Are Jerry's Guitars in Cleveland?

Postby Woody » Tue Mar 29, 2011 2:20 pm

Are any of the D.Irwin guitars still at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland? I'm trying to get some measurements, and may need to take a little road trip.

Rosebud and Wolf Jr. are there. I was there at the end of January.

How do you plan on doing measurements with them in glass cases?

While I think that both methods presented here are excellent ways to get your hands on one of these guitars, and quite possibly in hot pursuit, I'm not looking at measurements, but different angles of the construction details. I've done a full-size drawing of Wolf, scaling everything from different images found on the internet. I could probably save myself a lot of time and guesswork by having a brick handy; just in case.

When I was there years ago...the main lobby was the teacher from the wall tour...and U2's euro cars from ZOO TV....Jerry's guitars were the first show case before actually going in...they had four of them. It was one of those moments when the hair on your neck flutters.....

There is a big thread about this already where some members and builders actually got to measure and check out the guitars.
