More info

US vintage, original Phoenix model OS15BB with its unique gold tone trim plate and lettering and designed to have some of the look of the old black box model As. This is the original body shape with the sharp pointed swoop on the treble side, later found on the Festival models. This is the 15 chord version with original black bar set.

The finish is black lacquer and shows signs of age with some flaking.

Laminated pin block

The instrument is in very sound condition and has wonderful overtones when in good tuning. The black finish has some flaking and wear but has been touched up. There are light scratches in the back, touched up, often seen when materials are packed under the instrument when in the case. It is not like new but is very nice for its vintage. This model is quite rare, and this first generation USA example is the best of the OS15BB, while the black finish on the Japanese version was more durable.

The case is a black chipboard original in good condition. A good tuning wrench is sold separately.

The instrument is not yet refurbished. It is waiting to be sold, possibly with fine tuners, and perhaps a 21 chord conversion. It would take about a week to schedule, prepare, and ship, depending on the current workload ahead of it, when your order is placed. Call to customize your order (864-868-0698).

There is a set of maple bars for this, if you would like to add that upgrade for $120. However, the original bars that are on there would be refelted and should work well.
