Has anyone ever heard of a Framus Werkr giutar made in Bolivia Germany. Gorgeous giutar needs work. Bought as an antique it does have serial number. Any info???? would be appreciated. Oh, it's steel string accoustic.Can't figure out where the buzz on from the 3rd string is originating from? Thanks a Bunch Susan

Susan:

The Framus company is just a little over 50 years old, so I don't think this guitar qualifies as an antique by the normal definition of something that is over 100 years old.

The Framus company is in Markneukirchen, which is in Bavaria. Perhaps you are reading Bavaria as Bolivia.

They're nice guitars, I own two of them, one twelve string and one six string. The buzz could well be from a warped neck, they have truss rods in them. It's worth fixing. Take it to a good guitar repair shop, have them look at it.

Good luck. By the way, it is Bavaria, not Bolivia

I have a 1970 framus 6-string, it's actualy my fathers, but if you get a buzz for the 3rd string,its most likely that your finger is about a milometer to close to the fret. there's probably no way of fixing it other than care full fingering
