Fox Guitars are crafted by hand in Brazil using exotic Brazilian woods from sustainable sources. The model range named Amazona presently consists of four models. These are the V3 Clássico Deluxe nylon strung six string, the V3 Acústico Deluxe steel strung six string, the V2 / V3 Acústico Twelve String Deluxe and the B2 / B3 Acústico Five String Bass Deluxe. Other exciting models are in the pipeline.
What sets these guitars apart is the concepts of solid bodied, acoustic amplified performance combined with high handcrafted build quality and the use of exotic Brazilian woods. There are no veneers in these instruments. Even the tops are solid wood. They are totally handcrafted with not an automated machine in sight. These really are handcrafted boutique guitars, at a mass produced price.
The concept is aimed at musicians who required acoustic amplified properties for stage use without the problems of feedback.
Many people have compared the Fox B2 Amazona 5 String Bass and Fox Star Bass Custom to custom US models at two or three times the price.
