Tampa, FL (January 22, 2014) -- Innovation and a number of new models keys Electra’s 2014 Guitar and Bass Lineup. The all-new Invicta, Phoenix, and Talon Series will be available in February, and join the popular Omega and Omega Prime guitars introduced last year.

Invicta Series
The design aesthetics of the Electra Omega – belly cut and sculpted heel – are carried over to the body of the Invicta, which pays homage to a classic, original Electra design. The body is made from Swamp Ash topped with Quilt Maple and bound in multi-layer tortoise binding which gives it a unique look. The Invicta will also sport a 5-Way Rotary Pickup Selector. In concert with its 2 volume knobs it provides 7 pick-up combinations. It will initially be available in stunning Quilted Maple and Trans Ruby finishes at an estimated street price of $899.

Talon Series The Electra Talon’s aggressive double-cutaway design is a no-compromise metal machine. Available with either an all mahogany body or mahogany body with a quilt maple top, this is where style, design, substance and playability come together in one package. The Talon has a fast D Shape Neck, Real Ebony Fretboard, Real Mother of Pearl Talon Inlays and Floyd Rose Tremolo. The Talon will be available in a Gloss Black finish as well as Electra’s original Phantom Quilt. Street price is an estimated $899.

Phoenix Series Two guitars –Phoenix H and S – and one bass guitar make up the most recent Phoenix group of products. Based on the original Electra Phoenix X110 guitar, the Phoenix H has been updated to meet the needs of today’s rock guitarist. Featuring a Floyd Rose tremolo and a newly designed, Super MagnaFlux high output passive humbucking pickup, the Phoenix H is designed for the aggressive player. The Phoenix H will initially be available in Trans Black and Trans Orange finishes both with Maple Fretboards. The Phoenix H will carry an estimated street price of $829

The Phoenix S has an identical design as the H but utilizes three specially designed single coil pickups fed into a switching system that allows any and all combinations of the 3 pickups. Electra new Analog TBK allows players to mix in either the neck or bridge pickup without affecting the 5-way selection. Combined with MagnaFlux SC pick-ups, this will give players additional tones - neck+bridge, or all 3 pickups - with a 3 single-coil pickup config. The Phoenix S will be available in a Gloss Natural and Tri-Burst for an estimated street price of $599.

Rounding out the Electra’s Phoenix line is the new Phoenix bass. It retains much of the forward thinking design ideas of the original bass while updating the design and electronics to meet the needs for the modern bass player. Moving the bass side horn out to the 12th fret and adding generous belly, forearm and treble side horn contours makes this bass comfortable to play while retaining its aggressive look. The Phoenix Bass is also Electra’s first collaboration with EMG and includes two specially designed EMG HZ-P pickups feeding a B/T circuit and 5-way rotary switch providing players a slew of varying tones. The Phoenix Bass will be available in a Swamp Ash body with Natural finish and Maple fretboard, as well as an Alder body with Gloss Black finish and Ebony fretboard. The Phoenix bass will start at an estimated $999.

Recreating the preamp in Silvertone’ssignature ’60s amp results in a surprisingly multifaceted overdrive.

Great drive sounds, ranging from characterful boost to low-gain overdrive. Unique personality. Powerful, flexible EQ.

Arguably a bit expensive for what it does.

Once harvested for peanuts at garage sales and pawn shops—or free for lucky dumpster divers—the Silvertone Model 1484 Twin Twelve amplifier of 1963-’67 graduated to legend status over the past couple decades. Like a lot of ’60s gear with department store catalog origins, Silvertone amps and guitars provided great bang for the buck when they were new. But perhaps no Silvertone product—apart from the company’s Danelectro-built guitars—is as revered as the Twin Twelve. Mudhoney’s Mark Arm and Steve Turner discovered their charms early in their career, and Twin Twelves and their siblings remained backline fixtures for punks, garage rockers, and indie kids. But once the likes of Jack White and Dan Auerbach got on board, the market heated up considerably.
