I may be talking out of line... but with phreds tigers he had them done overseas, then had a tech in LA bring them up to spec. I played one in the shop and I have to say for the price it's a great deal, and obel jack was even installed (not wired up) but that's great forward thinking. They are no Moriarty's but a great entry level guitar that's not too hard to upgrade. I wish I had a phred option years ago....
I've played mine regularly for two months now and really like it - but I developed some jack issues las week and could not get the guitar to play at all last night at practice (don't know if its jack related or other wiring issue). Disappointing but I had planned to change out a few things anyways so it will go to the shop soon...

Was this guitar one of the models with dual 1/4" outputs?...
Or one with onboard pre-amp and OBEL (possible battery issue?).
It's a Wolph w/ OBEL and preamp. Battery is good. Will open it up tonight to try and get an idea. Had to bend the jack prongs in last week to get a better connection. Hopefully something just as minor.
I received my Wolph this morning...it's actually nicer than I thought it was going to be...and heavier than I expected...It has great action and tonality...it's really a good looking and feeling guitar....I have a few Super D's laying around and will eventually swap out at least the center pup but the ones that are in it don't sound bad at all...gonna throw some heavier gauge strings on her tomorrow and she's good to go..in my opinion, for the price this guitar is a steal
A good friend of mine got all hot and bothered by my purchase of the Moriarty. He ordered one of these the other day. He is an excellent player with a brilliant mind for Jerry stuff. Either I will talk him into posting here, or I will relay his feedback to you.

Adam, Here's a clip of the Wolph I just scored over the weekend. Its not the best audio as its recorded on my iPhone so it helps if you turn it down just a tad. I'm playing through my Shakedown Twin head through a 1x12 loaded with a K-120.
I needed a solid 25.5 inch scale 24 fret practice-backup to my Resurrection and I'm very pleased with the guitar. I got a little carried away with it but that's life.
