The new Phoenix bass retains much of the forward thinking design ideas of the original bass while updating the design and electronics to meet the needs for the modern bass player. Moving the bass side horn out to the 12th fret and adding generous belly, forearm and treble side horn contours makes this bass comfortable to play while retaining its aggressive look. The Phoenix Bass is also Electra’s first collaboration with EMG and includes two specially designed EMG HZ-P pickups feeding a B/T circuit and 5-way rotary switch providing players a slew of varying tones. The Phoenix Bass will be available in a Swamp Ash body with Natural finish and Maple fretboard, as well as an Alder body with Gloss Black finish and Ebony fretboard. The Phoenix bass will start at an estimated $999.About Electra Guitars
