    Rocco,
    I bought a McNaught Phoenix sight unseen 3 1/2 years ago and it immediately became my #1 guitar. After all this time gigging 4-7 nights a week with it, 50 weeks a year I'm still blown away by how good it feels and sounds. Congrats on yours, I'm betting that like me the more you play it, the more you'll love it.

    Absolute madness! The sustain on this thing is unreal! The neck is different than what I am used to, but I am definitely digging it.

    Got some bad lighting so the pic aren't great, but Heere's some porno...The mahogany body has some flame. hard to get on film however...

    Congrats, that is a beauty for sure. Never had the opportunity to play one, but I'm sure it sings!

    Congrats! I own a Phoenix as well (mahognay back/ maple top) I agree that the sustain is just unreal, played both clean and dirty. It's also a very comfortable body shape to play, and balances nicely, despite the way it looks.

    I love the color of yours, and the quilt is beautiful! Enjoy it. It must really sing when played through that Roccaforte rig:cool:

    The color is Hawaian Ice.

    The pictures do not really capture the true color. In most it looks to green. I need to get some outdoor daylight pictures.
