I've got one also that my brother-in-law got during vietnam while in Germany. He had loaned $200 to some guy who couldn't pay him back, so he gave him the guitar. Based on this info, I can't imagine that the guitar was worth at that time in Germany more than $300-$400. But I don't know the exchange rate at that time. All I know is that the guitar is really, I mean really great to play -- great action and great tone. It has a built-in pick-up which I haven't tested yet. I just got it from my in-law last week.

I too have a framus. It is a Romanze 5/103 which I believe is the model. It is a tear drop shaped 6 string acoustic. I saw one on ebay just today for over $3,000 I was in shock! I am not sure how much I could sell it for if I wanted too, but I was just curious of it's worth. I would suggest you try to find the model number on the inside of the guitar and try looking it up that way if you can't try the serial number on the inside :)

I have just been given an old Framus Accoustic which has seen better days. I was wondering if anyone out there knew of a Framus parts dealer from whom I could purchase a new neck from. The wear on this one is extrordinary and it is not worth having the neck re-built. Ideally I would like to rebuild it but cost is of course a consideration. Anyhow, please get in touch if any of you guys out there can help me. Thanks all, and bye for now.

Hi there I have one of these guitars as well.
It's an arch top acoustic with a pick up in the bridge.
A small bodied guitar tobacco sunburst with a floating bridge, the label is still inside reading, 5/51, serial No 53277, 61M.
Can you give any more information about this beautiful little baby.
