My New Baby: Framus Diablo Light Scotch Custom

Hey guys, I just sold my JEM and selling my cheap Crate 65 watt amp(not too bad) and Just put a Framus Diablo Light Scotch Custom on layaway. Got it used at guitar center for $1000 (USD). In amazing condition, no scratches or anything! Great deal huh?! Anyways, looking to get a tube/amp of some kind for Gilbert,Vai,Satch sounds, really looking at the Bugera 333XL or anything that I like between 500-700$. Anyways, I'll be picking up the guitar later this week, waiting for funds. It plays AMAZING! I set it up at guitar center and put new strings on and lowered the action and all and it played amazing! Heres a link to the site if you don't know what I'm talking about:

Don't worry, my own pics will be up by the end of the week! Anyone else have one of these? tell me about it!
Pictures and specs. from Framus:

Sarcasm? Lol cause at first it doesn't look nice, but it really is, more so than Ibanez in my opinion.

Just two screws on the neck joint ???

Nah, not that I noticed, I'm sure it was well thought out. These guitars are pretty popular(obviously not one of the big 10) but they are German made, and really nice and expensive(to a degree, around 2000

Yeah it really is. Random, but one of the cool things about the guitar is the coil splitting/tapping. Push pull volume pot.

I've seen joints like this before (haha) and they usually have two screws under the neck pickup.

Perfect example of a non-f-spaced bridge pickup.

Very nice looking guitar.

Re: My New Baby: Framus Diablo Light Scotch Custom

Looks very comfy. The joint kinda reminds me of the neck joint on one of my guitars in terms of the slant and the small size, it really is very comfortable. Some people like to feel the heel and brace their hand on it, but for me the further down the neck I can get without touchin the heel, the better I like it .

That's what's up on this one...have you seen the Anderson A wedge? Similar premise...also the new Taylor electrics have a two bolt attachmment like the anderson...but they only have two bolts on each one...the Andy is cool because of the carve of the joint on the body and the neck make more wood contact on each side...it's nutty.
