Thought I'd share it with y'all.....
The Single Malt Guitar
These instruments are unique to Fylde guitars. http://www.fyldeguitars.com/ They are built using timbers reclaimed from the scottish, malt whisky industry. Each instrument is created as an individual, according to the available timbers and the customer's requirements. The body style of the instrument is limited by the size of the available timbers. Other instruments can be made using these wonderful materials.
The guitars illustrated were constructed from washback vessels and casks from the Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye.
I'd love one of these being a bit of a ham guitar player and a Talisker freak
Cool or what ..... and of course whisky related

if you follow the guitar maker and Pioneer there must be something in the properties of old whisky casks that makes the wood ver special. Or is it just that the wood can be over 100 years old in some cases?
I think you'll find that it is purely for the 'gimmick' of having a guitar made out of those particular items from a distillery.
I would actually question how the wood would sound after so many years being filled with a liquid of some sort, let alone hot washback liquid.
there must be something in this.

If Trey Gunn or Tony Levin were major whisky enthusiasts, there could very possibly be a whisky cask Chapman Stick.
Perhaps someone could make a spirit that is aged in casks that were made out of former guitars. Now that’s a bad idea!
