Not to derail the thread, but....Is that Jerry Garcia's guitar on the wall behind #1?I know there are a few threads about this exhibit but figured I’d post my shots here...
What can I say except that it was of course an incredible experience to see them in real life, certainly something I never thought I’d do. The black Custom was tucked away on a wall but #1 was right smack in the middle of the room. It is of course hard to see behind plastic but the neck didn’t seem as insanely thin as it is rumored to be, but I wouldn’t be shocked if the actual profile is what makes it so unique. Other than that it’s had a refret and clearly been well used, the finish has really faded and the back almost looked rounded off due to wear.The grain of the top half of the maple cap was very interesting and when I was sure this was the real deal and not a replica.
Enough rambling, onto pics
