    I have a craptastic bass that I see is made out of - Phoenix wood.
    :) Now that's a new one to me.

    What's Phoenix? Is it simply code for - whatever crap we can get at the time? :)

    Is there Any chance I could strip a craptastic Phoenix body and tru-oil it?

    Phoenix wood comes from a tree that fell, but has risen as a bass guitar :bassist:
