Dating Framus guitars is done by a number on the inside label such as 65D which means April 1965. ie A = January B = February etc.

Look for a photo titled Your Dix with a Gaucho and Tenor and click enlarged view beneath it for close up of details such as 27 gns new that's guineas old money 27 pounds 27 shillings.

Thanks Robert!  How bout it Ted or Martin?

Hello Steve, Ted or Martin may be able to date it for you... my guess, and it's only a guess, would be April 1979... I'm not certain, but it's either a Dix or Doc Williams Jr. model. Anyone else? You'll get your questions answered here, there are some real Framus lovers in this group.
