    Score of the week award goes to my mother! She found this at a yard sale with a case and strap for a grand total of $25. Univox Hi-Flier Phase 3. Body has a few cracks in the finish and looks like it's seen a lot of use. Did a quick setup and cleaning and will need to replace the 3 way because it's a bit wonky. Fun guitar with a super thin body (with plenty of weight) and a great neck. Repaid mom and tipped her with a few baskets of mums for the great find!

    Nice! I grew up learning to play on a Hi Flyer with the P90 style pups, a Gibson G-20 amp and a Big Muff. Fun guitars!

    Sweet!! A Phase 3 Hi-Flyer was my first guitar! I bought it used in 1978 at a yard sale with a really bad practice amp. It was awesome!
    I played one in my first gigging band as well. This "Number 1." My brother-in-law has her now. He strung her lefty. IMG_1976.JPG IMG_1977.JPG
    Man, I loved that guitar. Great feel, great neck and surprisingly awesome pickups; especially for Punk/Alt-Rock!

    Score! Good one mom. In my family it's my dad looking out for cool stuff. He scored me a late 50s Rickenbacher lap steel once.

    Nice !!!!
    I had one like yours. I gave it to a kid who was huge Kurt Cobain fan. ( I think Kurt loved these Univox Axes)

    It's a Univox but a Mosrite Copy. I'm an old Ventures fan and the Ventures endorsed Mosrite in the 60's.
    Cool find and it cleaned up nice! Platefire
