Description

The Garcia Limited Edition Tiger is comprised of a special numbered run of just 21 instruments and is instilled with many attributes found in Jerry’s original Tiger. I’ve selected premium vermillion and figured maple to build the 9-piece laminated body core sandwiched between the sleek cocobolo back and hand-carved arched cocobolo top.

The 7-piece neck consists of curly maple, purpleheart, and vermillion, and is finished with custom headstock overlays. Maple replaces the costly hand-inlaid ornamental brass found on the original’s fingerboard and headstock bindings, resulting in a much more striking visual.

The Limited Edition Tiger’s electronics feature DiMarzio pickups in an OBEL package, with OBEL buffers created by Peter Miller (CAE Sound) who worked with John Cutler, Jerry’s collaborator on the original system. The pickup mounting ring has been improved by utilizing a brushed brass substrate, which eliminates the need for constant cleaning and polishing of the brass.

From its stunning ebony faceplate featuring a mother of pearl and abalone tiger to the unique Globe-Eagle headstock inlay, The Garcia Limited Edition Tiger hearkens back to half a century of craftsmanship and tradition.
