For all guitarists who feel six or seven string isn't enough, Framus has upgraded: a Framus Panthera eight string, made in Germany, is now part of the essential repertoire.
The body of this eight string Panthera is completely made of Mahogany with a carved top. The Maple neck is laminated with Santos Rosewood stripes, which additionally stabilize the neck. The fretboard is also made of Rosewood with a 27" scale length.
The sound of this "deep-tone" guitar is captured by two active Seymour Duncan pickups. The 24 Extra High Jumbo Nickelsilver frets are installed and perfectly dressed with our patented Invisible Fret Technology
, as well as the fluorescent side dots, which also are set into the neck of the instrument with Framus' unique neck processing unit.
Furthermore the eight-string Panthera is equipped with Sperzel Trim-Lok machine heads, a GraphTech Black Tusq Low Friciton nut, a Hipshot Fixed Bridge and Chrome hardware. Available finishes: Natural Satin, Coloured Oil, High Polish topwith Satin back and sides or completely High Polish.
