Renowned guitar manufacturer Fender is celebrating its 75th anniversary with another collaborative guitar edition, this time partnering with SQUARE ENIX‘s FINAL FANTASY XIV.
The guitar features a custom paint job with a custom FFXIV pearl inlay, a vintage-style hard case, and an original certificate with an FFXIV illustration card. Set for a retail price of $3,499.99, the pre-order will take place for the Americas, EMEA, and Australia in late 2021.
Additionally, the in-game Strat is scheduled to release in conjunction with Patch 5.55 on May 25, as well as introduced to the Bard Performance mode, packing clean and distorted sound effects with special performance features for the guitar, including pick slides and palm muting.
We just announced the FINAL FANTASY XIV Stratocaster® electric guitar developed in collaboration with Fender, but pre-order info will come later!
But! #FFXIV Patch 5.55 will introduce an electric guitar to Performance mode, and a new furnishing.
