The Ibanez 2016 BWM1-BS (Bob Weir Signature Limited Model), an exquisite handcrafted reissue of Bob Weir’s ‘Cowboy Fancy’ electric guitar originally delivered in 1976 and played in bands like the ‘Grateful Dead’, ‘Kingfish’, and ‘Bobby and the Midnites’.
When Ibanez guitar designer Jeff Hasselberger met Grateful Dead guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Bob Weir at the Philadelphia Civic Center, “one of those massive airplane-hanger-style joints”, onstage after a show in 1974, they discussed an innovative guitar with adjustable pickups, a larger headstock providing more sustain, and blending a style that highlights superior attention to a classic American instrument aesthetic and an impressive modern technologic array of functions and fine tune abilities complete with ornate mother of pearl inlay and onboard equalization in what Bob referred to as “cowboy fancy”.
I had a cassette copy of a Dead Show from the Felt Forum,Madison Square Garden,N.Y.C. cicra 1971. Mr Weir sang an excellent version of " El Paso " a Marty Robbins classic during this concert! If any body has that same show give a good listen,I think it,s done well!
Bob and John Mayer great show!!on late late shw.
Jerry and the eel, hell the whole under water segments. "What we had was thicker than blood" and "I don't trust pride" are just a few of the highlights of this film for me. I can honestly say I was moved by it and it only made me more anxious for Santa Clara. He's gone, but the vibe still lives.
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.
with Jerry and the eel is priceless.
Touched me deeply. Very happy about Bobs relationship with his birth dad. Have helped others get in contact with thier birth Parents and happy to say it was very possative for both of them.
The Other One: The Long, Strange Trip Of Bob Weir.
Many priceless moments. Sweet, touching, harrowing, sometimes all at once.
I hope not. That would be sacrilege.
Please bless me, Lion of Judah, root of David. Amen.
Think we'll see Jerry in Chicago this July ?
