Made in Germany by Framus, ca. 1965. The 6/41 Graziella or Graciella has an arched back pear-shaped body, arched select spruce top, arched maple back, maple sides, standard body binding, 18-fret rosewood fingerboard, chrome nickel tuners, and trapeze chrome tailpiece.
This rare example features a single bound cat's-eye soundhole (most of these models had two soundholes), usually found on electric models to accommodate knobs. Deep body. All original with exception of faceplate refinished, pickguard hand-painted and one side of tuners replaced (originals are impossible to come by; non-standard spacing complicates replacement). Solid construction, fully reconditioned. Excellent condition and playability. Clear tone and good action. No structural issues. Fretboard has been reglued and bolt-on neck shimmed for proper action. Set up and guaranteed 60 days by luthier-owner (sold cosmetically as-is). With clean used chipboard case.
