For whisky makers, choosing a cask is crucial : its size and wood type determine the smell, the taste, the attack and sustain of the whisky. This explains why there are so many varieties of whisky.
At J.N Guitars, they believe that producing whisky and making a guitar are similar crafts as the shape of the body and the selected wood species give the instrument a specific sound and character. CASK therefore emerged as an obvious name for their Cigar Box Guitars.
FIRKIN is the first model of the CASK series. This acoustic Cigar Box Guitar stands out for its ace of spade shaped sound hole and will surprise you with its power and reactivity. It is also the ideal travel companion.
