Metal Phoenix

b3 Models

"A Tele on steroids has a collision with a Firebird." Meet the Phoenix, the new and highly popular model in Gene's exciting neck thru body Metal series. A strong seller from the moment it was introduced in 2012, the Phoenix comes in an expanded range of options for 2013 (Humbucker variations, Strat control layout or Tele control layout, more). Many Phoenix models are single piece of wood - no "wings" glued onto a center neck plank - for superior tone transfer and resonance.
