Framus Strato 4 Bass 5/156 1970’s Sunburst
Information about the Framus Basses:
With their first attempts at making electric basses, Framus had difficulties stepping away from the acoustic resonating body just like it did already with the electric guitars: The Hollywood Bass from the late fifties was still based on a semi solid construction. It had a Star Bass byname like some later models: Hollywood Star Bass, Strat®o Star Bass, Strat®o de Luxe Star Bass or even Framus Golden de Luxe Star Bass – which didn’t sound too bad. And in view of the famous musicians who used the instruments, these names weren’t just hollow words – German basses had already a good reputation among professional musicians in the sixties.
