|Frampton Telecaster Thinline Model
This brand was distributed by Aria (Pearl Gakki ?) here. Made by Matsumoku. I'm not sure Frampton brand detailed.
I think the sales must be very poor.
Well, this guitar is probably made by Matsumoku. The construction is alsmot same with early time
Greco Matsumoku made Tele Thinline guitar model.
The body is made by many piece of wood like pancake construction. The top is, of course, PLY wood.
The neck is 3P by Maple. The nut is like Gibson type (41.7 mm width).
Well, it is not really good Fender Replica, but it has enough value for telling the history.
The weight is 3.66 Kg. PU should be original. But the selector switch was replaced by previous
owner. The Top wood has a bit crack. For me, it is very good looking, anyway.
This is not great condition guitar, anyway. However, it is exactly history teller.
Pretty intresting JV guitar!
