    YEars ago you could not find a working diagram for Jerry's guitar. Myself and another fellow pestered Brawer into confirming it..... but now you go and show me these pictures and I feel the urge to reverse the transistor based circuit in lucky 13.
    Cool post. Way cool alembic. Neat history and way cool of Matthew give it away to charity.

    Matthew says thanks. The auction starts soon, June 5th 7PM PDT.

    I would like to share his thoughts that I have copied from another source, "There is a a truly wonderful quote by Dr. Albert Schweitzer which says ,'The greatest gift that a man can have is to be able to be of service to his fellow man'. It is this concept that inspired me to want to 'pay it forward' and give freely of what was given so freely to me, by the ever beloved guitarist, Jerry Garcia, a man who continually gave so much of himself on so many different levels."

    Wow, I'm somewhat surprised that this guitar did not get more bids...

    I wish it would have sold for the bin price and raised some much needed funds.

    Sweet piece of history, perhaps they will run it again sometime soon.

    Good luck to Matt & crew
