Developed in collaboration with the FFXIV team, the limited-edition Final Fantasy XIV Stratocaster® captures the originality, style and excitement of one of the world’s most popular online role-playing video games.
This incredibly unique Stratocaster is dressed in all black with a body that features translucent sections of blue and purple “crystals” designed to mirror Crystals of Darkness and Light, key thematic elements of the game.
The guitar features a maple neck with a slim “Modern C” shape that fits comfortably in the hand. A 9.5” radius rosewood fingerboard with narrow tall frets affords precise fretting and choke-free bends. Crystalline, warm and touch-sensitive tones are made possible via a trio of V-Mod single-coil Strat pickups while a “limit break” (a special ability used in FFXIV) switch takes the form of a push-push tone pot that puts the bridge and middle pickups in series for beefier sounds.
The FFXIV Stratocaster is highlighted with special game badging in the form of a meteor symbol inlaid into the 12th fret and a numbered neck plate decorated with the Final Fantasy XIV logo. Another special badge featuring both Fender and FFXIV logos adorns the front of the included vintage-style hardshell case. The guitar also comes with a special book containing a numbered certificate and an exclusive FFXIV illustration card made by Square Enix.
