Phase Three

Around 1974, the Hi-Flier was updated with a new finish option (Natural), and twin humbuckers replacing the single coil P-90 type pickups. These pickups were already in production for the Ripper (Strat copy) and Gimme (Les Paul style). They are extremely high output pickups, with a distinctive open-top cover and three-screw mounting.

Though these humbuckers strayed significantly from the Mosrite design the guitar was based on, their unique tone and high output have made them a sought after Phase of the Hi Flier. Most notably this was Kurt Cobain’s guitar of choice in the early Nirvana days.

EXERT FROM KURT COBAIN INTERVIEW:
…”I really like Univoxes, and that’s what I play all the time. But they are hard to find because they are Mosrite copies that were made in the late 60 and the early 70s. You just have to find them by chance in pawn shops, and I’m just gonna keep breaking them every time I get one. Luckily, Matt brought me another one from Seattle that my girlfriend bought for me, and I made sure I had the new one in my hands before I break this one.”
**************************************

There are a few dings in the finish here and there but overall its in great shape for its age. The hardware is pretty clean and it has been recently set up and plays and sounds great with no issues! It is missing the trem bar and comes with a Fender gig bag.
