The Tiger Cub is a symmetrical version of the classic Garcia guitar shape. While at D Irwin Guitars, Doug and I made only a few of this particular design between 1974 and 1977, and now it’s been augmented and improved with a distinctive hand-carved arched top.

Its ornamental shape draws on the Gibson SG more than the Fender Strat style of Jerry’s original Tiger, and the use of its solid figured maple construction makes it ring like a bell.

In an homage to Jerry’s original Tiger, the new Tiger Cub boasts the intricately-patterned mother of pearl position markers and ebony fingerboard.
