For over 10 years Jerry Garcia coaxed some sweet sounds from this guitar, known as Tiger. This was his primary guitar from 1979 through 1990, both with the Jerry Garcia Band as well as with his day job band, the Grateful Dead. The hours of musical pleasure he provided for thousands of people with Tiger created memories that will be treasured forever.
In honor of Jerry’s birthday, below are a few photos, first of the guitar alone, and then as played by the master. Technical details about the guitar, as well as more photos, can be seen here: Tiger guitar info.
