Recaster #26 Mangkorn Tong

Golden Dragon Phin

The Phin is a traditional Isarn (Thai/Lao) instrument and is used in a form of music known as 'Mor Lam'. If you haven't heard it, it's kind of like surf instrumentals with no end, or Seasick Steve on acid. 

These instruments are not known for their finesse, but at Recaster, we are! Without losing any of the left-field charm, this instrument has been brought closer to the western expectations, whilst maintaining it's the eastern authenticity. We've given it the gold-top treatment in nitro so it will age beautifully, complete re-fretted it with proper frets and put decent strings on so they no longer feel like ancient cheese wire. 


What do you buy the man with every guitar under the sun? The Golden Dragon Phin!
