Fender Are Releasing Custom Game Of Thrones Guitars
To celebrate the final season of Game Of Thrones, Fender have announced three absolutely stunning new collaborative guitars.
In partnership with HBO, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) have unveiled three masterbuilt handcrafted guitars as part of their Game of ThronesTM Sigil collection: Game of ThronesTM House Stark, Telecaster®, Games of ThronesTM House Lannister, Jaguar®, and Game of ThronesTM House Targaryen, Stratocaster®.
“Ron Thorn at Fender has built three beautiful, GoT-inspired works of art, and you can out-shred your enemies with all of them,” says D.B. Weiss, creator and showrunner of Game of Thrones (along with David Benioff). “The craftsmanship and attention to detail reminds me a lot of what we saw in our costume and armory shops, and on our sets. I hope these make a few other people 1/1000th as happy as they make me.”
“This has been a two-year journey – much of it spent in the concept phase, nailing down a cool and authentic way to bring the two properties together,” explains Justin Norvell, EVP Fender Products. “We worked directly and extensively with Game of Thrones’ creator and avid guitar player D.B. Weiss to ensure that our vision, design and materials reflected the identity of each house. And there’s no better place than the Fender Custom Shop to tackle this task with experts in not only guitar-building, but specialized skills, such as carving and engraving, that really set these instruments apart. As existing fans of the series, we couldn’t be happier with the final results and this partnership overall.”
