DockStar Koa 2

The PHRED instruments DockStar K2 gets its inspiration from Trey Anastasio's Languedoc guitar. The fully hollow body features a dual humbucker setup, with discrete split coil switches and a 3-way pickup toggle for 8 different tone combinations! Our DockStar K2 is professionally setup with low action and D'Addario 10-46 strings, and the frets are leveled and milled here at our shop in California for a nice smooth and clean feel all around.

The DockStar K2 features Taiwan Koa (Formosan Koa, Acacia Confusa) wood veneers on the top and back of the body.  Taiwan Koa is a cousin of Hawaiian Koa (Acacia Koa), and has a slightly darker and heavier sound than Hawaiian Koa.  As a wood veneer, however, Taiwan Koa's contribution to the DockStar K2 is more visual than as a tone wood.
