Fender Custom Shop Create Amp Out Of Reclaimed Bourbon Barrels

“80 Proof” Blues Junior Amp

Fender has something special in store. Their very own Fender Custom Shop has announced a new limited edition “80 Proof” Blues Junior.

A great amp to begin with, age has been kind to the “80 Proof”. The limited edition 15-watt wonder is encased in Kentucky bourbon barrels that even have distinct stamps and markings from a number of whiskey distilleries.

The amp is full of vintage Fender tones, hand-aged components enhance it’s unique cabinet making this a highly collectible boutique piece and there will only be 100 units made. And apparently, when the amp warms up, you can smell the whiskey.
