Dan Erlewine | Jerry Garcia: Stratishcaster

Legend Jerry Garcia commisioned this quirky “Stratishcaster” made out of the same black wallnut as Albert King’s Lucy.
“In 1971, Jerry commissioned me to make this strat-style guitar from my Albert King stash of black walnut. He liked the numeral inlays that I had installed in one of my own guitars so that I’d never forget what fret I was at. It was a joke, but he liked it. ”

Check this out! You know how conventional helping hands products either have arms that are too short to allow you to work inside a control cavity, or they're too puny to hold all your parts securely?
.
Our shop supervisor, Dan Brooks came up with a great idea for a new tool that fixes all these problems. We call it the Solder Monster. It has 4 super-strong, super-long posable arms that'll reach right down into your control cavity and hold all your parts exactly where you need them. And it even attaches to your shop vac to keep all those poisonous fumes out of your face while you're working.
.
And as icing on the cake it has lots of storage room for wire, solder and your favorite tools.
.
Erick just made a new video about it. You should check it out on our YouTube channel.

The great thing about hanging out with Dan is you never know what he is going to haul out of a dusty case to show off.
.
After shooting another Trade Secrets video (By the way, are you subscribed to our YouTube channel?) He shows off not 1 but 2 mid 50's vintage Gibson Les Pauls. 🤯 .
He also shows a tip for how to get these old guitars to play in tune better.

So here's something fun...
.
The crew at the shop is working hard on getting a new tool ready to launch soon. Any guesses what this is?
.
You might not know this, but StewMac makes, modifies or assembles about 70% of everything we sell. Even "common" items you see in other places are often modified by us (or specifically for us).
.
Like you, we live in our shops too and we're constantly coming up with ideas to help make the work (and the experience) better. .

Today is TRADE SECRET DAY, which is always a treat. (Are you subscribed to our YouTube channel? If not, you should be!)
.
This week we're changing things up a bit.  We're taking you backstage to a ukulele building camp Mamie Minch, from brooklynlutherie, hosted in July for a group of middle school girls in the NYC area.
.
It's super inspiring and the girls all did a great job on building their first instruments.
.
Check it out. It's extremely cool.  The future of our craft looks to be in good hands. We can't wait to see what they build next. 😀
