The massively popular TV series The Game of Thrones, was the inspiration behind Fender unveiling three very special guitars. These custom-made beautiful electric guitars have been dubbed the Game of Tones by the witty marketing guys from Fender.
The three very individual guitars have specific names:
- The House Stark Telecaster
- House Lannister Jaguar
- House Targaryn Stratocaster
Each guitar will bear the family crest and incorporate armor and costume designs used in the epic Westeros setting.
House Stark Telecaster
Available for a mere $25,000 dollars, you can buy your very own House Stark Telecaster, featuring a very lightweight ash body, inlaid with silver that is supposed to reflect the darkness of the landscape of Winterfell. The neck is made out of maple wood and features an ebony fingerboard. There is also an inlay on the first fret depicting a Dire Wolf, which is matched again on the pickguard. There is also a plethora of engraved control knobs, and the whole guitar is finished with a special custom paint job of Gray Wolf and Raven Black. Even the guitar case is spectacular with a wolf fur lining with a black suede exterior.
House Lannister Jaguar
If you are ready to part with a further $5,000, then you can stretch to the impressive House Lannister Jaguar version. This time the body is made from alder wood that is covered in gold leaf and features heavily heraldic imagery. Of course, with the luxurious Red Keep featuring prominently. The fingerboard is ebony with a maple neck, with a brass Lion inlaid on the first fret. The guitar also features gold hardware and a gold leaf headstock face. The pickguard is also gold-plated and boasts the Lannister crest. The overall custom paint is that of Lannister Gold and Crimson in keeping with the house colors. And the opulence does not stop there, as the case has a gold velvet interior.
House Targaryen Stratocaster
The most expensive of these three Fender special Game of Thrones guitars is the House Targaryen Stratocaster, which is a cool thirty-five thousand dollars. The designer drew heavily on the family’s most important feature, namely a dragon. And in this case – a three headed one. Dragon scales are carved all over the guitar, both front and back, etched onto the alder body. The fretboard is ebony and is mounted onto a maple neck. The theme of the three headed dragon continues on an etching on the first fret and the custom leather stained pickguard carries a flamboyant sign of the Targaryen House. The guitar is completed with special Dragonglass Black paint, and the reptile theme carries over to the case highlighted by red stitching. These three amazing guitars are unique, and although the cost of them is quite high it is a fair bet that they will be worth considerably more in the years to come. Fender has celebrated one of the greatest ever TV series with the only way they know how. And these three wonderful guitars will give pleasure both to musicians and fans of the series.
