I remember seeing a Framus with that neck joint and there should be two more screws under the neck pick-up. Nice score btw evan!

Yeah, that 2 bolt setup is wacky looking! Looks great though, congrats on the score. What's the neck profile like on her?

Re: Got my Framus today! Pictures and video!

Thanks guys! The neck joint is actually very comfy. You can easily hit higher frets. The neck prfile is a bit fatter than Ibanez Wizards. Not as fat as a LP or anything though.
Im actually going to sell this thing, or return it, because it is VERY bright sounding, and it has that Stagmag ppickup that is supper bright too. I could just change the pickups, but I think the swamp ash body material has something to do with it as well. Besides, changing the pup would void the warranty. I just got a Bugera 333xl 212 combo and the sound from the guitar just isnt fat enough. I tried my guitar teacher's guitar(rg470 w/ a tonezone) and it sounded SO much better through the amp than my guitar. So I think I'm going to get a cheaper guitar, but still MIJ or something and invest the rest on a nicer amp or effects.

Lol, I always love when someone posts about loving a guitar they just got so much and three days later they write that they're selling it. Didnt ya try it at the store and really love it, or am I thinking of someone else?

Hahaha, I did, but you know what its like at a music store...loud and some cheesy music playing in the background...or some losers who plug in to a marshall MG stack and start playing out of tune power chords. Nah, but the neck feels amazing, its just the tone is way to bright.

Re: Got my Framus today! Pictures and video!

So...*just my suggestion*, change the pickups. If you love everything else about the guitar, theres no reason to get rid of it just because you dont like one pickup.

No but the whole guitar is made of bright materials(swamp ash). I just dont think the pickup would make as dramatic of a change as it would in say a Fender or Ibanez. I kind of want 24 frets and mahogany or basswood back anyways.

Which is why you didn't buy anything like that in the first place.
Make sense.....

I know, but, I like maple fretboards a lot too though, and 22 frets didnt bother me too much, but I think I've decided on getting a Ibanez RGA321F Prestige:
