Garcia Limited Edition Tiger

This is the custom hand-built version of Jerry Garcia’s Tiger that D Irwin Guitars may have eventually offered to the public. As one of the original designers I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and as a builder I couldn’t be more proud! It has always been my belief that the greatest art is always achieved through collaboration.

Only 21 serial-numbered Garcia LE’s will be created over next few years.
