Nice instrument there! I've seen one around the internet every now and again but never in person. Bizarre guitars, but it looks great. Enjoy.

very good guitars for stage work but i personally need the feel the guitar's soundbox against my tummy and this one doesn't have a soundboard where i could rest my fingers on .... anyway, you'll make some beautiful noise with it i'm sure and so does Towner !!!
congrats and my respect for having the patience to wait that long !

Congrats! I've enjoyed seeing Towner play his and Muthspiel's recordings as well...

Is there a truss rod adjustment on the guitar? After you settle in with the guitar I'd love to hear your review.

it's hard to see, but there's an opening for truss rod adjustment in the middle.



quote from the website:

The JAZZ FRAME for the use with medium or heavy gauge ”electric guitar” strings, additionally equipped with an ebony covered magnetic pickup at the neck position - custom-made by HÄUSSEL PICKUPS.

Necks of the steel-string models are reinforced with a two-way adjustable truss rod. String action and intonation is adjustable via individual sliding bridge saddles. Frames meet the body at the 14th/18th fret, providing optimum access to the higher frets.

Refined fingerstyle techniques are aided by the wider fingerboard (45 mm at saddle), which uses the traditional 16” radius. Side dot markers provide easy fingerboard orientation.

Available with optional built-in MIDI access for connection to Guitar-to-MIDI converters.

What was the price range? Prices aren't listed on the website. Thanks. Four year wait? That must have been painful!

Thanks! That is going to be a fun guitar to play!

Frank just completed a 7-String version of his Frameworks steel string jazz model for me. It arrives this Friday! The wait time was 4 1/2 months.

congratulations. It's one guitar that I'd love to try. Everyone I know of who owns one just seemed thrilled and they're all very serious players.
