    Yep, pretty darn cool and they don't look bad at all, better than a lot of other "weird" one offs. The Tele expecially, I could rock that out.

    They looked like they were having fun.

    I wonder how they picked the guitarists? Fans of the show?

    I was hoping for a Tyrion ukulele. Maybe a Jaime Lannister harp. You can play those one-handed, right?

    Meh, look like standard Fenders to me, just with a different finish.

    Scott Ian is playing a Stark Tele. That works - I think of them as solid rhythm folk! What are the others?

    Ah - Nuno on the Lannister JM and Morello on the Targaryen Strat. Yeah, the models fit the families ;)

    What are they supposed to do? Come up with a whole new model?
    It's a cool set of one off's that are pretty amazingly detailed.

    It's art at that point, I get it. But it's not like they just slapped a wrapper on MIM tele.

    The strat took 90 hours of run time just for the scales? That doesn't take into account the CNC programming time, and the hand engraving details

    it is pretty cool, but the Tele had me at hello. LOL The direwolf across the P/G is just killer. really fits the 'no nonsense' of Winterfell.

    Watching Ron talk about these guitars and the process was fun. Made me feel truly lucky to own a couple of his pre Fender gems. Eyes always open for the right R/S

    Ron is awesome. Even while he's doing all this cool stuff at Fender, he recently helped me out with something related to a pre-Fender Thorn pickup order and was apologetic that it took him all of 2 days to do it. One of the good guys in this business, for sure.

    Outstanding!
    Ron is a true artist and puts his all in every guitar that he creates!
    Right on Buddy!

    Not my cup of tea in the slightest, but fantastic craftsmanship, and Ron seems like a cool guy. Now... if only Americans would learn how to pronounce Jaguar properly. :)
