I have posted a lot of Phil's Fretted Americana videos here where he demos very old and rare guitars, but I have never actually seen him in a band setting until this new video popped up just now in my subs.

There is some foul language in it in case you are at work.

What guitar is he playing, not to clear on my screen here.

I saw a video quite a while back on another forum where Phil was playing with a band that had a female singer who sang like an angel and looked like a goddess,I forget the name of the band but at that time it was said that it was his regular gig and the spectacular singer was in fact his wife.

Frankly, I am not sure why Phil X isn't a bigger star.

What I like about his old guitar reviews he does is he will fool around with the amps to get a different sound, then all of a sudden he thinks of a song that has that amp type of sound, then starts playing it.
Very energetic guy.

Here is another one that has a lot of different songs within it of Zep and AC/DC.
Again, language starts out bad if you are at work.
