The first thing I noticed was the wah pedal (earliest known photo AFAICT); the next thing I saw was that he appears to be playing the Rick Turner "Peanut". I think the most likely scenario is that he played the Turner creation from Nov 70 (or a bit earlier?) clear up til the end of the Feb 71 tour.
Wasn't he also using the "Peanut" at the April 1971 Fillmore East shows (beyond Feb. '71)? I thought there was a picture from one of those shows that showed it?
Gotta love Garcia's pants tucked in his boots!
