Warwick and Framus Custom Shop closes on East 7th Street
Catching up to this closure... we recently noticed that the custom guitar-bass showroom at 76 E. Seventh St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue had been emptied out... and multiple past-rent notices are taped to the storefront.
The renowned German brand's first New York location arrived back in the fall of 2009.
Notable Framus players though the years (the company launched in 1946, and took on the Warwick name following bankruptcy in 1995) include Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones and Messrs. Lennon, McCartney and Harrison of the Beatles, among many others.
The storefront was previously home to the Addukkan Moroccan crafts shop.
