"Wolf" Prototype Announcement

@johnmayer Instagram post

I’m honored to have received the prototype of a very special guitar: Doug Irwin @irwinguitars, the luthier who built Jerry Garcia’s famous “Wolf” guitar, commissioned the great Bill Asher @asherguitars to faithfully recreate the original using all of Doug’s original drawings and templates. The result is pretty unbelievable. How unbelievable? I have to make sure to post this before tonight’s @deadandcompany show to make sure people don’t mistake it for the real thing! As someone who was lucky enough to play Jerry’s Wolf guitar for a show back in 2019, I can confidently say Doug and Bill nailed it. It shall always be played with love for this music and a culture that’s accepted me with open arms. See ya on stage…
