The Guitar Dater Project - Home
Formed in Palo Alto, California in , the Grateful Dead carved out one of the most amazing stories in the history of rock music. In a relationship with the Dead dating back to the eighties, Alvarez Guitars jumped at the chance to create the 50th anniversary guitars, adding to their previous Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir signature models. In typical Alvarez style the company pulled out all stops in both design and build departments. Guitars are bound front and back, the fingerboard is also bound. Cosmetically, these guitars are really something! Designed using a new and unique screen-printing process from the Alvarez custom shop, which lets the Spruce top become part of the artwork, every one of these instruments is therefore unique. Another piece of Grateful Dead art that features on both guitars is the famous dancing bear on the back of the headstock.

Founded in as a result of the partnership between Japanese luthier Kazuo Yairi and American investors, St. Louis-based Alvarez guitars has steadily grown over the decades. Manufacturing banjos and mandolins with their guitars, the company has become known for the warm, full tone that can only come from the finest hand-crafted instruments. As demand and production increased in the '70s, Alvarez began assigning serial numbers to their products to easily identify the year and month of production.
