Framus Super Jumbo FJ 14M NS acoustic guitar reviewed by TopGuitar magazine

TopGuitar is proud to inform, that the June issue of the magazine features a review of Framus Super Jumbo FJ 14M NS acoustic guitar. The instrument was delivered for review by the manufacturer, Framus.

Below are some excerpts from a review by gear department editor Maciek Warda:

“In recent years, along with the Legacy line of guitars, Warwick & Framus have been gravitating back towards tradition, focusing on folk/western acoustic guitars – best example of which is the tested Framus Super Jumbo FJ 14M NS model.”

“The guitar’s body amplifies the sound very well – the notes are loud, full, tonally rich, making the instrument perfect for both studio and live use. The attack is sharp and the sustain kicks in very quickly. It’s like getting a punch in the face from the guitar no matter how loud or quiet you play it.”

“Framus Super Jumbo is designed to brighten the mix of a band. Its tone is not cold, but it has a sharp contoured edge, which defines the sound as sparkling, glittering with a plethora of fresh, pure musical colors. When strumming chords in basic positions, the consonance of notes is just overpowering, forming a dense and loud wall of sound.”
