If you have ever wanted to add a bit of bling to your guitar and have very deep pockets I have found just the company for you! Rock Royalty guitars offer a couple of different services, first of all lets look at the custom jewelled hardware. So to start off you can buy a Rock Royalty Custom Diamond Skull Guitar Tension Bar which has “floating black and white diamond skulls featuring 4.85 carats black diamonds and 1.18 carats white diamonds (6.03 carats total diamond weight) set in sterling silver and 18 carat gold finished with yellow gold” and that little headstock enhancement will set you back $7500. Rock Royalty also offer jewel encrusted tuners, volume and tone pots and even neck heel plates.
Secondly Rock Royalty offer a number of customised guitars which they call Custom 1/1 Guitars such as a custom Black Les Paul which has been blinged up with custom Rock Royalty Jewel volume and tone knobs, selector switch, pick guard, tuners… just about everything really and it is currently for sale for a cool $125,000.
Finally Rock Royalty have a series called KAGED Guitars which are wrapped in exotic animal skins (i.e. alligator, sting ray, bison) and then framed in a high-polish stainless steel cage, the first picture above is the Rock Royalty KAGED Alligator Custom Guitar which is a Fender Telecaster with two handmade Rock Royalty custom guitar volume knobs with 11.88 carats natural fancy black diamonds set in sterling silver finished with black ruthenium, a handmade Rock Royalty custom guitar selector switch containing 2.30 carats red rubies set in sterling silver finished with black ruthenium, and six handmade Rock Royalty custom tuning keys with 15.54 carats natural fancy black diamonds set in sterling silver finished with black ruthenium.
This guitar costs $85,000, but don’t worry there is a cheaper option using Stingray skin and less gemstones for a more affordable $20,000.
