This vintage quality German made (in the 1960s/70s) Framus guitar has a solid Spruce top, one piece bolt on Mahagony neck, Maple back and sides. It has been converted to an eight string instrument that can be used as an Octave Mandolin, Mandocello or Bouzouki with either Greek or Irish (unison or octave) tunings. It has a 24 5/8" scale which is in the Mandocello range. That is a little long for an Octave Mandolin and somewhat short scale for a Bouzouki but can be readily used for any of these. It has a working adjustable truss-rod and chrome die cast machine heads with heart shaped buttons. Low action, looks, plays and sounds good. It does not come with a case but many manufacturers make similar sized guitars so cases that fit are not hard to find.

$400 cash or make offer.
