I found a rare Framus 12 string at a flea market and I didn't even notice it had a 16 fret neck. With all that neck and all that head the only case I can use is a gig bag and it sticks out about 6".…Continue

Thanks for the photos. They are certainly beautiful guitars. I woul love a 12 and a dreadnought. But I will have to wait a bit.

The same process with serial numbers happened with the Gaucho first 5/94 then with the moustache bridge 5/194 I think the older ones might have been solid tops the newer laminate.

In my humble opinion the Western is just a Dix renamed they look identical except for the updated bridge in fact the ad below states  "A big Western" model  beside the Dix. Also has 27gns as the price that Guineas ie 27 pounds 27 shillings in english old money.

Hi All,

Robert thanks for the vote of confidence but I Wish on both counts.


I have some catalogue pics on my page and your guitar is very very similar to a Dix 5/95 I think the guitar you have is one but a little younger and they have added the moustache bridge but hey I'm probably wrong.

Ginger. The link didn't work this morning but I just tried it tonight and it worked fine what a great story that one is I have set up many a guitar for free myself but I've never advertised the fact.
