Framus has announced the Diablo Progressive X electric guitar, which it has aimed squarely at metal guitarists and shredders.

Progressive X certainly marks the spot when it comes to hard-rock credentials, with a Floyd Rose locking tremolo system and Seymour Duncan Jazz and Jazz/Blues Trembucker pickup combo.

Like the recently announced Panthera II Studio Supreme, the Diablo II Progressive X boasts a three-dimensional carved top and contours, while Plek fretwork and Invisible Fretwork Technology come as standard.

As with previous Framus releases, two versions will be available: Masterbuilt, with carved AAAA flamed maple top and flamed maple neck; and Teambuilt, which loses an A from its flamed maple top spec and features a standard maple neck.
