THE TIGER *REPLICA*

THE TIGER *REPLICA*

This is a *Museum Quality Replica* meticulously hand crafted using the finest materials. 

A faithful recreation of the greatest electric guitar ever made, Jerry Garcia's "Tiger" guitar by Doug Irwin. When Tiger & Wolf were showcased at the MET in 2019 I was able to take very detailed and up close photographs of these guitars on which I based by templates and informed my building process. My aim is to create the MOST faithful example, both visually and sonically, using the time tested and handcrafted methods that were utilized when creating the original pieces. 

Like the original Tiger, the Mother of Pearl inlays throughout the guitar is meticulously hand cut, as it is in all DeLuis Guitars.  I mention this repeatedly throughout my catalog because using CNC instead of hand cutting has become an industry norm, and I always want to honor Old World craftsmanship by utilizing skill, patience and practice in regards to the art of inlay.
