Legendary German guitarist Wolf Hoffmann (ACCEPT) has recently unveiled his new signature guitar. It is a 6 string guitar which has been developed and manufactured according to his needs by Framus.
Wolf has recently joined Mohsen Fayyazi‘s Burning Crown to describe his new guitar in more details.
He described his new guitar as follows:
“It’s the best guitar I’ve ever owned. When I opened the case for the first time I was just blown away. Framus have done such a beautiful job that I’m speechless.
The paint job on this particular guitar resembles a vintage WW2 bomber – hence the name “Flying Fortress” – it has aluminum paint with real rivets and bomber decals . This guitar is the ultimate war machine !!
The idea behind this Flying V is that it’s a cross between a V and a Strat. It obviously has the traditional V shape but there are many Strat features also. First of all the (maple)body is contoured so it is much more comfortable to play, then there is a Titanium Floyd System by Floyd Upgrades, EMG pickups (81in the bridge and a single coil SA in the neck position.) Also check out the cool headstock design, the tiger striped ebony fingerboard with mother of pearl inlays and Invisible Fret Technology and also the neck – through construction. To me, in terms of the craftsmanship and quality nobody today can touch Framus Guitars !!” Wolf continued describing “Germans make good stuff, everybody knows that. They make the best cars, they make really good microphones.“
When Wolf was asked about how he found out about Framus and why he chose them, he said:
“I’ve been in touch with Framus for about a year about this new guitar. We were first in touch about 2 years ago about possibly doing a signature guitar. They finally had a prototype ready for me in the fall on this last tour. So I have been using Framus guitars on this last tour exclusively. you know it’s just one of those things, and when they decided to make a signature for me I was very very excited, because I know they make the best guitars in the world.”
Wolf stated about his upcoming solo album:
“I’ve actually started work on new follow up material already, so hopefully it won’t be long before I can release it.“
