Black Friday guitar deals may be on the horizon, but – hold the door! – if you’ve got the budget of a Lannister right now (if not the house loyalty) you may be interested to know that there are huge discounts available on Fender’s ultra-collectible Game of Thrones electric guitars over at Guitar Center.
The House Stark Telecaster has had $6,000 lopped off its asking price, bringing it down to $19,000, while the House Targaryen Stratocaster is down $8,000 to $27,000. Before you ask, the House Lannister Jazzmaster is sold out.
Launched to commemorate the final season of the insanely popular HBO series, these luxuriously appointed guitars were built by Fender Custom Shop builder Ron Thorn to replicate the costumes and props used on set.
The House Stark Telecaster boasts a lightweight swamp ash body, weathered with inlaid sterling silver perfling.
It features a maple neck with ebony fingerboard and engraved sterling silver Dire Wolf sigil inlay on the first fret, and an embossed nickel silver version on the pickguard.
You also get hand-engraved knobs, an etched neckplate and a case with faux wolf fur lining. Noice.
The House Targaryen Strat packs – what else – carved dragon scales across the front and back of its alder body, while there’s 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.
There’s also an etched neckplate, maple neck with ebony fretboard, and a case with all-black reptile design. Hot stuff.
Fender Game of Thrones House Stark Telecaster
Show your loyalty to House Stark with this meticulously put-together Custom Shop creation, a collector’s showpiece adorned with hand-crafted touches true to the Game of Thrones TV show. It’s expensive, sure, but it’s also undergone a $6,000 price cut.
Fender Game of Thrones House Targaryen Strat
The Mother of Dragons deserves the mother of all Stratocasters, and this painstakingly assembled electric does justice to the House Targaryen thanks to a body adorned with carved dragon scales, and a whole host of aesthetic tweaks you’ll only find on this guitar. At this price, it’s only for the most well-heeled of GoT fans, but at least there’s $8,000 off.
