eBay Auction: Bon Iver’s Whiskey Barrel Guitar
The idea of making a guitar out of a Whiskey Barrel is quite intriguing. The fact it was conceived by Justin Vernon (frontman of Bon Iver) is even more appealing. Here’s the best part, the guitar is currently on auction on Ebay through November 2nd. The baritone guitar (pictured above) is made of original white oak wood from a Bushmills Irish Whiskey barrel. You’ll be happy to know that the money will benefit The Confluence Community Arts Center in support of Justin’s hometown of Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Listen to the story in this charming little video with Vernon and his longtime friend, guitar maker Master Luthier Gordy Bischoff on how it all came together.
