This System 360 guitar synth was owned & played by Jerry Garcia, it is allegedly the very first guitar synth to be used for a recording. Jerry used this synth in conjunction with his Travis Bean TB500 SN 11. I bought the synth/TB500 #11/TB500 #12 from Steve Parish in 2006, Steve was Jerry’s business & equipment manager & is still totally immersed in all things “Dead” to this day.

The TB500 was equipped with the pickup that triggers the synth, the guitar & the synth became separated sometime in 2013.

We are trying to find the buyer of TB500 #11 to potentially reunite the guitar & the System 360, they were used together by Jerry from 1976 onward.
