If you want some good information on Doug Irwin, got to the Modulus Guitars site and click on artists, then click on Bob Weir's thumbnail pic, then click on "letter from the Grateful Dead". You will be surprised at the info on Doug Irwin (builder of Jerry Garcia's guitars) "The Wolf" and "The Tiger". Let me know what you think.

Tooltime Tim
: : Does anyone know who manufactured Jerry Garcia's guitars? (The ones that look like a wolf's head with cropped ears as the cutaways). (Phil Lesh had a bass that looked similar).
: : I know there were a few different ones he used. They all had 3 pickups and his 2-cable output jack set up.
: : If anyone has any information, I would appreciate if they could e-mail it to me.
: : Thanks.

: Actually I just built myself one cause one of the guys that built Jerry's is dead and the other noone ever hears from.

: Steve Cripe built "lightning Bolt" and "Top Hat" for Garcia. He's dead.
: Doug Irwin built the original ones "Rosebud " and " Tiger"

: You can tell which is which by the cover plate that hides Jerry's midi controls.

: And all you who say Garcia was crap FUCK OFF!!
