View Full Version : Framus 12-string

A family member gave me this Framus 12-string guitar (made in 1963). I recently put a new set of strings on it and love the tone :drool After some searching I haven't been able to find any info on what this guitar might be worth. I'm hoping someone here can tell me more about it.
Here are some pics:

John Lennon played a Framus 12-string on "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," so it's worth keeping around for that alone. They come up on eBay once in a while -- try searching past auctions.

Thanks. I just did a search and saw a similar guitar recently was bid on, but didn't reach the reserve price. I'm guessing mine is a "Campus King" model.
Here's the one that was posted on ebay:

You're guitar is actually a Framus "Camping King" model 5/019. Although there is not a specific page dedicated to this model on the Framus Vintage website, it is pictured in an old ad for it on the Folk/Western page, here: http://www.framus-vintage.de/modules/modells/modells.php?classID=2&typeID=13,29,59-65,562&katID=4635&cl=EN
