Seymour Duncan and Framus Announce Framus Mayfield Legacy Vintage Sunburst Competition

Seymour Duncan and Framus Announce Framus Mayfield Legacy Vintage Sunburst Competition -

Seymour Duncan and Framus have teamed up to offer a chance for one lucky musician to win a Framus Mayfield Legacy Vintage Sunburst guitar.

The Legacy is a semi hollowbody with laminated Mahogany top and back, solid Mahogany sides, a Mahogany neck with Rosewood fingerboard, and 22 frets featuring IFT (Invisible Fretwork Technology), and PLEK fretwork. It features a pair of Seymour Duncan Vintage Soapbar SP90 pickups, faithful recreations of the original P90, wound with plain enamel wire on the same Leesona winder that wound the 1950s versions for authentic vintage tone. The Mayfield Legacy also features fluorescent side dots, Sperzel Trim-Lok machine heads, a Graph Tech Black Tusq low friction nut, Tone Pros Tune-O-Matic bridge, and Cleartone Strings gauged .010” - .046”. In the IFT system, the fret slots are not cut across the entire fingerboard. Instead, two millimeters of wood remain on each side, resulting in a 'U' profile which increases neck stability against twisting and improves the transfer of vibrations into the instrument. The system also prevents fret ends from extending beyond the edge of the fingerboard and impeding player comfort. 

Vintage Soapbar Pickups in Framus Mayfield Legacy

 

The guitar has an MSRP of $6999 and the giveaway is open worldwide until the end of 2013.
