Good question, I looked through a bunch of photos, seems like I have seen it in Jerry's hands, but could not find one. I know Ive seen Phil with a headless bass a number of times, so that may be what I am recalling. Does anybody have a year-time frame of when Wolf Jr. came to be?

Jerry never used Wolf Jr. in performance, afaik. He is last known to have performed on Wolf "Sr." at the February 93 Oakland run, when one of his heroes Ornette Coleman sat in.

Phil played a headless Modulus bass with the GD circa 1987-88. It had a metallic grey checkerboard finish. He may have since used other headless basses in PLF, but I haven't paid attention since about 2003.
