The Framus & Warwick Factory Tour

hosted by Devin Townsend

Canadian guitarist, singer, songwriter and producer extraordinaire Devin Townsend is not only a universal musical genius on every level, but also a die-hard fan of our Framus guitars and Warwick basses. Devin already gave us the honor of visiting our factory in Markneukirchen, Germany, on several occasions. Each time, we could not help noticing his enormous interest in our one-of-a-kind factory. Eventually, he approached us and expressed his interest in learning the secrets of our both cutting-edge and tradition- steeped production techniques.

Faced with so much enthusiasm, we simply had to say yes!

And as the metal superstar proved to be an extraordinarily gifted luthier in training, you can now enjoy the world-exclusive Framus/Warwick Factory Tour extravaganza hosted by Devin Townsend in seven thrilling parts (now say that quickly ten times!

During the coming six days, a new video from the one-of-a-kind feature series will be published every 24 hours at 14:00. We hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind documentary that is as entertaining as it is informative! Among other things, it was extremely obvious that Devin found our cutting-edge lacquering booth especially fascinating.

But listen, kids - do us a favour and don't try this at home, will you?

But that's not all - we are proud to announce that Devin has been nominated for this year's Progressive Music Awards - and in not one, but two categories, to boot: both "Live Event" and "Anthem".
