That would have been the Bean... He didn't get Wolf back till the fall tour, according to Dozin's site and pics I have seen. Got no idea what the pups were.
Seems like I've been here before...

Although not his ' Main' Bean, this one should suffice.............provided you have a few extra bucks kicking around ! :lol:

Yes, the double-chassis Twin>('s Reverb)>MC2300 is the amp. Speakers are most likely K120's, E's came out a couple years later.

FX are Mutron III, Mu Octave Divider, MXR Dist+ (on floor, no switching unit) ... not exactly sure if he was using the Phase 100 and/or the delay yet.

Jerry's TB500's were apparently the only ones ever made with three pickups, rather than the usual two. Plus he added a Stratoblaster-buffered fx loop, his first one, sometime in November/December 1976.

thanks,

do you know if he was using the spring reverb from the fender or an outboard verb?

perhaps it is the PA verb, do you know what reverb, they were using in the sounds system at that time?

There were 2 other 3 p/u TB500's made besides Garcia's. I found this out on the Travis Bean site.

Here's the 2:

:shock:

nice find on those!

another interesting topic on jerry's bean 500's, were the 3 toggles. with the effects loops taking one of the toggles, how do the the other 2 control 3 pickups?

peace,

Yeah, well now that I'm the proud and broke owner of a Travis Bean, I find myself loitering over at that forum a bunch. The database is very cool and useful....

Not sure about the toggles. Good question obviously. The math doesn't add up, right? 2 toggles, 3 pickups.....

Very cool, nice. I just picked up a 1000 Standard and am loving every minute of owning and playing it.

Both were originally owned by TB employees I see. That sunburst 3-pup 500 w/ Imron neck is off the hook!

Here's the Artist that spent summer 2007 at my house. It had Dimarzio pups, that the new owner has since replaced with TB's:

All those Spring '77 shows have this kind of hall verb sound to them. Was it something in their soundboard? I remember seeing some PHISH shows in '91 and '92 where I felt the went really heavy with the verb and I assumed it was an hommage to the '77 Dead era. Or it may have just been the shrooms.

Dick's Picks 3, 5/22/77, between Eyes and Wharf Rat you get a short Jerry space section (which happens to be fucking outstanding) where you can really hear the verb, maybe even a little delay in there as well?
