Basone Guitars has released two Basone Phoenix models, which they describe as their new production line of electrics.
These two particular guitars are described as a hybrid of bookmatched Honduran Mahogany, coupled with a Brazilian bookmatched top of Angico wood (a type of Rosewood). The guitars feature British Columbian AAA flamed Maple and are also equipped with Cabrera pickups, a Rio de Janeiro based pickup company.
The Angico Chambered Carved Top has a matching Angico fingerboard. Its headstock is also Angico, and a classic-shaped reversed soundhole rounds out the look and feel.
The Solid Body version is said to follow a more traditional style with its Ebony fingerboard and Mahogany body, designed to create a more direct, hard-yet balanced sound. The Chambered version, has “lighter weight, extra harmonic value, and a chimey natural reverb with bassier feel, ” according to Basone.
Both models are outfitted with Sperzel tuners and GraphTech Resomax bridge systems.
