Phred Liger- used (jerry garcia tiger inspired)- $450.00

 

 

 

The PHRED instruments Liger gets its inspiration from Doug Irwin’s Tiger guitar, one of the iconic guitars played by Jerry Garcia. The body features a triple humbucker setup mounted in a custom pickup plate, with discrete split coil switches and a 5-way pickup toggle for 14 different tone combinations!

Liger 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.

Body
The contoured body features a triple humbucker setup mounted in a custom pickup plate, with discrete split coil switches and a 5-way pickup toggle for 14 different tone combinations! There is one master volume and 2 tone knobs, allowing you to dial in tone that goes from dark and muddy to crisp and bright. There are two 1/4″ output jacks on the top of the body. One of them is a standard guitar output to plug in a standard guitar cable. The other output is used for the built-in on board effects loop (OBEL), allowing you to gain further control of the sound coming from your effects pedals. Scroll down below to read up on the benefits of having an OBEL equipped guitar. On the back of the guitar, there is a large and accessible electronics cavity and a 9V battery box that powers the internal built-in preamp. The built-in pre-amp boosts the signal a small amount and lowers the output resistance so that the signal is better preserved along the guitar cable to your amp. We offer an optional custom hard shell case to go with the Liger guitar.

Neck
The maple core neck is attached to the body using very strong wood glue. The back of the neck contour is a C-shape that feels somewhere in between a strat and an LP neck, not too thin, and not too chunky either. The 2-octave ebony fingerboard has 24 medium jumbo frets which are leveled and milled here at our shop in California for a nice smooth feel along the edge of the fretboard. The fretboard features a 12 degree radius which is perfect for soloing and playing chords up and down the fretboard. Topping off the fretboard are custom pearloid inlays which are inspired by Doug Irwin’s Tiger guitar fingerboard inlays. At the top of the neck, you’ll find a bone nut for good sustain, and white binding all around the fingerboard for a clean look and feel. The tilt-back 3+3 headstock shape features colorful pearloid binding. Under the fretboard is the adjustable double-expanding truss rod, keeping the neck stable in any climate.
