    Can anyone guess the pickups at 8:23 - 8:27?
    They do not look like PRS pickups to me ...

    I'm definitely a fan of Dead & Co but I was a little disappointed when I saw them because the song tempos were all a bit slow. It didn't prevent me from buying tickets to the Wrigley Field though. I'm ready.

    In that last pic, Weir seems to be saying to Mayer: “I’m crushing your head!”

    Dig the triple covered pickup “594”, Mayer sounding superb with it....he’s really gotten inside this music giving it new life. Enjoy the tour, hope to hear more about this guitar!

    A guitarist I follow was talking about how when he cranked his Marshall the loud volume would do a "particular thing with the speakers" that he loved but it would be louder than the PA when pointed forward. He would tip the cabinet towards the ceiling so the sound guy had something to work with. Now he plays an Axe FX 3.

    I have been wondering about the placement of Weirs amps. It can't be a volume thing because that is why he has the 2 UA OX Boxes. I know with Wolf Brothers he toured in small very nicely acoustically complemented theaters and used the amps facing up. It appears he has settled on just a standard placement the last few shows.

    Part of the tempo thing I hear is for Bob to sing some of the songs better as for instance the intro to Trucking at the old tempo was sure a mouthful to spit out.
    It has varied, 2017 SLC slowest Row Jimmy I ever heard but it was very dynamic and interesting also. This past Friday and Sat at the Gorge was a great tempo for them. I hope it stays there.

    Remember, If you get confused just listen to the music play!

    Mayer must be a big dude, that sweet guitar looks diminutive in his hands!

    The Interwebz says he is 6'3". Yeah, not a short guy.

    And I would be lying if I said I didn't want one of these guitars...

    Yes, looks like Mayer is using two new different PRS set ups that are not last year's Super Eagle. Both with 3 pickups but the switching and bodies are different. Anyone got the scoop on their details? Super Eagle 3?

    Saw Dead&Co. JM played the new PRS on every song for nearly 3 1/2 hours. Incredibly versatile guitar. What is this thing? He spends almost all the time on the neck pickup which has the flutey tone that I associate with a good single-coil.

    Mayer is playing “Wolf” (one of Garcia’s Doug Irwin guitars. The first, IIRC). As much as I love Garcia’s playing and music, I have to say, Mayer’s PRSs sound better, more alive and present, to my ears.
    Still, it’s a really cool tribute
    Info on Wolf by its creator, for anyone interested

    I agree. I think the new PRS, with the pickup selector up top, that Mayer has been using on the current tour sounds better than Wolf did tonight. Maybe Mayer didn't have time to dial it in enough. So what is Mayer's new PRS???
