A Guitar Made Out Of Whiskey Barrels
By Anthea Quay, 29 Oct 2012
Frontman of Bon Iver, singer-songwriter Justin Vernon, has teamed up with Master Luthier Gordy Bischoff to create a baritone guitar out of original white oak wood from Bushmills Irish Whiskey Barrels.
The guitar, named ‘The 1608’, references the year one of the oldest whiskey brands in the world, Bushmills, received its original grant to distill.
The 1608 is being auctioned on eBay to benefit The Confluence Project, a community arts center that will be built in Vernon’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
