Wolf Hoffmann‘s first signature guitar will be called the “Flying Fortress.” It is a 6 string guitar which has been developed and manufactured according to his needs. This guitar is now available from Framus as a Signature model.
Wolf commented:”“ Growing up in Germany everybody had a Framus guitar at one point or another and I could have never anticipated that one day I would be friends with Hans Peter Wilfer, the man behind the re-birth of his father’s legendary brand. I had no idea what an amazing company they really are until I went to their factory and saw first hand the unbelievable craftsmanship and quality they deliver. I am happy and proud to introduce my first signature guitar, a real “Heavy Metal Axe” – made in Germany ! “
