You have truly created a top notch product!
I got my Ernesto VH this week and have to say it FAR exceeded my expectations. Quite frankly, for $589 it blows my mind - I actually feel like I've taken advantage of you! You have truly created a top notch product and, in my opinion, are undercharging for them. It came packaged as if it were going to be dropped from an airplane and was perfectly setup right out of the box. Action and intonation were perfect, frets smooth and level with no rough edges. Pickups sound great. I cannot thank you enough. It was well worth the wait. I wish you continued success and will likely be ordering a blonde VH in short order.

I am impressed with the stock electronics as it is extremely versatile.
This message is to thank you for my recent purchase of the Ernesto VH Brown! The guitar was received in excellent condition and set up with a very low action, making the instrument a breeze to play. I am impressed with the stock electronics as it is extremely versatile. Even more impressive from my perspective, is the outstanding harmonic qualities this instrument delivers unplugged. This thing is not only a treat to play, but very nice in appearance which has earned me quite a few compliments. I look forward to further doing business in the future.

Keep up the good work!
I received that guitar about a week ago. Just writing you to say that you guys did a great job with her. The actual play of the guitar is like no other, I fell in love with the first jam on it! Keep up the good work, I'll probably pick up one of your Garcia models in the future as well.

These 5 important features can be found in almost every PHRED instruments guitar.


24 frets on PHRED instruments Guitars
24 frets

While most electric guitars have only 22 frets, PHRED instruments guitars give you an extra two frets on the fretboard, providing a full 2 octaves on each string. We believe that 24 frets helps you more easily locate your position when playing above the 12th fret and provide better access to the higher frets when soloing.

 

 Set Neck on PHRED instruments Guitars
Set Neck

A set neck is glued in rather than screwed in to the guitar body.  As a result, a set neck will transfer more of the string vibrations to the guitar body, producing a more warm and resonant tone with more girth and sustain.

 

 3 Humbuckers on PHRED instruments Guitars
3 Humbucker Pickups

While many guitars have just 1 or 2 pickups, we believe that a 3 humbucker setup opens up the pallet to guitar tones you might otherwise never get the chance to play. Almost all of our guitars feature a triple humbucker setup with split-coil switches, however, we also recognize the unique tone of playing with true single coils and so we offer them as well on some of our guitars.

 

 Mini Toggles on PHRED instruments Guitars
Split-coil Toggles
If a guitar has a humbucker pickup, we believe that it should also have split-coil mini-toggle switch. Splitting the coils on a humbucker reveals a single-coil pickup tone, allowing you to get two tones from one pickup at the flick of a switch. Split-coil toggles are found on almost all of our guitars that have humbuckers.



Built-in Pre-amp on PHRED instruments Guitars
Built-in Preamp
Behind the scenes, a built-in preamp (unity gain buffer) maintains and improves the tone of the guitar pickups as the sound travels along the guitar cable to fx pedals and amplifier. All of our guitars that have an On Board Effects Loop (OBEL) also have a built-in preamp.
