I read an on line review ( Harmony ?) where a fellow said the guitar was unplayable and hung on his wall.Others were glowing though.
He has built many more guitars since that thread has started.More experience ...
Gonna have Milo from here build me something ...

Any custom builder requires a down payment.
Too bad hes so far away in Brownsville Texas 'cause I would like to see if his gits are as good as they look ...

There was a clip or something a couple of months back where someone said Resurrection was building a Wolf.

I talked to him last year about some other stuff and other guitars - but based on prices of some of his other work my guess is between 4 - 6k depending on options.

Hey Kidz...
I had to have one of Phils guitars sooo...I ordered one.
I had no problem with e-mail contact...and only one time had to wait more then a few hours for a reply.
I sent the Down Payment of $2225 for a T3 with the FX Loop/Bypass about two weeks ago.
He said that his current batch is almost complete and I should have the guitar soon.
He has added both Rosebud and Tiger inlay panels as well as personalizing the bottom brass fret for me.
I will post a replay to this to let everyone know how it went.

I took delivery of a Phiga Tiger about two weeks ago. It is a very sweet guitar, he does a great job on these guitars and they play spectacular. Should be recieving my SMS soon, just got a a 2X10 JBL K-110's in a Hard Truckers cabinet from Vic....need an amp and I should be getting my rig together. This board has been a huge help.
