Sailor Jerry Guitar

William Grant & Sons-owned spiced rum brand Sailor Jerry has partnered with guitar manufacturer CF Martin & Co to release two limited edition instruments.

The Ink & Wood guitars, called Homeward Bound and True Love, feature designs inspired by the artwork of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins, a Navy veteran who built his reputation tattooing soldiers and sailors in Second World War-era Honolulu.

The images on the guitars are made from different coloured pearl and wood that has been reworked and reimagined to replicate Collins’ designs. Each guitar is priced at US$19,999.
