I just received it yesterday and man o man! I'm super surprised! For the $ I was expecting Something playable but never thought I'd be hanging it on the wall proudly next to my other guitars! I really really like this thing. The quality of the woods is way beyond other guitars in its price range. The craftsmanship is right on the $. It plays great right out of the box, so it was obviously setup prior to shipping. The pickups surprisingly sound damn good, and the pots and switch all operate cleanly and quietly. Let me tell you, I will be buying another if not multiple other Phred Instrument guitars, and definitely will be recommending them to my students. I can't believe that this thing is 4 - 7 times less expensive than the other guitars I have on my wall!!

I've bought far more expensive guitars that pale in comparison.
I've had my PH One for just two days now and I am blown away! I've bought far more expensive guitars that pale in comparison. The only minor thing is that the pickups need adjusted a bit, but that's no biggie and I've had to do a hell of a lot more to set up pretty much every other guitar I've ever purchased. Speaking of which, the set-up done before shipping was very well done. I've made a few little tweaks, but it pretty much came ready to rock! I'm a huge Strat fan who was looking for something with a bit more growl to it. So the split coils are basically my dream come true!
I will definitely be buying here again in the future. Thank you very much for doing such a great job!
