Alleged Jerry Garcia Guitar Surfaces, No Lawsuits Expected Over Lamb Chop
As litigation continues regarding the ownership and tax status of Wolf and Tiger, a New Mexico man has announced the discovery of a lost Garcia guitar he has dubbed Lamb Chop. Nicholas Gemini Sage Johnson III, a rain stick magnate claims that he designed the guitar for Garcia, who used it in some undisclosed parking lots during the mid-1980s. At least it was somebody who looked like Jerry, Johnson notes. At present, however, the provenance of the guitar remains suspect, as does the purported mother of pearl inlay which looks suspiciously like Sharpie marker. The design is oddly reminiscent of both a baby-sheep steak and the popular childrens sock puppet . A representative for the estate of Shari Lewis adds, This is wrong in so many ways.
‘Tiger’ and ‘Wolf’ will be on display at the Relix Auction Preview and Benefit New York’s Theater 99 on April 11. There is no word on the possible appearance of ‘Lamb Chop.’
