In a fusion of high fashion and music technology, Fender Musical Instrument Company has joined forces with Saint Laurent Rive Droite to launch a limited-edition collection. This exciting ensemble consists of a Fender x Saint Laurent Stratocaster electric guitar, a Fender x Saint Laurent Deluxe Reverb amplifier, and a set of Fender x Saint Laurent custom guitar picks.
Fine Craftsmanship Meets Elegance
Under the creative direction of Anthony Vaccarello, the limited edition encapsulates Fender’s meticulous violin-making prowess while mirroring Saint Laurent’s elegant signature. The high-gloss black Stratocaster electric guitar features an alder body and a ’60s “C”-shaped maple neck. With a flat-bound ebony fingerboard and sterling silver inlaid dots, the guitar strikes a beautiful balance between classic wooden instruments and high-fashion accessories. The black-painted single-layer pickguard houses hand-wound ’60s Stratocaster pickups within a black lipstick casing for the quintessential Fender tone with a contemporary twist. Featuring a synchronized vintage tremolo bridge, the body is embellished with a silver Saint Laurent logo.
Vintage Amplifier with a Twist
The limited edition Fender ’65 Deluxe Reverb x Saint Laurent amplifier is a timeless Fender classic, revered by rock, blues, and country musicians around the globe for its great tone and mid-’60s vintage style. This exclusive limited edition speaker also sports the YSL brand logo, an updated housing with YSL branding, and a black grill cloth.
Custom Picks for Every Style
Rounding up the collection are the limited edition Fender x Saint Laurent custom guitar picks, designed for any playing style or technique. The classic 351-shaped Fender pick is designed for easy grip and a rounded tip to minimize string noise. Crafted from premium celluloid material, the pick delivers a traditional feel and a warm, round tone. The limited-edition picks are available in sets of six in a co-branded collector’s box: two black, two white, and two checkered.
Currently, this exclusive collection is available only at SLRD stores in Paris and Los Angeles. The co-branded guitar is limited to 10 pieces worldwide, with the possibility of additional production if demand dictates.
