Werewolf Pat brings you awesome guitars, restoration projects, DIY tips and tricks and much more!

Phil X is a talented guitarist and very cool guy! I contacted him after watching his demo videos for Fretted Americana, a Los Angeles based shop specializing in rare vintage instruments. Phil goes there once every few weeks to demo a handful of instruments… Other than that Phil is a highly respected session musician working with pretty much all famous musicians in the Los Angeles area… He also has his own band “The Drills” and writes music for TV, radio etc… Phil kindly accepted my request for interview and invited me over to his house in Los Angeles… We spoke about his work, his plans and the Evil Robot, an amplifier modeled after the Tone Master, an amp that a lot of people are crazy for! At the end of the interview, I challenged Phil to play one of my left handed Stratocasters upside down! Not an easy thing to do when you never tried! Phil was able to figure it out in a few minutes and he played the chords almost perfectly! Phil is the man! Since YouTube only accepts 15 minute videos and the interview is well over 30 minutes, I had to split it in 3 segments… Check it out and send your comments!
