Priced at £2,060 in the UK.
Way back in the murky past of last July, Sony put a real-life replica of Ellie’s guitar from The Last of Us 2 on sale that would set purchasers back a not-inconsiderable $2,299 USD. At the time, it was only available in North America, but now, to the presumed delight of more local, musically minded Last of Us fans, it’s made its way Europe.
In fact, Europe is getting two Last of Us 2 inspired instruments – the aforementioned replica of Ellie’s guitar and a more affordably priced black and white custom Taylor GS Mini, featuring a design based on Ellie’s familiar tattoo.
Ellie’s instrument – in actuality, a custom Taylor 314ce – is described as featuring a “distinctive rich tobacco sunburst top and a custom moth fretboard inlay in grained ivoroid”, while the GS Mini features “back and sides of layered sapele together with a solid mahogany top [producing] a bold, resonant acoustic sound with impressive volume and projection.”
You can see the custom Taylor 314ce in action, as played by Joel, in the video below.
As was the case for its North American release, the replica of Ellie’s guitar isn’t cheap; here in the UK, it’ll cost £2,060 including VAT (a standard Taylor 314ce retails online for around £1,699), while the custom GS Mini is priced at £630. Both instruments are also available to ship to Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Spain.
