I am totally stunned.....

I go onto Dead.net to see the DeadCoversProject feature of the day, and there is my band..... Unlimited Devotion. I hoped we had a shot, but never really thought we would get picked.

Hey this is really great! I love the lead female vox. They add a dimension I wasn't expecting. Does she do all of the lead vocals or just the Brent stuff? Regardless, she sounds great. Totally a Dead cover band I would go see!

Who was the luthier on that Wolf?
Thanks everyone for the nice comments. They really mean something when they come from fellow musicians who play the same music. So thank you very much. This has been very humbling for us. Our friend and fan took a couple of videos he shot from one of our shows a couple of weeks ago and just submitted it. We would never have entered if it wasn't for a dedicated fan. So we had our one day of fame and back to the day to day.

The Wolf - Joni had that custom made by Pat at Resurrection Guitars in Juno Beach, FL. She chose him because he lives about an hour from us and she can take it back up there for adjustments (which she has on a couple of occasions) . It is very lightweight compared to most other Wolf's I have put my hands on. She is a small girl, an 8 lb guitar or heavier would be too heavy for her. I think this one comes in just under 7 lbs. its a 25 in scale (like PRS) with a 1 5/8 nut . Pat used lighter weight materials, including custom smaller headstock. Its got the Jerry electronics , waldo buffer I believe (may be the competitors) , OBEL etc etc.

Well, you guys are doing something right because I made it to the end of the video!

One of the things that caught my eye, aside from the strong vocals and female Jerry role, was the brownface era Fender that Joni was playing--really cool. Would love some info on that bad boy.

Great work.

Thanks for making it till the end of the video :D

The amp she is using is either a 61 or 62 Fender Concert w 4 10's , no reverb (she uses a TC Elec. Hall of Fame reverb pedal).
