We still don’t know who will sit on the Iron Throne on HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones, but what we do know is that we’re just a few episodes away from finding out for sure.
And today, in honor of the new, and final, season of the show, the Fender Guitar Company has announced that they’ve teamed up with HBO to drop three master-built handcrafted Game of Thrones guitars – dubbed the Game of Thrones Sigil collection – including three models for three fan-favorite houses – 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,” said D.B. Weiss, who along with David Benioff, serves as creator and showrunner of Game of Thrones. “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.”
Handcrafted by 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, sparing no details. Thorn’s decades-long experience in luthiery, engineering, inlay, engraving and CNC machine work made him the perfect craftsman to build this ornate collection of guitars.
