Game of Thrones has returned and to celebrate, Fender, the guitar company, has unveiled some of the most breathtaking guitars I’ve ever seen. D.B. Weiss, the co-creator of the Game of Thrones series on HBO, has been working with Fender CEO Andy Mooney for two years to create three beautiful guitars through the Fender Custom Shop. Each guitar is based on one of the three houses from the show: Lannister, Stark, and Targaryen. They will also come with a complementing carrying case. Here are the guitars:

If you think these are beautiful, you’re right. My favorite is the Targaryen Stratocaster, mostly for the scaly look. You can purchase these guitars through the Custom Shop website, but they’ll cost you between $25,000-35,000.

If you want to hear what they sound like, you’re in luck. Fender made a video that features Weiss, Ramin Djawadi (the composer for Game of Thrones), Nuno Bettencourt, Scott Ian, and Tom Morello playing the amazing theme song from the show together. Which one is your favorite?
