For the record, this photo is from late 73 or possibly early 74. Jerry didn't yet have the Wolf guitar (as seen in this photo) until the summer of 73. It became known as the Wolf because of the decal Jerry placed on the body (which Doug Irwin later turned into an inlay). I'm not exactly sure when he added the decal, but photos from the autumn and winter 73 tour, the guitar doesn't have it, but photos from summer 74, it's there. So I'm guessing this photo is from somewhere between September 73 and June 74. Great picture, no matter when it was taken. :)
