This looks a lot like a Framus I restored several years ago as a senior airman stationed at Pope AFB.  I found the guitar, badly neglected, in a pawn shop in Fayetteville, NC.  It originally was yellow and black in color, but when I sanded the body down its wood grain looked so nice I decided to finish off my 12 string in a natural hue.  I added an inscription under the pickguard when my work was complete.  It was a labor of love, but I was rewarded with a fine sounding guitar that traveled with me everywhere, including England.  Sadly, I was not able to 'carry on' my instrument during a flight home one Christmas, they had me check it in with the baggage. I made it home, it did not, and it was never recovered.  This picture brings back a lot of good memories for me, thanks so much! - Pete
