“I am a huge fan of the Phred Instruments Dockstar. It has helped me to get some sounds that I’ve been hearing for decades but never found in the guitars I had before. The best thing about it is that I genuinely enjoy playing it. It is so much fun! Thank you Freddy for a great looking, sounding and playing guitar at such an affordable price.”
