Jerry Garcias guitars pictorial... * 2
    #4356422 - 06/30/05 07:31 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Wow this website is really cool and i know you guitar people and all you deadheads will love this site....Ck this shit out
http://www.nii.net/~obie1/deadcd/garcia_guitars.htm

this site has some cool ass info on Jerrys "Wolf Guitar"
http://www.dozin.com/jers/guitars/wolf/wolf.htm
Damn i love Google :heart: :thumbup: :smile: :gd_icon: :yesnod: :darkside:
"He slept with these instruments," said equipment manager Steve Parish, who handled Garcia's guitars for more than 25 years. " You could lose amps. You could break things, and sometimes we did. But I could never look Jerry in the eye and say, 'I don't have your guitar." 

      Jerry had about 25 guitars, but 70% of his time in the spotlight he played just 3, all custom built by the same luthier.

His first was a Danelectro (age 15). His acoustic in the days with Robert Hunter prior to his switch to the banjo is uncertain.

With the Warlocks in '65 age 23 he played a red Guild Starfire, also used on the 1st Dead albumn.


He played this guitar in `66 also
He changed in `67 to this
1967-Guild and then in the summer he switched to a black 1957 Gibsons Les Pauls with P90's with covers removed and Bigsby tremolo

1968 Summer- switches to another Black Gibson

1969- Gibson SG with a Vox Crybaby wah-wah pedal. Played on Live Dead

1970-  1963 Sunburst Strat with Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard

Martin D-18 and a ZB pedal steel on Wokingman's Dead, American Beauty


By May 1970 he's back on the Gibson SG like below

1971- Sunburst Les Paul

March and April Jer switches to a custom built guitar. Said to be a Alembic project


May Jerry breaks out the Natural 57 Fender Strat that Graham Nash gave him


1972 -Alligator -the Graham Nash guitar
June switches back to Sunburst Strat no American Flag sticker
?56/?57 Sunburst all mapleneck Strat

and switches back to the Strat that Graham Nash gave him, with Alligator sticker.

72- cont. Garcia bought the first guitar Doug Irwin ever made for $850 (known as 001) and ordered another one custom-made.

By this point, his silverface Fender Twin amp was already a central part of his sound. He continued to use the preamp from the Fender amp through 1993. From the late '70's to about 1993 he didn't use the power amp & speakers of the Fender, instead using three JBL D120/E120 speakers in a vertical box powered by a McIntosh solid state amp (note that this probably made the power amp Class A, which is not the Class AB power amp that the Fender normally has). It was miked with a Sennheiser 421 mic.

1973- Jerry continues using Alligator

    In May '73 he received the his first custom Doug Irwin (Sonoma, CA)--the "Wolf" he paid $1,500. (Garcia gave Irwin's 001 to original Dead road crew member Ramrod. Garcia gave away a lot of guitars.) 
- Description: 25.5 in maple neck, 24 fret ebony fingerboard, blonde Western "quilted" maple body with at purpleheart (amaranth) core. Guts like a Strat with
an Alembic Stratoblaster installed.

1975- Travis Beam TB 1000A

Jerry, "I don't like any guitars that are available. I'm trying to have a guitar built." Hence, the Travis Bean. He laughed upon first seeing it, but quickly changed his mind when he tried the custom aluminum-neck guitar made in San Francisco.

1976- Travis Bean TB500 w/single-coil pickups and fx loop.
10/3/76 last Boogie Mark I show; 10/9/76 first appearance of dual Twins

Effects- Mu-Tron III +Mu-Tron Octave Divider +MXR analog delay

1977- Travis Beam TB500 get's the Unity Gain Buffer built by John Cutler

77- Fall Jerry get's his modified Wolf back from Doug Irwin. Complete with single coils and effects loop.
      Irwin removes the Wolf sticker and Inlays the Wolf into the guitar. He also removes the Peacock on the headstock and adds his signature Eagle logo.


1979 through 1990- TIGER
August 4th 1979 at The Oakland Auditorium Tiger debuts
       
  "Tiger" (pearl coverplate) Description: Seven years to make, ebony fingerboard on maple neck, an arched cocobola top and back, vermilion neck and body striping, and W. flamed-maple body core. Meticulous scrolled inlay finger position markers and hand-crafted brass hardware; Strat approach, but with one DiMarzio SDS-1 single coil and two DiMarzio Super 2 humbuckers that were easily removed 'cause Jerry thought their ouput weakened after a year or two. Also had Jerry's effects bypass loop (he knew his electronics!), as well as an op-amp buffer/amp to maintain the high end during effects "on". Result: Garcia's favorite guitar for the next ll years & most played.  Jerry strapped this heavy 13 1/2-pound guitar for 11 years.
More Details
Garcia's next guitar arrived in the mail at the Grateful Dead office in 1993. Stephen Cripe, a 39-year-old Florida woodworker who spent years building custom interiors for Caribbean yachts, decided to try his hand at making a guitar. Using a few photos and a well worn "Dead Ahead" video., he knocked off Irwin's design of Tiger with a few flourishes of his own, like carving the body out of a piece of East Indian rosewood recycled from a 19th century Asian opium bed. It had an acoustic piezo pickup built in. Built "totally by feel", the cocobola through-body neck has a recycled Brazilian rosewood fingerboard (note: Jerry's interest in the rain forest) with an unusual accuracy in the higher end allowing him to play where he usually avoided.

" Garcia was amazed when it came around," said band mate Bob Weir, "at the guesswork he had to make -- and got right -- to give that guitar Irwin's look and feel. It was astounding."  Garcia gave the piece to San Francisco repairman Gary Brawer to fix the electronic guts, but it was a miracle guitar.

He pronounced the piece "the guitar I've always been waiting for" and began playing the instrument exclusively. It came to be called Lightning Bolt. Garcia met with Cripe briefly backstage at a Florida concert and commissioned a second guitar for $6,500, known as Top Hat, although Garcia almost never played it. Cripe, whose hobby was making fireworks, died in May 1996 when his work shed blew up. He used an exploding firecracker as the insignia on his guitars' headstocks.

In April of '95 Jerry ordered the backup "Top Hat".

1994- Summer Tour Jerry brings back out Rosebud but in the fall back to Lightning Bolt.

1995- Lightning Bolt was in the shop on the last tour. In his final show at Soldier Field in Chicago on July 9, 1995, Garcia started out playing Rosebud, but midway through the show, the guitar developed problems. Garcia strapped on the tour's spare guitar -- Tiger, out of mothballs for the occasion -- and finished his final concert on his old trusty ax.

This has been fun

Wow you put a lot of time into that. I know some day I want to get a tattoo but I never knew what of. Lately I've been thinking it would be cool to get three different tattoos, all from a different one of his guitars--


The wolf


The tiger


and the dancing skeleton lady.

I don't think it matters that I never saw Jerry. Just hearing him in recordings has had such a huge impact on me so I wouldn't really think twice about permanently altering my skin as a mark of my appreciation.

What would he have to say about that? People seem to put him on some kind of pedestal, but from the scene he's in, it seems like he'd be against that kind of thing.

He'd probably laugh and find it pretty amusing. He was a modest man that felt the burden that is the package deal of becoming a celebrity and living the rock and roll lifestyle. I'd maybe get a tattoo relating to him out of appreciation for the music he played and the amazingly uplifting effects his playing has on me, not because I worship him like a god.

Sorting through this has allowed my seemingly unending appreciation of this music to reach a new threshold. 

Currently bobbin' to all of Good Lovin' from 71'- it is really amazing to be able to piece a picture to the sound to the words I cannot express.  Means a lot, is truly beautiful!

Maybe someone can help out here.  The first time I saw the Dead (coincidentally, the first time I dropped orange sunshine, which was being passed out in the lobby, purportedly courtesy of the band) was at the Fillmore East on their American Beauty tour.  The New Riders opened. Don't recall the date, but it was somewhere between 1969 and 1971 or so.  My clearest memory was of Jerry Garcia playing this little guitar that looked like a non-cutaway Les Paul, and which I later identified as an ES-125 3/4.  Anyone know the exact date of that show, and whether there are any photos or videos of it?  That was one of the concerts that really changed my life, (along with Pink Floyd's first stop on the Meddle tour at Carnegie Hall).

Everyone needs to stop sucking Jerry Garcias dick, Yes he's a good player and he can play some good jams. But as far as guitar players go he's just a drop in the bucket. Jimmy Page, Hendrix, SRV, many others outclass him in every way.

I agree, he did alot of covers and not so many orignals. He was a Jimi Hendrix wannabe
