This is one of my hand-made custom-stock solid through-neck body "Lightning Bolt Jerry Garcia Tribute guitars" (B3-09) .Set up similar to Cripe's original.
The figured hardwoods used are handpicked for tone and figure (quilted Imbuia) with no color or stain added. I used a similar method of construction as the late Cripe except for the volute, which is hand carved. Cripe glued the entire headstock to the neck. Mine is one piece. It includes a new hardshell case. Check the details to the right. Email me with any questions.

Cocobolo lightning bolt cap is included.

NOTE: I have not drilled the strap button holes, as some players prefer them to be at the end/edge of the body and others as the original on the horn end and butt. I will drill those upon purchase. I have not dressed the fingerboard. Again, this will be done after purchase as some players prefer flat or round crowning on the frets and a dark penetrating stain on the rosewood fingerboard.

U.S. insured shipping is $ 50.00 U.S. Please contact me for international shipping rates.
