Check out this guitar: it has an OBEL, 2 jacks and trisounds for both pickups. I'm not sure if it has the UGB. It was built by Ibanez, obviously with Garcia in mind. It's a very rare guitar - I think I've seen only 3. Lots of Jerrys play Musicians. I bet this one would make a great (stock) JG guitar. Good luck finding one!

Very cool MK
Do you know if Jerry played a stock Musician ?

I thought that Jerry must have modded the F out of this one but now maybe it was made that way ?

Thanks for the linky link ...

I can't tell what pups are in the guitar. I suspect Ibanez made the guitar for JG. There's a pic in The Untold Story (the history of Ibanez book published by Ibanez), of JG checking out an Ibanez guitar.

Jerrys isnt a stock MC, but it is not the MC3000 that seems to be modeled after jerrys custom ibby.

simple way to check is look at the pickup selector on the upper horn on the mc jerry is playing. It is a 3 way les paul style.
The MC3000 has the Weir like individual pickup toggles.

Actually, the 3 toggles are not on/off pickup switches like Weir had. Two are trisounds (one for each pickup) and the other is a standard LP 3-way pickup switch, just smaller to match the trisound switches. I wondered about that until an owner confirmed for me.
