NAMM 2020: Framus unveils the 5/51 Studio Parlor

The latest electric hollowbody from the manufacturer.

NAMM 2020: Framus has announced the 5/51 Studio Parlor, A mini-humbucker equipped archtop.

Framus describe the guitar as “visually, technically and sonically a highlight, which is just as suitable for working in the studio as for live gigs and practicing or recording at home.”

The Framus 5/51 Studio Parlor inherits from the Legacy Parlor FP 14, updating its design ethos to a hollow-bodied electric. The top and back of the Framus 5/51 Studio Parlor are laminated maple, the set neck (C profile) is maple, sporting an ebony fingerboard, 18 medium nickel frets, a bone nut and a 24.75” scale-length. The hollow body is loaded with a single Framus Alnico V mini humbucker in the neck position, with master volume and tone controls. It also sports a wooden jazz guitar bridge.


The Framus 5/51 Studio Parlor will be only available as a right-handed model, and comes in either a Black Solid High Polish, a Honey Sunburst Transparent High Polish or a Burgundy Blackburst Transparent High Polish finish.
