diamond cabronita

NAMM 2013 We couldn’t have asked for a cooler guitar to greet us at the pre-NAMM Fender Custom Shop extravaganza – this is one that just makes you shake your head in disbelief. It is the Diamond Legend Cabronita, built by the incredibly talented Fender Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov.

The Diamond Legend Cabronita is the definition of exquisite. Not only does the guitar have an alder body with 4A-quilted maple top and back, a hand-rubbed black transparent stain, and a 4A-birdseye maple neck…Yuriy outlined the body with 377 real 8.5 carat diamonds, and very tastefully so – if you ask us. This guitar was just an all-around work of art, and with a price tag of $120,000 it’s up there in the fine-art price range, too. This was just a great guitar to set the mood for the Music Zoo’s NAMM 2013, and we were more than happy to see it.

    Can’t possibly be 377 “8.5” carat diamonds, can it? How big is an 8.5 Carat Diamond? A decimal point must be misplaced. Nonetheless, this Custom Shop Fender Diamond Cabronita is beyond mind blowing! Truly a Masterpiece by a Master Builder!

    I’ll take two. How quickly can you deliver? I’d like to save some money though and have them sent USPS, non-priority, if that’s OK? Please and thank you.

    To Gary Roberts @ 1, yes indeed there are 377 diamonds outlining the body of this tele. Just have a closer look and you will see also. He is a magnificent luthier and I look at the custom aqua burst Strat he built for me in 2012 and keep shaking my head as to how amazing it is. It took almost 12-months before I got it, but it was worth the wait. Also he is a very humble man. Keep up the great work Yuriy.

    gary I have to agree with you I would venture to say it a total of 8.5 carats or 85 carats total since I cant really see the diamond or the size that well. I can see well enough to know they are 8.5 each that would put the guitar well over 1mil in diamonds alone

    I’d be afraid to play it!, A real art piece. Love to look it over with a magnifing glass . Congrats fantastic job! It great guitars like these that reindorce the expression.You can’t have too many guitars.

    Those are NOT 8.5 carat they are .085 which is less than 1/1oth of a caray each. If you take .085 times 377 that equals approximately 32 carats. Small diamond like that are sold wholesale for about 500 to $600.00 per carat so the diamond value is about $16,000.00 to 19,000.00

  7. JG says:

    The guitar is cool and a nice piece I am simply correcting the typo calling them 8.5 carat diamonds

  8. JG says:

    Maybe they’re .185 carats each times 377 then that would be approximately 70 carats total weight time $600.00 to $800.00 per carat wholesale . Plus the uniqueness and labor , rarity and work. One 8.5 carat diamond would be over $100,000.00 by itself so the could never be 377 x 8.5 carat diamonds
