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. ”

Brand new 2021 Iris DE-11 Dan Erlewine signature model handmade in Burlington, Vermont. Serial #169. Dan’s first signature guitar, based on his beloved 1937 Kalamazoo KG-11, features a 1930s V-shaped neck, Rickard rear-mount banjo tuning machines, an Adirondack spruce top, a satin finish, as well as Honduran mahogany back, sides, and neck. Most intriguing, its neck extends past the nut before transitioning into the ears of the peghead, and threaded brass inserts in the fingerboard accept screw-down capos. “It’s the most musical new guitar I’ve ever owned,” says Erlewine. Satin finish with no pore filling. Bolt on Mortise and Tenon neck joint. Katalox fretboard/bridge. Adirondack spruce braces. Bone nut/saddle. Tiger stripe pickguard. Built in Capo System comes with 3 capos, 2 thumb screws, 4 torx screws, and Torx Screw Installer. 4.0” deep at end pin. TKL Hardshell case.

Here’s a fun throwback from November of 2002. This was taken after my first one-on-one weekend workshop with Dan. Little did I know at the time, my career path would change within the following year and I’d be moving to Athens. Hard to believe this was almost 19 years ago! #guitarrepair #guitarshop #tbt #stratocaster #stadiumguitar #danerlewine #stewmac #luthier #luthiery ...

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.

Three decades later, Dan monsterfret and Bryan have re-teamed to reproduce Albert King’s iconic V, “Lucy”. To ensure these instruments not only look and feel the same, Dan used the last of his original Lucy wood to build one for joebonamassa and myself. Very happy to be a part of Dan and Alberts legacy.
