Whiskey and great music have always been inextricably linked.
Fender continues to solidify that relationship with its limited release of the “80 Proof” Blues Junior Amplifier. Beautifully encased in repurposed whiskey barrels, the amplifier sports brass knobs and a brass control plate, plus a gorgeous leather handle. And to top it all off, the Fender logo is burned into the wood. It’s a great piece of functional art. Plus, it sounds as good as it looks. Tucked inside the booze-soaked case is 15 watts of all-tube power, reverb, and a 12″ 8-ohm Jensen P12Q speaker. Production is limited to 100 pieces, and the amplifier goes for $1,999 – sixty of which will be sold at select retailers in the United States. So if you want your musical setup to include a bit of whiskey history, best grab one before they’re all gone.
