Framus D-Series Idolmaker

Framus has released a D-Series version of the Idolmaker. This model was previously offered in the brand’s more premium Custom Shop, Masterbuilt and Teambuilt categories.

Despite its relatively affordable price tag, the China-made D-series Idolmaker features some enviable specs. These include a mahogany body with an AAAA flamed maple top, mahogany neck with Tigerstripe ebony fretboard and Seymour Duncan pups. The latter consists of a an SH-1n (neck) and SH-4b (bridge).

These pups are wired to a three-way pickup switch as well as master volume and tone controls. And rounding out the instrument’s features are chrome hardware and a Tune-o-matic bridge, which provide a nice complement to the striking Nirvana Black Transparent finish.

Retails at €969. More info at
