Jerry Garcia Caricature

$95.00$495.00

Circa 1977, age 35, co-founder and front man for the San Francisco rock band The Grateful Dead.
Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, psychedelia, experimental music, modal jazz, country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, and space rock, for live performances of lengthy instrumental jams, and for their devoted fan base, known as “Deadheads”.
Luthier Doug Irwin customized this legendary guitar for Garcia, known as “The Wolf”. It was made from purple-heart and curly maple with an ebony fingerboard and twenty-four frets. A bloodthirsty cartoon wolf sticker Jerry placed below the tailpiece served to name the guitar and was later inlaid in the body by Irwin.
After years of struggling with longstanding heroin and cocaine addictions, Garcia was staying in a California drug rehabilitation facility when he died of a heart attack in August 9, 1995 at the age of 53.
Jerry Garcia’s famous Wolf guitar sold at auction for over $1.9 million Wednesday, May 31st 2017.
