Hello there everyone I'm thinking about buying a Epiphone Wilsher Phant-o-Matic and was wondering if anyone has played one ? I only found one video on it and that is Epiphone doing a review of it.
I've never played a Phant-O-Matic, but I did play a Wilshire Pro extensively last year. I was considering buying it but decided to opt for an Epi Dot. The Wilshire Pro plays like a dream, it's extremely comfortable and has a thin neck, great for soloing. The pickups are a little weak but still pretty good, you can upgrade the pickups on the Wilshire and put them into a project guitar. However, I've never used the little switch pot thing that seperates the Phant-O-Matic from the Pro. It could be something interesting to use, and the killswitch at the top is always good. I suggest you try it out for yourself and if you like it, go for it.
That's the problem no local stores carry this guitar.
