Framus Television model electric guitar in NYC for $350

I don't see many of these Framus electric guitars show up on CL so I wanted to point this one out.  These are interesting electrics and the construction quality is quite good.  They were made "on the edge of the Black Forest" in Germany in the 1960's and use complex multi-laminate construction.  Norman's Rare Guitars in LA has offered several Framus electric models over the years and he always stressed how well made they were - though like most European electrics the wiring can be a bit eccentric. that may be why the seller indicates this one needs to be rewired.   The inclusion of the vibrato arm is a big plus because you can go crazy trying to locate the correct arm for one of these.

I am reposting items here that are listed on CRAIGSLIST throughout the USA. I am not selling any of these items and I cannot facilitate the sale of anything here - so please do not comment or post questions like "Is this still available?" or "I am interested in your guitar please call me, etc." You need to contact the seller directly by calling the phone number listed on the post or by going to the CL listing and emailing them. NEW FEATURE: Click on the title of the CL Listing inside my post to LINK thru to the original Post. If the original CL listing is deleted the item most likely is no longer available. Thanks for checking out my blog and GOOD LUCK!

Please don't call, contact, bother or harass these sellers long after their post is expired. Take for granted if the listing is over 30 days old that the guitar or amp is LONG GONE! Thank you.
