Example of Phoenix acoustic guitar
   Phoenix Guitar

 

The Phoenix is the guitar of choice for guitar players who need that little extra punch to their sound. 

Its 650 mm scale and its bigger body, give extra bass response for blues and stage work, whilst still giving fantastic high ends. Great for rhythm and acoustic lead work.  The Phoenix  works, and also looks great in its cut-away version.
