Description
The Phantom model has a tunneled fifth string. At the fifth fret, the string enters a brass tube that runs inside the neck and ends at the tailpiece. This eliminates the fifth string peg at this part of the neck and allows it to be on the peghead with the other four. The Nechville Musical Products Company is located in Bloomington, Minnesota and is owned and operated by Tom Nechville.
