PHRED Instruments are based in Los Angeles but the guitars are manufactured in Asia. The PHRED name is a combination of the bands Phish and Grateful Dead and they builds guitars inspired by rarities like Jerry Garcia’s “Tiger” and Trey Anastasio’s custom Languedoc G2, which is the primary influence on the DockStar.

For the beginning of 2016, DockStar Koa is only built to order.
