    Does anybody out there know anything about Framer double basses?
     
  2. You wouldn't mean "Framus" would you? The were made back in the mid '60's and had a cut-away shoulder to make it easier to play in thumb positions.
     
  3. That's what i'd guess too Bill. They did make some non-cut-aways as well.
    At one time Framus had an endorsement by Charles Mingus.
    They also came out with a God-awful metal bridge.
