Very nice! I'd be wanting a glass of Talisker beside me as I played it.

Does the wood still have any of the whisky smell?

Hi, yes when the case is opened there is a very faint smell of Whisky - I don`t play it and have only played around 25 to 30 chords on it since I bought it in 1996, crazy I know but I own 10 guitars all collectables which I don`t play and another couple of just run of the mill instruments which I occasionally play.
I had a hell of a job tracking down the other one in US, that one was bought by a young Icelandic singer and used for recording and then he took it to America where it was eventually donated to a Bay Area charity for homeless people (set up by the sister of Joan Baez) and finally "raffled off" for the charity - teh ticket`s were $500 $1000 and $2500 each but I don`t know who "won" the raffle but I did send an email to Dan Gabel of peghead nation who said he would let Bruce Victor know there were two,
Hope this helps

Regards
Jim
