I'd never heard of Phoenix guitars before. Clearly they were part of the Japanese invasion of the 1980s.
This Phoenix Phantom looks to be a solid example of the quality that was going into all the made in Japan guitars of the time. If you can get past the lack of a headstock you could possibly have a great vintage bass at a decent price. The single pickup is coil tapped for single or humbucker tones and the black on black colour scheme gives it an air of class.
Currently $250 Canadian.
Happy New Year!
