The Jerry Garcia™ guitar collection is one of music’s most famous and revered set of musical instruments. AXE HEAVEN® is honored to be working closely with Jerry Garcia Family LLC Under Exclusive License to JGF Rights Holding, LLC, to bring to life the first officially licensed set of mini replica collectibles of Jerry’s most beloved guitars.
Groundbreaking Music and Sound
Like many aspects of the music business, Jerry’s iconic band the Grateful Dead were one of the first to focus on developing custom guitars (and matching amplifier sytems) to create a powerful wall of sound unlike any heard before.
As the band’s fans know well, the music always came first. The unique cascade of intertwined notes and extended jams flowing from their guitars were the keys to creating their distinctive, groundbreaking, and incredibly popular music.
Jerry Garcia’s Guitars Keep On Truckin’
The reverence Jerry’s fans have for his musical and personal legacies is perhaps unmatched, as multiple generations of Dead Heads continue to bask in the aura of his distinct style and sound a quarter-century after his passing.
Occasionally, as a tribute to his enormous impact on an ever-growing legion of devotees (and a definite rare gift for their ears), Jerry’s spirit is resurrected and celebrated when guitarists, such as Warren Haynes and John Mayer, receive permission from his estate to play one of these cherished instruments in a special live concert setting.
Jerry Garcia’s guitars took on a personality of their own, as each had a unique tone—and unofficial name: Alligator™, Tiger™, Wolf™, Rosebud™, Top Hat, Lightening Bolt, and more.
Each new guitar Jerry Garcia acquired represented another step in the evolution of his unique playing style. His constant quest to create new sonic signatures expressed his soulful, thoughtful presence and pushed him and his bandmates to cross previously uncrossed musical thresholds.
Craftsmanship Even Jerry Would Appreciate
Every officially licensed Jerry Garcia™ mini guitar replica collectible by AXE HEAVEN® is handcrafted from real wood, with metal tuning keys. Each model includes an A-frame stand in its guitar case gift box.
The precision and detail of these non-payable mini guitar replica collectibles will bring a beautiful bit of Jerry’s legacy right into the palm of your hand.
