Most rock musicians play instruments for limited periods,
continually opting to move on to newer, improved models. Jerry Garcia
was very much the exception, playing only a handful of instruments
throughout his three-decade-long career. So identified were his guitars
that his followers called them by name. (Tiger and Wolf were named
for the exquisite mother-of-pearl and ivory inlaid animal images Doug
Irwin created on the guitar bodies.) It has been said that there are
Deadheads who can discern - simply by ear - which instrument Jerry
is using in his many recordings. Wolf was used throughout the early
part of Jerry's career, while Tiger - which took six years to craft
(Jerry had commissioned Doug to create the very finest instrument he
was capable of making) - was used by Jerry in his very final concerts.
In one of several articles that have appeared about Jerry Garcia and
the Doug Irwin guitars in Guitar Player (there have been numerous articles
about this subject in many other popular magazines as well), it was
said about Tiger: "Garcia produced more notes with the Tiger than
any other guitar, using it exclusively for the next 11 years. 'When
I picked up that guitar,' Garcia said 'I'd never felt anything before
- or since - that my hand likes better.'
" Wolf was the first guitar Jerry Garcia commissioned from Doug
Irwin. Once in the musician's hands, Garcia rarely used guitars other
than the creations of Mr. Irwin.
