60s Framus Billy Lorento BL10

Framus Billy Lorento

This is a late 60s Framus BL10 Billy Lorento (aka Willi Lorenz aka Bela Lorentowsky aka Bill Lawrence).

Herr Lorenz is without any doubt an authority in guitar pickups, but this model looks like a shaped planck - that is always a failure for a guitar. On the other hand the shape itself is quite good, and in my opinion an unexplored yet direction for future guitar design.

  1. I have one of these still that I bought at a US Army PX in Wurzburg, Germany in April 1969 for $100. It is an excellent guitar, the body is solid mahogany, the fretboard ebony, the quality and playability and sound is great!
