Square Enix and Fender are collaborating on a set of both real-world and in-game guitars for Final Fantasy XIV Online.
Electric guitar manufacturer Fender has created a limited run of Final Fantasy XIV Stratocaster guitars. The guitar feature imitation crystal detailing, custom branding on the neck, and a vintage-style hard shell case with the game’s logo. Pre-orders begin in late 2021 with a ship date expected in early 2022.
Additionally, Square Enix has more details on the in-game guitars:
Players can also look forward to the electric guitar’s addition in-game as the newest instrument for performance actions. The in-game guitar is inspired by the Final Fantasy XIV Stratocaster guitar and will feature the ability to switch between five different audio tones, including clean and distorted sounds. Additionally, players can also enjoy special performance features for the guitar including pick slide and mute effects. Furthermore, a new indoor furnishing—the Magitek Electric Guitar—designed after the Final Fantasy XIV version of the Stratocaster, will be available to purchase in the Manderville Gold Saucer.
