an excellent vintage 60s made Framus 5/98 King acoustic guitar. In fantastic playing order, with a nice low action. Sunburst finish, with Kluson deluxe machineheads. These are more than likely not original, but we are unsure of the age of them. A beautifully aged Solid spruce top and solid mahogany sides, gives this guitar a gorgeous sound.

For being over 50 years old, the overall condition is good. There are plenty of playing marks and wear on the body, with a beautiful crazing of the original finish. Structurally, the guitar is brilliant and ready for another 50 years of play! 

The King itself is probably most recognised as Keith Richards’ acoustic guitar in the 60s with the Rolling Stones.
