1 echoplex 9 months ago I’d been looking for a Panther as a more ‘comfortable’ stage/tour alternative to my beloved Phoenix and finally found and picked one up last Friday. Fair price, great condition. Overall bonding well with it- there’s something special for me about the Phoenix, but the Panther definitely is easier to play, and it will be a lot easier to see the fretboard side-markers on a dark stage. The neck pickup is getting swapped out for a Magna’tron (that’s what the Phx has, and I’m trying to get close to the sound I get from that guitar). I thought I’d probably get a P’tron+ for the bridge (like the Phx) or try the Classic+ I have lying around, but after a few hours rehearsing today through my Valvetech I’m starting to like the stock bridge Filter. Anyway, its a pretty great guitar. Now I just need a Penguin to round out the ‘P-animals’ stable!
