He doesn't look like someone who would play that guitar.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.
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 does look like someone that can get MS Word to work on an iPad though. I do think some of his criticisms have been a little harsh in the past but I guess we all have different tolerances for what’s acceptable in a new product purchase.He doesn't look like someone who would play that guitar.
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.The price point and market are already very saturated for this product
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.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.
