The original Univox Hi-Flier Phase 4 model was introduced in 1977. It was the last in the Hi-Flier series that began in 1968. The new Eastwood Hi-Flyer Phase 4 is a dead-on replica of the original slim-line body and neck profile. It is fitted with new Eastwood Phase 4 humbuckers, has a 3-way switch with single volume and tone controls and a fully adjustable wraparound bridge. This was one of the few Hi-Flyer models that had a maple fretboard, and is one of the rarest of the vintage UNIVOX models.
