Looks like their is some corrosive patina on the brass plate around the pickups. kind of sad.
Also kind of funny for Tiger to not be anywhere close to nailing a Jerry tone.
Ha! You should have seen it before
Irwin refinished it in 1990-ish! Jerry's sweat was highly corrosive and really ate up the metal- ever see the pic of the original Tiger bridge? Looks like it was soaked in acid. What you're seeing is "Jerry patina"- what the Catholics would call a "second-class relic".
If you think it doesn't sound like Jerry there, try to find the short vid of Irsay playing Tiger
It didn't last long on the web before it disappeared.
