Seller: collectorcantina (336) 100%, Location: Seattle, Washington, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 111117376096 Up for sale, a USA made Phantom Guitarworks Teardrop XII hollowbody electric guitar in exceptional, near mint condition and in perfect working order. Phantom Guitarworks operates our of Clatskanie, Oregon USA and makes the highest quality, faithful vintage Vox guitar recreations on the market today! Featuring better wood selection, hardware and pickups than the originals in most cases, this Teardrop XII is an exceptional vintage style instrument for a shockingly low price. This Teardrop XII in particular was a limited edition model that was offered with the twelve string vibrato unit, and is not currently available from the manufacturer. Featuring a full-hollow maple body and maple neck with a thick slab rosewood fretboard, this guitar truly does play and sound better than the original! The tone is pure jangle and sparkle with good sustain, balanced EQ and fullness in the low end. The five way pickup selector, master volume and dual tone controls allow for a wide range of tones, from bitey twang at the bridge to more mellow, round tones in the neck position. The neck and fretboard are extremely clean, looking virtually unplayed with frets that show no noticeable wear. The headstock sports Kluson style Gotoh tuning machines and the classic Vox headstock shape with "Phamtom" silkscreened over the maple pedhead. On the body, the hardware and vibrato unit in particular are faithful, high quality reproductions of the classic designs by Jennings Musical instruments. Everything from the correct shape of the knobs to the plastic tip on the vibrato arm is faithful to the vintage Vox model! The body, which Phantom Guitarworks typically makes of mahogany is clearly constructed of maple, with some nice grain in the top and gorgeous flame on the opaque black back, which can only be seen through the catseye f hole (photo #8)!
