Jerry's guitars....

Wow, no post's here in jerryland. I guess I'll have to pop the cherry...

I have a question. But first a little background.

While I listening to gd 1977/05/03 - Tuesday with a smokin might as well as my backdrop Im astounished on how Jerry's Travis Bean guitar sounds, it's pretty good!!

This got me thinking, about, IMHO, jerry best guitar, Wolf! Wolf replaced Jerry's Travis Bean in Sept '77

The fall of '77 was the dead's best of the year with wolf sounding like no other. What a difference in tone and style!!!

Travis B sounds really nice in 05-03 (as I have Sugaree ripping in the background) but 11-04 is on another planet. Same year, very different shows as it relates to Jerry's guitars(s)

Wolf was the diamond in the rough. After it's 2nd commeth and it's new Dimarzio pick ups there was no stopping her, hence a solid year 1978!! My personal fav year. It's a Wonder why Jerry retired her early??

Another thing I like about wolf was the color and the pattern of the wood. Dried purpleheart makes for amazing and unique characteristics with a touch of elegance.

Anybody else have a favourite Jerry guitar?? I guess it's some food for thoughts. Let's here 'em folks Lossless
