Fender Amps + Whiskey?… Duh.

Q: How do you possibly improve upon the classic Fender amplifier tone? A: Wrap it in a vintage, reclaimed whiskey barrel of course!

There is something we just automatically love about the idea of stuffing a Fender Blues Jr amp into a beautifully weathered and reclaimed whiskey barrel. It’s a no-brainer… The blues and whiskey just kinda go together.

The “80 Proof” Blues Junior amp features 15 watts of all-tube power, reverb and an upgraded Jensen P12Q 12-inch speaker. Other features include external include brass knobs, a leather handle and a brass control plate finished with the Fender logo seared into the wood.

Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for this beauty though as the run is limited to just 100 units worldwide and retails for $1,999.99.

The Death of a Blog

In July of 2011, I began the blog A Life Designed as what I had hoped would grow into an active “community” where people interested in all creative pursuits, be they musical, artistic, fashion, architecture etc could exchange thoughts and ideas. Unfortunately, 4 years in, it is now sadly time to admit that my original intent has failed. Continue reading…
