The Stunning Diamond-Encrusted Fabergé Fender

About £660,000. That's probably what you came here to find out, right? But stick around - there's to the "Fabergé Fender" than that.

Inspired by the immaculate detail of the Fabergé Pine Cone Easter egg, the Pine Cone Fender Stratocaster hasn't been made for an anniversary or any formal occasion - it's just to show off. Something it does very well. 

Embedded into the body, fingerboard and headstock of this stunning axe are 550 high-grade diamonds, mirroring the egg's own glittering array of jewels. Each of those Pine Cone "scales" is gilded with fine silver and 18-karat gold, with a further 10-feet of gold wire inlaid into the fingerboard by Fender's master craftsman Yuriy Shishkov. And you probably guessed it, all the hardware is gold plated as well.

"I thought that the timeless, simple yet elegant pattern design of a Fabergé Pine Cone Easter egg would look beautiful on the Stratocaster body", explains Shishkov. "The goal was to make a very clean and vibrant tribute to old-world craftsmanship." We think he succeeded.

Accompanying the guitar in its velvet-lined box is a authentic limited-edition Fabergé Pine Cone Easter egg, completing a package that Fender expects to raise $1 million (£660,000) when the guitar is put up for auction later this year. 

No matter how good you think you are, no one is ever going to take you seriously wielding this at the next open mic night.
