“The PHRED instruments Wolph gets its inspiration from Doug Irwin's Wolf guitar, one of the iconic guitars played by Jerry Garcia.”

The body features a single-humbucker-humbucker setup mounted in a custom pickup plate, with discrete split coil switches and a 5-way pickup toggle for 12 different tone combinations. Swamp ash body with quilted maple veneer top and back caps. Set maple neck with Irwin-style headstock and 24-fret ebony fretboard with custom inlays (25.5” scale). Also includes on-board effects loop (OBEL) and pre-amp buffer pioneered by Garcia.

Phred does an excellent job producing this tribute at an affordable base price — but to keep the price down, it comes stock with various plastic parts and unbranded pickups and electronics. To really make it shine, this guitar has been custom upgraded with the following:

•Dimarzio humbuckers (Super Distortion II middle and Super Distortion bridge — each with separate coil cut switches)
•Wald Electronics (Waldo) pre-amp “Tiger-Clone Preamp” buffer
•CTS vol (25k) and tone (500k) pots
•CRL 5-way pickup selector switch
•Switchcraft jacks
•Orange Drop caps (0.22)
•upgraded flat-handle mini toggles (coil cuts and OBEL on/off)
•silicon-shielded wiring
•brass pickup plate
•brass nut (compensated)
•aluminum reproduction Lafayette-style knobs
•aluminum switch cover

Great guitar in excellent condition. Has been gigged a handful of times but was a backup and spent more time in case/hanging on wall. Frets are in excellent condition. There are three visible blemishes shown in last pic: (1) scuff at tip of headstock; (2) finish blemish near the nut on low-E side of neck; and (3) micro chip on back adjacent to control cavity cover.

I’m selling because I need to thin the herd. This guitar essentially duplicates functions of a full custom guitar in my collection so hoping another Jerry-phile can give it a good home and more playtime. Weighs in at ~8.3 lbs.

I will also include gig bag and a custom OBEL stereo splitter/junction box necessary to use the OBEL (see photo). Makes clean interface with pedalboard, too.

Shipping to continental US only.
