(pictures needed!)


With its single pickup, modest vintage style bridge and no tone knob, the X125 is certainly the humblest of the Phoenix/Spectrum family, released at a time when rock and metal players began to favor a single bridge pickup and no tone control, relying entirely on amp and effects for tone shaping.

With its single humbucker and economy bridge, the X110 is the humblest of the Phoenixes, but behind the minimalist appearance lies a deceptively versatile sleeper. The MMK45 pickup offers much more tonal range via the tone knob than most guitars, and the coil tap feature allows an even greater variety of sounds.


In 1985 another single-pickup model with the same body was introduced, the X125, which had only a single volume knob, no tone knob. (by 1985 the name Electra had been replaced by Westone)
