This is one of my hand-made custom-stock solid through-neck body "Eagle Jerry Garcia Tribute guitars" (07/2Eagle). It is constructed as most of my Bolts. You will not find a guitar this caliber below 5k anywhere. The Eagle was Stephen Cripe's new design built specifically for Jerry Garcia. Jerry died before it was completed. I combined both the designs for a whole new effect. I stained the middle of the fingerboard to show you the effect of dark rosewood vs. natural rosewood. I can leave it natural or use the dark-penetrating fingerboard stain for accent. It's up to you.
This one is set up like the T2. This guitar does include the three balanced custom wound humb./single coil setup--with three on/on switches.  It sounds and feels just right. The action is smooth, the  medium neck "C" neck  glides you into the 24th fret with total ease.
The figured hardwoods used are handpicked for tone and figure with no color or stain added to the body. 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. This guitar is brand-new. It includes a new hardshell case. Check the details to the right. Email me with any questions.

I usually put the strap buttons behind the horn and behind the end-butt of the body. I have not drilled the holes as some players prefer them to be at the end/edge of the body. The choice of placement is only available on the butt-end of the body.
