  • Vintage Framus identification

    Hi all!

    A friend of mine has this guitar and we're trying to determine the exact model/year of this Framus.

    He did find some markings that's pretty hard to read, Model 5180/59 (or similar) with serial number 59566 60M


    I've found this guard but it doesn't specify the model:

    A cool design. Any chance to have a picture of the label inside (through the soundhole) or of the markings on the back of the headstock? It could be a special version of a Sorella 5/95 from December 1966 (66M) but I‘ve never seen this kind of string holder.

      I'll ask him, thanks!

          It looks like President model but with additional pickups/guard. Did Framus sold separately pickguard/pickups?

            I think RamHead nailed it! It's a 5/80-59-52 Präsident Resonanz Electric, made between 1958 and 1960. I'm pretty sure... What a great model... Maybe your friend can send better pictures. This would perfectly fit the Framus photo gallery Just right there : ^^

              Wow, a 5/80 President from December 1960 (60M). Please more pics to private gallery!

                I'll ask him, but he's using some ancient phone

                Any idea what this guitar could fetch these days? He's thinking of selling it, we're in EU.

                  Good question, there aren‘t many Presidents around these days . But anywhere above 1.000 Euro would not surprise me...but that‘s just me.
