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. ”

Me with my absolute hero/Yoda, none other than Dan Erlewine himself.

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. .
