Given his experience as a Senior Master Builder at the Fender Custom Shop + his time at Gibson's Custom Shop, b3's Gene Baker has a tremendously deep well to draw from with his designs, and this 2022 Korina Phoenix model is the perfect encapsulation of his experience and knowledge.
Designed to be a Firebird dressed up in more comfortable Telecaster clothing, this particular Phoenix shows its late 50s Gibson influence via the gorgeous Korina body and neck, Brazilian fingerboard, gold hardware, and white pickguard.
From the super comfy Standard C (.83"-.96") neck carve to the fast neck-through heel construction, to the fantastic sounding Amber Goldrush mini humbuckers, to the rock solid hardware and beautiful finish work, the Phoenix is a powerhouse of player-centric design. This guitar is such a blast to play!
Condition: Near mint.
