#5 Wolf Jr. (tremolo).
DI: After a while, I complete the fifth guitar for him, Wolf Jr. which was one
that he never really used much on stage or anything, it's a guitar that
doesn't have a head because it has an unusual tremolo system on it. It's a
Steinberger Trans Trem, and it uses strings, it has a ball end on each end of
the string. So it didn't have a peg head on it.
SQ: Why was it called Wolf Jr.?
DI: It looked very similar to the Wolf except it doesn't have a peg head, but
it's the same body style and it's made out of similar maple. I just really
couldn't think of what to do at the time, so I just decided that we'll call
it Wolf, Jr. and there's an inlay that I made for it but I never got a chance
to put on it yet, of Wolf, Jr. The Wolf is like, it's like a kid. It's made
out of the same materials and everything, but instead of being like the
19-year old looking Wolf, he was like the nine-year old looking Wolf, so it's
got kind of a goofy look on his face. That's Wolf, Jr. I thought eventually
this could evolve into its own cartoon.
So GD is calling guitar #5 Headless, but Irwin calls it Wolf Jr.
So does GD call #1 Wolf Jr because it was before Wolf and an early
generation of Wolf??
