Scott Walker paid tribute to what was one of Mr Cripe’s most elegant designs. The result is a combination of features that accentuate the unusual wood choices leading to amazing sustain, resonance and tone.
The Phantom electronics:
The Phantoms electronics feature custom Single coil blade pickups by Lollar. A minimalist approach to the controls, yet a unique variety of options. There are two different preamps, and OP amp style Unity Gain Buffer, as well as an FET style Booster, both with on/off switches. This allows the Passive option, as well as a choice of either preamps or both!
