This is a modern copy of the old Italian-made Vox Phantom VI of the 1960s. It was made by a fellow in Oregon named Jack Charles, who owns the patents to the old Vox radical body shapes and produces limited numbers of them under the name Phantom Guitar Works. I have owned several original Vox guitars over the years, and in all honesty, Jack Charles makes these guitars better than Vox ever did, by a wide margin.

Its body shape has been variously described as a "lozenge" or "coffin", and only god knows what originally inspired this unusual shape. Jacks standard model has a rosewood fretboard, but he did produce a few of these with a maple fretboard in a high gloss finish, which is what you see here.

PGWs Phantom VI sounds like nothing else out there. It has a mahogany body (like most Gibsons, but unlike Fenders), and yet it has Strat-style electronics and a maple neck (unlike any Gibsons). The nut on this guitar is a space age device with graphite fiber rollers instead of the usual piece of notched bone or plastic. The electronics in this guitar are completely shielded, unlike the old Vox guitars, which tended to pick up any nearby police band and CB transmissions. I got this as a special order from Phantom Guitar Works. It was around $1000 with the case, and worth every penny.
