S/S/S Spectrum...

Post by corsair on Mon May 14, 2018 4:50 pm

Ok, chaps - don't get panicy; I know there's no such thing but there IS in the Phoenix line and I'd quite like one, preferably in rag order so that I can restore/refinish it.
If our North American members would keep in mind that Corsair would like an Electra Phoenix X175JB OR X145VS when visiting guitar shops, second hand shops or pawn shops, I would be ever so grateful!!

:-)

You do know the new resurrected Electra line has just what you're after eh?
Phoenix S-S-S

I'm sure Chad will be along soon to extol the virtues of the new Phoenix too. Wink

Yeah, mate... I do, and as much as I'd love a new, sparkly guitar, I'm not gigging and can't justify it. I can, however, justify the purchase of a beat up, old guitar seven ways from Sunday....

And if it was to be a new Electra, then it would be a Talon...

The new ones are great, absolutely. And they sell for CHEAP on the secondhand market, surprisingly. They feel and sound the business, too.

But there's nothing like the old ones, I understand that. Smile

Yep; I see that one on eBay as well... given it's condition and taking shipping into consideration, I'm gonna offer considerably less than that...
