The dazzling Pine Cone Stratocaster guitar was created by Fender senior master builder Yuriy Shishkov. Based on the classic design of a famous Faberge egg, the guitar gets its contoured look thanks to the use of a 3D image projected over the guitar prior to carving the body.
Every bit of the Pine Cone Stratocaster is covered in minute details, like this 18-karat gold-plated metal Fender logo. Diamonds are mounted flush into the face of the headstock. The one-of-a-kind guitar is destined to be put up for auction, where it is expected to fetch around $1 million.
