If you leave the body square, it could be an updated Bo Diddley guitar! :lol:

Meeting with the luthier tomorrow and turning over my materials for him to finish the guitar, hopefully by spring.

Forgive me, but I am unfamiliar with the term "Tamayo". What does that mean in this context?

I believe it means "multiple, redundant posts" in the lost language of the Aztecs.

The dude is proud of his work...and rightfully so...it's a beaut...but I knew someone would tag him for the multiple posts...didn't take long.

Welcome to the internet. :-)

The guitar in the photo is indeed beautiful. I did ask a question hoping to learn more. Maybe he'll come back and fill in the details. Or maybe I missed a thread of his build?

Yeah, don't get me wrong, it's a nice looking guitar and clearly a particularly impressive undertaking if he fabricated all the parts, etc. Very cool to show it off here--this is the right place, obviously.

Just sayin' the multiple posts in different threads starts to feel a touch "spammy."

Sorry, Tamayo is my last name. I thought this might be a good place to share my Wolf guitar I made.

Ah! That explains it. Certainly is beautiful. You will not find a group of people more interested in all things Dead than here. It would be nice if you would share some details about how you built it, materials, electronics, etc. I think in terms of looks, the Wolf was always my favorite of Jerry's guitars. Do you do this professionally, or was it a one-time thing you made for yourself, or... ?

Yes it is the Wolf replica I've made. I'm making many more.

So after a long time waiting for my builder to get to my guitar, I just heard yesterday that it has been started and he said it should be done in a month or so. We shall see if that is true or not. I am not worried about it, the builder and his wife just had a baby over the summer and he just finished up a bunch of projects that he had been working on for the past 3 years. So my Wolfish guitar should be here soon.

Steve Kimock contributed to a discussion over at TGP about pickup spacing and dropped this interesting tidbit:

"I had the good fortune to play Wolf all night at a recent gig, and the take away from that gig for me was how unimaginably better the real top shelf shit is from what we're used to down here at street level.
I couldn't even pick up any of my own guitars for about a week after that experience.
They all felt like toys.

So comparing Garcia's Irwin guitars to a three PU Les Paul is for sure, a non-starter. Not even in the same league."
