The legendary guitar was built by Doug Irwin at Irwin Guitars. Doug's classic wolf design is inlaid in the body of the guitar.
While Garcia was in contact with the luthiers of Alembic Guitars, he came upon an instrument built by Doug Irwin and bought it on the spot. Eventually, he contacted Irwin and asked him to create a custom guitar for his own use. That was the inception of Wolf, which Garcia first played with Merl Saunders at a private party for the Hell’s Angels in 1973. The guitar actually originally contained a peacock logo, followed by Irwin’s eagle logo, but it was Garcia that placed the blood-thirsty wolf sticker on his guitar. Irwin eventually incorporated the Wolf into the design, thus giving he instrument its name.
Wolf was made from purple heart and curly maple, and features an ebony fingerboard and twenty-four frets. The guitar was predominantly used during the 1970’s, and was last played by Garcia in 1993. After a legal dispute, Irwin won back the rights to Wolf and auctioned it off in 2002. The guitar sold for $700,000, and has been most recently played by Warren Haynes on his Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration tour.
