Framus has pulled the curtains back on two new Diablo II models: the Diablo II Supreme X Masterbuilt and Diablo II Pro Teambuilt. The Diablo II range was first introduced at NAMM 2019, as seen in the video above.
The two guitars build on the first iteration of the Diablo, incorporating a tweaked silhouette as well as the contours of the brand’s Idolmaker series. Both are similar in the electronics department, featuring a trio of Seymour Duncan pups: a SCR-1N Cool Rail in the neck, a SSL-1 RW/RP in the middle and a TB-4 JB Trembucker in the bridge.
They both also have master volume and tone (with push/pull for humbucker splitting) knobs, a five-way switch and a Wilkinson vibrato system. Here are a few more details on each guitar:
Diablo II Supreme X Masterbuilt
Manufactured in Framus’ Custom Shop, this axe is the more premium of the two. It features a swamp ash body, carved AAAA flamed maple top, “bolt-in” flamed maple neck, rose fretboard with fluorescent side dots and Graph Tech Ratio locking tuners with wooden knobs. Watch the video above for a quick explanation of the “bolt-in” feature.
Lists for €5,279.
Diablo II Pro Teambuilt
The more affordable Teambuilt model features a swamp ash body – without a top – “bolt-in” regular maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and regular Graph Tech Ratio Locking machines.
It also comes in a wide range of finishes: Burgundy Red Transparent Satin, Ocean Blue Transparent Satin, Nirvana Black Transparent Satin, Amber Transparent Satin, Antique Tobacco Transparent Satin, Vintage Sunburst Transparent High Polish and Natural Transparent Satin.
Lists for €1,899.
Both guitars will be available from July. More information at framus.de.
