to some extent i agree with vic, but unlike the tour irsay allowed with the "on the road" scroll thru the US, the Tiger has been tucked away, for the most part, hidden from public view. His assistant has informed me that it may make it's rounds one day, but he has owned it for several years now and no such thing has been attempted as of yet. i have tried to get to it to confirm for the masses it's exquisite details for all, but have been only given 4 photos of it from them and have had to rely on others info of it. one of which is irsay's curator who luckily knows the significance and has helped immensely. that all said, it is his instrument to do whatever he feels like doing with it. but i have only recently begun to think that his scant photo's with it appear to be a little insulting in that it appears to be kinda like, look what i have, na na na na na na, type of thing. i have sent the assistant my request for a few years now, and recently sent him the website i have been working so hard to accurately represent, only to be told that Jim would not be interested in some fans website, or care for the historical content it contains and that it's football season with much more pressing issues to tend to. he did however just let a gearhead from the yahoo group get a hold of it, but it was not measured or detailed in anyway. so i still hold out hope in getting to it, but that hope is fading.
wolf has made it's rounds and is apparently available to some. and the other 4 at the RnR HOF are available to be viewed by the public FOR FREE. they are located in the gallery before you enter the actual HOF and that is because of the stipulation given to the HOF that the core 4 made. the instruments were given to them on loan only if they are displayed in an area that is free from admission to the RnR HOF, ie... free to the public. it would be cool if Irsay did something like that also, but as of now, it's only really played by him in private as if he was the only one attached to that instrument and to me that is kinda of a jerkish way to go about an historic piece of RnR history and for a piece that is cherished by many, many deadheads. so i can definately see why some heads may be ticked off to see him holding it like that in that way. it does kinda feel insulting. and very reminiscent of how his family treated the baltimore fans when he moved there team in the middle of the night. like father, like son, his dad said "it's his goddamn team" and son is saying "it's his goddamn guitar".
just my .02 cents.
