2014 Electra Phoenix... bridge pickup slant

Post by The Chad on Fri Mar 21, 2014 12:16 pm

Anyone have an opinion on the reverse slant bridge single coil?  Like this...







Jimi a Strat with a reverse slant bridge pup.   Razz   Well, it's true, it was "reverse slanted" as far as we right handed folk are concerned, anyhow. 

Should be receiving this Phoenix in mid April, very excited.  But anyone have any experience with these reverse slant pups?

Nice looking guitar(should have a rosewood board Twisted Evil )

Whatever the difference in the slant, it's not going to be much in sound.

My thoughts exactly, it does need a rosewood board!

It's basically a brand new Westone Spectrum.

They're a dealer, yes.  The owner of the company is Ben Chafin from Dean (among others).  He bought the rights and began manufacturing.  I really like these designs.  Check them out on Facebook.

Click HERE for Electra Guitars Facebook page.

They're getting some good artist usage.  Can't wait to get my hands on one.

Oh cr@p! Just when I figured I'd not need anymore Spectrums!

I really love it with that trans wood finish, not crazy about the look of the pickups though.
I agree it should have a rosewood fretboard.

Hey Chad, how's the neck? Is it as wonderful as my beloved Specie? If it is, we have a winna!

Don't know about the neck yet, I won't know till she arrives.  I'm really excited for it.   bom   Will do a full report once I have it in hand.

These new Electra models are very well thought out and the quality and craftsmanship is exceptional and it shows. I have two of the new Electra Omega Prime models and they blew me away when I played them. Everything we like in the old designs but with new modern innovations and hardware. Ben and company have some awesome products with more in the works and are well deserving of a look see.
