that Wolf sounds absolutely killer, and GREAT playing brother!! Wish I lived closer to Colorado....would love to jam with you! Our "Jerry" has always had a MAJOR volume issue. When we played out he usually wasn't even on the board because he was so freaking loud

After a painfully long (but not entirely unexpected) wait, I received a shiny new Phiga Tiger from Phil a few days ago.

There's a lot of discussion on this board comparing the various Garcia clones available out there, but no actual comparisons that I've found. Sooo, I thought it would be cool (and useful) to shoot two videos of a Moriarty Wolf and Phiga Tiger playing over the same jam track, through the same rig, by the same person (me), and then splicing them together, and moving back and forth between the two, as different effects are used.

Problem is, I have no idea how to edit video like that! :oops: Is anybody aware of a free video editing software that allows you to do that sort of thing with the ease that say, Audacity audio softeware does?

If not, I can just post some pics and a separate video that could be compared to the Moriarty video I posted here a few months ago.

Sorry folks, no fancy video montage, mostly because while there are obvious tonal differences between these three, I realized my cheap digital camera isn't up to the task of capturing them. :? Still, this vid offers some comparison.





Thanks to Seth at GratefulGuitarLessons.com for the jam track!

The tone is there on both for sure, but what I want to know is which one is more playable? All of these guitars (hell, even cheap knockoffs can get the tone) sound great. I am most interested in ho they feel. Is the action able to be adjusted as low as you want? Is there fret buzz all over? Playability.

All's well that sounds well.

I cannot say that either one is "more playable" than the other. Both necks are virtually identical (less than 1/64" difference) in terms of thickness and width, but each has a decidedly different feel. The Tiger has fatter frets, a larger radius to the fretboard (feels flatter), and a smaller radius on the back (meaning, as I conceive it, that the neck reaches its full thickness closer to the edge of the neck, or further from the center of the neck, as compared to the Wolf). So overall, the Tiger has a meatier feel to it compared to the Wolf. My initial reaction when switching from one to the other is: "this is so fat feeling" or "this is so delicate feeling." But after a few seconds of acclimating, they both feel great. If you are someone who has a strong preference for a lighter or heavier feel, then you would almost certainly prefer one over the other, but I don't.

Bottom line: I'd be quite surprised if anybody sat down with one of these guitars and had the slightest reservation about either one in terms of playability. Some players might prefer the feel of one over the other, but I don't see that as being a reflection of the instruments' quality or even their "playability," strictly speaking.

Here's a clip of my recectly aquired ao Wolf. I posted this clip in another thread as well, so apologies to those who've already seen it. My studio is bright even with auralex on the walls, and that comes through with the crappy camera I used. Absolutely love this guitar.
Super2 middle split, speaker is a K120.
