Red Dog Music in Edinburgh tells us that they are excited to announce that, after several logistical nightmares, they have taken delivery of what they believe to be Scotland's Largest Guitar - 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, although Red Dog Music intend to get their luthier, Rod Vaughan, to take a look at the action...
