I'm not sure if this has been posted here or not, it's from the lobby of the R&RHOF when they had these five on display (obviously before the Tiger sale). I remember seeing this display and taking pictures, but I'm not sure if this is one I took or if I saved someone else's photo. It'll most likely be a while before five of his guitars are in the same place again (aside from DK's closet).

What's the one on the right? Idon't think (no, I'm sure) I've never seen that guitar.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that his guitars were in the lobby BEFORE the ticket window, because someone in the Deads camp didn't want anyone to have to pay to see Jerry's guitars. Don't know if that's accurate or not. Never been there.

Correct- they were in the lobby. The one on the right is the headless one (Eagle?) I think Irwin talks about it in the interview on the Tiger page of Waldo's site.

Also between Top Hat and Lightning Bolt.

Yeah, yeah, that's it- thanks. Eagle was the first one- the one before Wolf that went to Ramrod, right?

Yes, I think this was made when Jerry was messing with a Steinberger with the headless neck and Steinberger trem.
