 Post subject: Phoenix (83)
PostPosted: Sat Apr 17, 2004 9:15 pm 
I have a Phoenix guitar that my folks purchased for me back in the early 80's (83 I believe). It is a beautiful metalic dark maroon with a a black neck. I'll have to look up the exact model.

After they purchased it for me like a lot of teenagers...I lost interest.

I have managed to keep this over the years and since I never really played it it is like brand new (or should I say perfect). There are no scratches or nicks or anything.

I have a nice hard case for it as well....and a small amp.

Can anyone tell me what this might be worth and where is the best place to sell it (EBAY, local add, guitar shop).

Thanks....I appreciate it.

That sounds like the X-185 model. A guy was selling on on eBay a few months ago; you can still see his GREAT description and tech info here: ... 2367934932

Looks like he got a little over $300 for it. I'm not really into Strat-type guitars, but if I were going in that direction I'd probably start with the X-185. It sounds like a fantastic guitar!

Good luck,
