Rock On

Hong Kong Tatler Society - - Best Of Life -

Even if you’re not into rock, you’ll covet this daz­zling gui­tar, which is so much more than a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment. The Fender Pine Cone Stra­to­caster, de­signed by mas­ter crafts­man Yuriy Shishkov, is in­spired by the pat­tern of the Fabergé Pine Cone Egg. Some 550 high­grade di­a­monds are hand-em­bed­ded in the body. Each “scale” is gilded with fine sil­ver and 18-carat gold af­ter be­ing traced and carved ac­cord­ing to a 3D im­age of the orig­i­nal egg pro­jected onto the in­stru­ment. Shishkov in­laid three me­tres of 18-karat gold wire trel­lis into the fin­ger­board. The en­graved hard­ware is also gold-plated, in­clud­ing cus­tom knobs milled from scratch and adorned with di­a­monds. As if that wasn’t enough, the gui­tar is ac­com­pa­nied by an au­then­tic lim­ited edi­tion Fabergé Pine Cone Egg with match­ing se­rial num­ber. The egg is signed by Mai­son Ta­tiana Fabergé and, just like the orig­i­nal, fea­tures a minia­ture ele­phant in­side.
