Yes its for sale!! The first 2 sold out fast and we managed to get our hands on one last one! Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of history You can reserve this one which will be here at HBG October 15th! This is an heirloom collectors guitar that is meant to be played! Alpine Spruce over African Blackwood make a killer tone combo!
The guitar features copper from the 10 traditional copper pot stills used to triple distil Bushmills Irish single malt and barrel wood that has been used to mature whiskey for hundreds of years at the world’s oldest licensed whiskey distillery, The Old Bushmills Distillery. The barrel wood has been complemented by some of the best tone woods in the guitar world – African Blackwood and Alpine Spruce.
Colum Egan, Master Distiller at The Old Bushmills Distillery, collaborated with George Lowden to select materials for the guitar from the whiskey-making process.
In addition to the original pot still copper featured on the guitar, Oloroso sherry casks have been used on the back inlay and the 12th fret inlay to pay homage to the dark intensity and smoothness of BUSHMILLS BLACK BUSH, an Irish whiskey blend that combines a high amount of malt whiskey matured in former Oloroso sherry casks. African Blackwood was then used on the back and sides of the guitar and Alpine Spruce for the soundboard.
