Framus has announced its new Wolf Hoffmann Signature guitar.

The model, named for the Accept guitarist, is made in Germany in coordination with the Framus Custom Shop and is available now.

The guitar's maple body curved three-dimensionally. The shape ergonomically suits the right hand and reduces the weight of the guitar. The fretboard is made of tiger stripe ebony with block/pyramid inlays; 24 nickelsilver frets are installed with Framus’ Invisible Fret Technology and dressed by plek technology.
