Buy Justin Vernon's Whiskey Barrel Guitar

As you may know, Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon is a pitchman for Bushmill’s whiskey. His latest adventure in product design comes in the form of this guitar, an instrument designed by Vernon, executed by Eau Claire, WI luthier Gordy Bishoff (Les Paul is from Waukesha, WI, just saying) and made from barrels of Bushmills booze. The proceeds benefit Eau Claire’s Confluence Project, a program that aims to construct a community arts facility in Eau Claire. Watch a video of the guitar’s construction below.

Right now the bid’s at $7,100. Check it out at eBay.

  1. I think he’s evolving into Ron Swanson, kind of like how charmander evolves into charizard.
