Okay, I was curious about this and am posting this both here and in the Jerry Tone section. I'm curious about Phred instruments. I can't afford any big priced guitars - no Alembics, no Moriarty's for me, etc. The PHRED price range seemed too good to be true, and it's exactly what I'm able to spend on guitars (if I finish saving up, the other cost being patience). I figured here would be a better place to post both questions - the first is, how is it for a Jerry guitar replica - only one layer of wood (plus a veneer on the wolph), and I'm not sure how the preamp is. I've seen one or two reviews on the 'tube, If anyone could shed light on that that would be great.
Second question - how versatile are they? I play a fair variety (of blues and Allman Brothers in addition to the obvious), and that amount of money spend on a guitar good for only one thing for me would be a bad choice. I need it to be fairly versatile - I know Alembics can be, because I saw that review by Phil X on YouTube, playing things he shouldn't on a Tribute. I don't play Black Sabbath or metal or anything like that, it's way too heavy for me, but I saw him briefly making it sound like a strat - SRV/Steve Miller tone to be precise. Is this possible on the PHRED ones? I don't see why not, but I would like verification before I go and devote myself to the cause of a wolph or liger.
Also... as a new Deadhead, is it fine for me to prefer the Wolf replica to the Tiger replica?
I just think it looks cooler, and a little less bulky.
