Review: Framus Diablo Progressive X Guitar
The following content is related to the April 2013 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now, or in our online store.
Framus is famous for producing the museum-quality, vintage-style guitars favored by artists like Earl Slick, Elliot Easton and John Jorgenson. But the German guitar maker also applies its uncompromising craftsmanship and engineering excellence to guitars made for metal players, like the new Diablo Progressive X.
Its design wisely defers to many of the ideals established by metal guitar makers in the early Eighties, including the belief that rounder neck profiles create more sustain, and that medium-to-heavyweight bodies offer a fuller tone with driven amps.
As with Framus’ other superlative planks, this combination of established ideologies, unerring German technology and famously resonant woods results in a guitar that’s as exciting as it is refined.
