A bottle of whiskey was the post-show beverage of choice for so many legendary rock bands. Fender is bringing the two worlds together again with the release of their limited edition “80 Proof” Blues Junior amplifier. The cabinet for the amp is crafted from used whiskey barrels, and no two are alike. Packed inside the booze-soaked case is 15 watts of all-tube power, reverb, and an upgrade 12″ 8-ohm Jensen P12Q speaker. Only 100 will be made—60 of which will be sold at select retailers in the States—so if you want your musical setup to include a bit of whiskey history, you’d best snag one before they’re gone for good.
