Mmmmm, I dunno. Poked around on their site. Phil doesn’t seem like a bad guy. I used to watch his channel a bit. He falls into the ‘regular guy with an opinion’ category as opposed to the ‘expert in the field I should listen to’ one. Nothing wrong with that, but often times category A tries to come off like category B and I didn’t get that vibe from him. Glen Fricker, this means you.
Looked at their other associates. I have zero reason to buy this guitar and not something built by Grover Jackson or FMIC Jackson for the same money, both of whom I trust and like already. The price point and market are already very saturated for this product and I see little chance for much success.
Wish them well and hope they sell a million. I wouldn’t buy one, though.

He doesn't look like someone who would play that guitar.
 
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am going to go smash something Hulk style and rail at the harsh downturn the world just took. :horse
 
Why the hate / surprised faces? It's exactly what Phil always says he loves the most, 80s shred guitar.
And the site says it's all made in USA.

That's the first thought I had. But hey, set up a web site, see how many orders you get, start building a few guitars and see how it goes.

Especially with everything going on with the QC, there's no way I'd buy a guitar from a brand new company, and send some company I'd never heard of $1250, without even so much as an endorsement on their website from someone I'd recognize. Not saying that would be enough either, because I'm cautious by nature.

I want to know who's building em. Friedman guitars are basically Grover Jackson guitars so I'd be good with that. Either show me a history, pedigree or expertise. Not 1m youtube hits. I know youtube famous is a thing, but it doesnt mean you can produce a good guitar. It means you can produce attractive videos. I'd sooner watch their movie before buying this guitar.
 
Good luck to them for sure, but i hope they did their homework the market is already saturated, everyone and their uncle is making guitars
80's Shred machine ? Sure but most in this demographic already have their 1 or more 80's axe of mass distortion
so :idk
 
Maybe it's an internal joke between them "Let's see how many we can sell without even telling people WTF it's made of!"
