Framus Teambuilt Television

In a earlier blog we put the Television Masterbuilt in the spotlight.

Today it's high time to highlight a Television Teambuilt. We do this to give you a better idea of the differences. In the upcoming 3rd blog about the Television model we will delve deeper into the differences between Master vs Teambuilt.

Both the Television Master- and Teambuilt are inspired by the Television model from the 1960s by Framus, but with a fresh makeover. The Television is a semi thinline hollow and in terms of looks it may have made a nod to a Jazzmaster or a Jaguar without losing its identity. Once you have this guitar in your hands, it feels like coming home. This teambuilt has a weight of 3.5 kg, so despite its slim shape you have enough body and weight when it comes to sound, among other things.

This Teambuilt Television has a top of AAA Maple and on the back you can find mahogany. So this is a big difference when you look at the Masterbuilt, the top & back of which has an AAAA maple finish. There is a world of difference in terms of sound and you have to experience it in our shop to hear and feel the differences. In our shop we have AAA and AAAA maple samples so you can hear the difference in sound when you tap them. It is special when guitarists come to our shop and hear the difference in the samples and then also with the guitar. You sometimes hear guitarists say that only pickups make the difference, but that is not the case. It is a total picture that gives the sound to the guitar.

When we look at the neck of the guitar we see a mahogany neck with a Rosewood fretboard and not a Tigerstripe Ebony fretboard like the Masterbuilt. Again, this also determines the sound of the guitar. As mentioned earlier, we will discuss the differences in more detail in the next blog. In our shop we have models with Ebony and Rosewood and we invite you to experience the difference when you play it yourself. The fingerboard has 22 extra high jumbo frets of 2.9mm wide and 1.3mm high. These have also been carefully treated with the IFT - Invisible Fretwork Technology & Plek Fretwork. All Teambuilt models receive this treatment. The round edges complete it completely. You can also find more information about this technology on our website.

The illuminated side dots are nice extras and super handy for when it is dark on stage. At the top we find Graphtec Ratio locking tuners and they do what they are supposed to do. Stable voting!

The Seymour Duncan APH1 pickup is the pickup you want. If you know what a Slash sounds like, for example, you know enough. What a wonderfully creamy tone these pickups have and in combination with the push-pull function you have so much variation in sound that this guitar is actually a must have. The Television is available in both Humbucker and P90 versions.

The finish in a vintage sunburst high gloss finish looks great. Besides sunburst, there are several color options at Framus that you can choose from. In our shop we have color samples on maple so you can immediately see what the result will be. There are also options with a satin finish and high gloss finish. A high gloss finish top with satin back or a total high gloss finish top and back. In short, many options without having to pay a private stock price immediately.

How does this model sound now? We can make beautiful videos with a super nice sound mix to make you immediately feel that "Wow" factor. How nice would it be if you came to our shop to experience for yourself how this guitar feels and plays and hopefully gives you the feeling of "This sounds and plays great."

We therefore invite you to decide for yourself what you can do with this guitar. Rock, blues, funk, pop, jazz, etc. No, not metal because then you would be better off choosing a Diablo II Supreme. This model is definitely a guitar to look at if you like heavy music.

We are convinced that Framus is the brand of 2021 and the future. Quality with a capital “Q”. This guitar comes with an authenticity document and is supplied in a luxurious gig bag. No suitcase? At Framus they have the philosophy that most musicians like to travel with a gig bag. Don't expect a wafer-thin gig bag, but a sturdy, solid gig bag that makes you say “that's how it should be”.
