Framus Teambuilt Diablo II Pro

Should we say “Strat”? No is our answer to make a clear statement immediately. This Framus Teamloot Diablo II Pro clearly has its own design, character, feel and clear sound. If we look at the idiosyncratic curves, you can say that the department design has passed with flying colors. Framus has its own unique style because, among other things, these curves appear more often. How wonderful is the thickness of the body. Once the guitar is on your leg or around your neck, you are one with the guitar. We often say that you have to feel it to experience it. Videos and beautiful photos are great, but you get the best experience by holding the guitar yourself, feeling it, playing it and experiencing the experience. The head is also fantastically beautiful with the dots. Perhaps a personal taste, but it is clearly visible that we are dealing with Framus here.

The model has everything we love: a US swamp ash body, maple neck with a rosewood fretboard, Graphtech ratio tuners, Wilkinson tremolo, Seymour Duncan pickups. In short, wonderful specs. Swamp Ash gets its name from the place in which it grows, namely the warm moist swamps in America. This climate causes the trees to grow quickly and develop larger growth rings, making the wood lightweight. Swamp Ash is also called swamp ash. It is light in weight and color, shows a beautiful flame and gives a great sound. In short, a great body with stunning looks. The sound can be described as sweet-sounding, with clear highs, defined mids and strong lows. This wood has a great balance between brightness and warm tones. It is not without reason that 1950s guitars from an American brand are highly valued.

The maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard and contains 22 extra high jumbo frets of 2.6mm wide and 10mm high. These have also been carefully treated with the IFT - Invisible Fretwork Technology & Plek Fretwork. All Teambuilt models receive this treatment. Unique because even high-end brands do not apply this. Framus does not shy away from anything and demands perfection, so we still use these techniques without private stock prices.

Then the Seymour Duncan pickups. The SCR-1N in the neck delivers an articulate and full sound, just like a full-size humbucker. Its medium output also makes it a great sonic match for a Hot Rails, JB Jr., or other standard sized bridge humbucker

DThe SSL center pickup is described by Seymour as “our period-correct vintage output Strat pickups (SSL-1) that deliver all the authentic chime and bell sounds that Stratocaster players enjoyed in the 1950s.” Finally, the TB-4 JB. The JB Model humbucker is our most popular pickup of all time. Blues, country, fusion, punk, hard rock, grunge, thrash; the JB has always sounded just right, even as new genres emerged around it. The lows are full and powerful, the highs are clear and detailed and there's a bump in the upper midrange that adds crunch and chunk to heavy chords but translates to a singing, vocal quality when playing single notes or solos. Meanwhile, the hot output pushes your amp that little bit harder for more sustain and harmonics. And all this with push-pull. In short, you really have to hear and feel these pickups for yourself. You won't be disappointed.

Then we have a Wilkinson vibrato with Framus bridge. We can only praise this. Stays in tune after use and that's what you want!

The fantastic satin finish on the front and back completes this guitar and the musicians who visit the shop are very enthusiastic about it. This guitar feels like a natural product. We say "That's right"

You really have to try this guitar yourself and it is a workhorse for the versatile guitarist and can be used for many styles. Supplied with a sturdy gig bag, authenticity document and this model was built with a lot of love. We now have a Nirvana black and natural finish in stock.
