Phiga proudly proclaims on its website about the "Casta" guitar:
"Perhaps reminiscent of Cripe's work and something out of Jules Verne's "One Thousand Leagues Under The Sea", the "Casta" (named after Laeticia Casta) made its mark. Bob Weir (Grateful Dead) was the lucky owner of my first prototype."
Whether or not Bob Weir actually felt lucky and ever played the guitar, or whether his staff "cast" it into the nearest Dumpster remains unclear. Nonetheless, Phiga "made" a guitar for Bob Weir.
A friend of mine owns 2 1973 strats and they are so fun to play. They are the "slabs" , seriously the strat weighs over 14 lbs!!!
In terms of weight, everything included made Tiger tip the scales at 13½ pounds.
