I was thinking about some of the things Thomas Lieber has posted here about "The Garcia" being envisioned as something that could go beyond a one-off custom for our favorite guitarist. This is certainly in line with that thinking. I don't think Jerry or Doug would get bent by seeing some guy playing some harder rock on this awesome guitar. I don't think Les Paul thought the guitar with his name on it was only for a certain style of playing.
There were some serious innovations in the Tiger and Wolf. The aesthetic of the shape of the Tiger is something for the ages - I've had non-head friends say that it looks like a heavy-metal guitar and there is something to that I think. Second, the electronics, especially the OBEL is something that would be a pretty valuable asset to a lot of stage players and it would be cool to see that break out beyond our group.
Finally, the dude playing - he's got some credentials and seems like a good player albeit not in our style but good nonetheless. I wouldn't walk around with my nails painted black (though I had to for a stage production of Rocky Horror that I directed and played in ) I would say that this guy doesn't resemble what I would consider "emo" - he's not a brooding douchenozzle that seems mad at the world because his dad took away his Playstation. He seems good-natured enough and doesn't seem to take himself that seriously.
Just my $.02 FWIW
