In celebration of the final season of Game of Thrones, Fender has teamed up with HBO to create the ‘Game of Thrones’ Sigil collection.
Comprised of three masterbuilt, handcrafted guitars—the Game of Thrones House Stark Telecaster, the Games of Thrones House Lannister Jaguar and the Game of Thrones House Targaryen Stratocaster—each instrument in the Game of Thrones collection is built to order via the Fender Custom Shop.
Handcrafted by Fender Principal Master Builder Ron Thorn, each guitar’s design drew inspiration from the house’s family sigil, costume designs, armor and weaponry, as well as each of their locations in Westeros. You can read about each of the three guitars below.
Fender Game of Thrones House Stark Telecaster—$25,000
The House Stark Telecaster features a lightweight swamp ash body, weathered with inlaid sterling silver purfling that is meant to reflect the broodiness of Winterfell’s landscape. The guitar features a maple neck with an ebony fingerboard, a hand-cut and engraved sterling silver Dire Wolf sigil inlay on the first fret in addition to an embossed nickel silver version on the pickguard. The guitar also features hand-engraved knobs, an etched neck plate and is finished with thin lacquer over custom paints, including “Raven Black” and “Gray Wolf.”
Fender Game of Thrones House Lannister Jaguar—$30,000
The House Lannister Jaguar guitar features a lightweight alder body with 24k Gold leaf and a heraldry design on both the front and back, paying homage to the Red Keep in King’s Landing. The guitar has a maple neck with an ebony fingerboard, a hand-cut and engraved brass Lion sigil inlay on the first fret, a 24k leaf heraldry design carved headstock face, gold hardware and a gold-plated pickguard that is engraved with the Lannister’s sigil. The Jaguar also includes an etched neck plate, hand-engraved knobs and is finished with a thin lacquer over custom paints including “Burnt Crimson” and “Lannister Gold.”
Fender Game of Thrones House Targaryen Stratocaster—$35,000
For the House Targaryen Stratocaster guitar, Thorn drew significant inspiration from the family’s sigil, a three-headed dragon, as this Strat features carved dragon scales across the front and back of the guitar. The lightweight alder body is adorned with black hardware, a maple neck with an ebony fretboard, a hand-cut and engraved sterling silver three-headed dragon sigil inlay on the first fret, as well as a hand-tooled and stained leather pickguard that also features the Targaryen sigil. The Strat also boasts an etched neck plate and is finished with thin lacquer over custom “Dragonglass Black” paint.
