When Jerry switched back to Wolf in mid to late ‘77, it had three single coils in it. Not the two humbuckers with one single coil. I stand corrected. I'd have bet that when Wolf came back for late 77 until Tiger, it had coil-tapped humbuckers. Good thing I don't gamble. From Edgar Lee Masters' Spoo...

Ok, I'll take a stab. I'm going off the top of my head so be gentle if I have my facts wrong.... As someone mentioned the biggest thing that sets these guitars apart is the aluminum neck - an the neck is different than a kramer or one of the modern remakes, because the pickups and bridge are mounted...

... October 9-10, 1976. As I recall, The Who had opened for the Dead in England previously, so the Dead were returning the favor. And Jerry played a Travis Bean that day. Bill, tgo Lol, breakfast in bed with the Grateful Dead at the Us Festival in '82. They came on at 9:00 am to open one of the days. ...

I read Jerry developed a permanent curvature of the spine from playing heavy guitars.

That makes sense; no one can follow the Dead! Everyone's so helpful here.... Which reminds me of one of if not the funniest Dead stage banter I heard; I guarantee people have hear it - I think it's 2.18.71 and Pigpen intoxicatedly tears into an audience member or maybe "people in the management...

In late 76 he switched to the TB500, which was the single-coil version. Not sure of last Dead show he played it, but Wolf was back by mid-Autumn 77, this time suped up with two coil-tapped humbuckers in middle and bridge, along with Unity Gain Buffer circuit. 9/3/77 Englishtown was the last TB500 s...

The story goes Jerry laughed when he saw a TB in a guitar store window but fell in love with the sustain. Playing a Travis Bean reminded me of playing "a tuning fork" if you get my metaphor. I mean the notes rang like a bell. You can hear it in Jerry's playing. I would ...
