I too have a Framus Texan 12 string. You can tell the year of manufacture by the serial number line in the guitar sound hole. The serial number is the 5 digit number and the year of manufacture follows it...like 69, etc.
The guitar is not an expensive guitar. Mine too has the curved back. Most have an adjustable neck. Dont try to adjust the neck yourself...take to a reputable guitar repair shop to have the neck adjusted. Overall the guitar has a nice tone...You might need new machine heads too. Get some good strings and have some fun with it. You most likely cant hurt it. Most of the materials are laminates so dont get it wet or leave it exposed to the direct sunlight. The one I have was purchased in a pawn shop by my brother in the 80's for $100. Play it and enjoy it.

I just picked up a Framus Texan 5/296 12 string. Serial # 5150, 68A. I guess this means it was made in 1968 in a month that starts with "A" in German (August?). I'd like to take off the metal pieces and give them a good cleaning. Any suggestions on what to use?
