Gear Reviews


TopGuitar is proud to announce, that the 5/120 Billy Lorento electric guitar from Framus had been reviewed for the July issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Grzegorz Ufnal, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“Framus 5/120 Billy Lorento is an interesting and unique instrument for people looking for extraordinary solutions. The guitar is modern to the bone but its tone goes straight back to the ’50s. Yet the sound quality is still modern, distinctive, and meets the highest studio and live standards we are used to.”

“Original design and characteristic sound will definitely grab your attention. There are not many guitars like that on the market and it’s great that the German manufacturer included this type of instrument in its catalogue. (…) Framus offers us new, super comfortable thinline instruments.”
