I've got a Phoenix due to arrive on April 27. Initially I had paid for a 2nd hand Curlew and the order went through. But the next day I got an email saying they had sold the Curlew to another buyer. It was a really good price (it may have been underpriced in error), so I was upset. But they promised to send me a Phoenix for the same price. It's hard to find much info from players on the McNeela instruments, so I will post something after it arrives and I've had a chance to put it through its paces. It's been a very long time since I've had an instrument, so I'll be breaking in the instrument along with my muscle memory.
