Guessing Game: Can You Identify These Popular Indie Musicians by Their Guitars?

Everyone likes guessing games, right? Well, our pals at Bushmills and Bischoff Guitars recently teamed up with Bon Iver to design a guitar made of Bushmills Irish Whiskey barrels, which was auctioned off to benefit a community arts center in Justin Vernon’s beloved Wisconsin. How cool is that? Even better, they’re currently giving away an awesome custom designed Bushmills guitar strap to 10 lucky winners. Inspired by all this guitar business, we decided to make a fun little quiz to test your knowledge of well-known indie musicians and their guitars. Go ahead and see how you fare, then click here to learn more about the Bon Iver whiskey guitar and enter the contest. Good luck!
