Australian Guitar - - Feature -

This year, Framus de­buted the com­pleted Devin Townsend Storm­ben­der: Hevy Devy’s top-shelf sig­na­ture model with his Fish­man pick­ups, an EverTune bridge and some cool LEDs. It’s been in de­vel­op­ment for quite a while, but it’s fi­nally ready to go – and it’s heavy. Townsend is also de­vel­op­ing a more af­ford­able ver­sion, which will be stripped back and sim­ple – that one is still a while off, though. Also on dis­play was Alice In Chains vo­cal­ist and gui­tarist William DuVall’s new Tal­is­man sig­na­ture model, which is avail­able as a Cus­tom Shop Master­built gui­tar as well as a Pro Se­ries Team­built in­stru­ment. Framus also an­nounced the D Se­ries: a more af­ford­able line which is likely where the afore­men­tioned stripped-down Devy model will sit. Also called the Framus Stan­dard Se­ries, these gui­tars are made in China along­side the War­wick Rock­Bass Se­ries. The line in­cludes a Phil X artist model, and more af­ford­able ver­sions of var­i­ous Di­ablo and Pan­thera shapes.
