Rejoice Euro shoppers! You can now buy Ellie’s replica guitar from The Last of Us: Part 2 for a mere £2,060. Take my money (if I had any).
The Last of Us: Part 2 Taylor Guitar is an exact replica of the one featured in the game, and to be fair, it’s a gorgeous piece of musical kit. The guitar initially became available in the US last year and had a cost of over $2,000.
Now let’s address the elephant in the room. At the time (before it became out of stock), this guitar sold for just over $2k on the US PlayStation Gear Store. Yet for the UK, it’s selling for £2,060. Taking into consideration the conversion rate, the UK is paying around £500 more than the US. Yikes!
That being said, Taylor is an excellent brand, and this is a stunning guitar. Not to mention that it’s a piece of history from the game.
Strum like Ellie!
According to the retail listing: “this special edition Taylor 314ce is a direct replica of Ellie’s guitar in The Last of Us Part II, complete with its distinctive rich tobacco sunburst top and a custom moth fretboard inlay in grained ivoroid.
“Built with solid sapele back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, this model produces a balanced voice across the tonal spectrum with a rich midrange and clear treble notes. The contours of Taylor’s Grand Auditorium body shape offer a comfortable playing experience and a versatile sound, while a slender, easy-playing neck accommodates players of all styles and skill levels.”
The Last of Us: Part 2 Taylor guitar also ships with a “deluxe brown hard-shell case” and estimates to dispatch on January 1st, 2021. Oh, and you get free delivery too. Bonus! The guitar will ship within Europe to the UK, Ireland, Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain.
