This is sketchy
Cripe Jerry Garcia Bolt Guitar Jerry Garcia Model Bolt 96 Rosewood ... 6-rosewood

I asked;
"This is not an actual cripe guitar"
Your post is confusing as you say SC built it but then it was modified?
Help me understand!

To clarify it. Steven Cripe did build me a guitar but he passed away and I took it to another Builder who was an associate of his who inherited the shop and he made me an exact copy with a couple of minor improvements. This is that guitar

I thought his shop burned?
Ymmv. For $40k

Didn't Resurrection "take over" the Cripe business after he died?

The shop was mostly destroyed when Steve had the fireworks mishap that took his life.

Looks like a Resurrection with a staggeringly high price tag. Hope they got the bridge in the right place, which they did not do on my Tiger (and at least two other builds that I'm aware of).

Yes Chris! It would be interesting to hear what he has to say!

This certainly looks like resurrection work. A most outrageous asking price for sure. I guess my actual Cripe is worth what $50K?

How did you know my first name? I'm not concerned, just curious?

It's basically a Resurrection Bolt made with some of Cripes old wood. There are quite a few out there like this I believe. Wasn't it a bed from an opium den and not a chair? His other guitars for sale seem to be priced on the high side
