****** i only noticed after the fact of entering this that there was already another one including the same picture so apologies!******
I just wanted to update this as i saw members had posted a generic white Strat photo.
Here is what is stated on the website www.groundguitar.com:
This guitar was most likely one of his first electric guitars, built by Jerry himself sometime in the early 80s. According to an interview he gave to GuitarWorld Magazine in 2014, Jerry worked at the Boogie Bodies shop and was offered to pick out one of the Boogie necks that the owner (Lynn Ellsworth) prepared to send to Eddie Van Halen. Rest of the guitar Jerry allegedly built himself using instructions given to him by Lynn. He built the body in his high-school wood shop class,which included drilling all the holes and adding contours to the body. The hardware that he used is unfortunately a mystery, but it based of the pictures he used a single humbucker placed in the bridge pickup cavity, a Kahler tremolo system, and a locking nut.
The guitar was most famously used in the Them Bones video. Jerry still has it, although he never used/uses it live at least according to what we’ve were able to learn.
can be seen at the 8-9 second mark.
