Some of my favorite Garcia stuff.

I think it's an SG. In the David and the Dorks shows at the Matrix Garcia was playing an SG (I've seen numerous Picts to this end). The time period would suggest sunburst strat,but I think it's SG.

Cowboy Movie sounds like humbuckers to me.

wow, Its very useful to know he used his SG for the Matrix... i can compare studio tapes to the Matrix gigs!
could you post here any David and the Dorks pics?? nothing comes up on the 'net so far with photo searching.

is the track personnel listing for IOICRMN generally thought to be accurate?

ya Jerry could have been in his strat period but, depending on what other instruments musicians were using could have had something to do with his choice of guitar.

please more!

Here's one. I found it just by doing a google images search for Garcia Crosby. I am in Greece right now so I am having trouble finding more - searches are REALLY slow. But there are at least 3-5 more from the same night where you can fully see the SG. In this one, you have to surmise SG from the neck and headstock.

wow thanks!
and ya, did the search you did and found a little more.
found the Dead Tapes Site thru that... and jerry's middle finger blog. cool.
ya so apparently it is the SG on the sessions if he was working up the material in these photos with it.
will need to really get the headphones on.

Not that I terribly minded doing it but these all came from Google Image searches
