Guitar News & Videos
To celebrate the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones, HBO and the Fender Custom Shop have teamed up to release three masterbuilt, handcrafted guitars inspired by the series and the three Houses. Built by Masterbuilder Ron Thorn, the series is dubbed the Game of Thrones Sigil Collection and contain the House Stark Telecaster, House Lannister Jaguar, and House Targaryen Stratocaster! Each guitar in the Sigil Collection draws inspiration from each House’s family seal, their costume design, armor, weaponry and geography. Masterbuilder Ron Thorn, who specializes in engravings, machining, and inlay work – was the right builder for the job! Check out the video below to see shredders like Tom Morello, Nuno Bettencourt and Scott Ian riff up the Game of Thrones theme song, and see how show runner Dan Weiss worked with Fender to get each and every detail in the Sigil Collection right!
