This Luxurious One-of-a-Kind Custom Stratocaster is Inspired by a Faberge Egg

Created by Fender's master builder Yuriy Shishkov, this one-of-a-kind custom stratocaster was designed by an individual 1900 Faberge Pine Cone Easter egg created for the Russian Royal family. The painfully intricate design was hand detailed by Shishkov and is expected to fetch up to $1 million at auction in the coming months.

While it may not be practical for everyday use, this luxurious guitar is sure to become a status symbol not unlike a coveted Faberge egg, of which there are only 43.

This custom stratocaster consists of a single-piece maple body, a maple neck and 10-feet of 18-karat gold wire ribbon, as well as 550 high-grade diamonds.

This niche piece is a curious experiment in extreme luxury and is so opulent, it seems that it makes sense there should be only one.
