Framus Electra Lap Steel mid fifties early sixties

Hawaiian music was already very successful in the thirties in the United States when in the beginning of the booming fifties the Germans started to get into hula dances and exotic sounds. Framus reacted to this trend and developed in 1953 the first West German Hawaiian guitar, the Electra Orchestra.

Later models followed with exotic names like Bali, Waikiki, Sumbawa and Tahiti, and they were designed with the help of leading musicians like Heinz Reinhardt of the Framus String Band. Probably the most famous European virtuoso of this instrument, namely Theo Ehrlicher who was a member of the Dutch band Kilima-Hawaiians, also promoted Framus Hawaiian guitars. This 6-string Electra model has a solidbody construction, black rose finish, ebony fretboard with inlay, white celluloid headstock overlay, chrome cover with "Framus Elektra" engraving, 1 pickup beneath the cover, two controls and two banana plug outputs. Excellent condition with some weath checking, non-original tuners. Includes hardshell case.
