The Framus Sorento was one of a number of thin line arch top electric guitars introduced by Framus in the '60s, and features many of the design elements that make Framus guitars from this period so distinctive. This example from 1960 features a Spruce top and laminated back and sides, with a 'black rose' finish. The body is fitted with a set of oval single coil pickups, covering everything from smooth jazz sounds to brighter, janglier tones more akin to '60s rock. The bolt on neck features a chunky yet comfortable vintage style profile. Other features include a trapeze tailpiece, pickup switching controls house in a celluloid pickguard, and open gear tuners.
This guitar is in very good condition, and has been given a full service by our luthiers at the Vintage Instrument Workshop, and includes a 3 year warranty.
