We’re rather excited to announce that, after several logistical nightmares, we have taken delivery of what we believe to be Scotland’s Largest Guitar! The instrument is a 13ft tall, 192kg resonator, reminiscent of the instrument from the cover of Dire Straits’ Brothers in Arms album.
The guitar has murky origins, though it is thought to have originally been built for a restaurant in London prior to appearing on eBay and being snapped up by Red Dog Music.
An extremely accurate scale model, the strings and tuning pegs actually work, though we intend to get our luthier, Rod Vaughan, to take a look at the action…
Come in and check it out! You can see some more images here, including shop manager Dave looking disgruntled about finding a place to put it….
