Few musical venues are as legendary as the Hollywood Bowl. What started as a makeshift stage has grown into one of the most important and influential places to see everyone from Frank Sinatra to Jimi Hendrix perform. And it’s this heritage that makes Fender’s Front Row Legend Esquire such a special guitar – it’s actually made from reclaimed wood from the Bowl.

100-year-old Alaskan cedar – that’s what the original bench boards of this venue were crafted from. And Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Yuriy Shishkov got his hands on some and built an absolutely gorgeous Esquire guitar – the single-pickup precursor to the brand’s famous Telecaster. And it’s looks are matched by the punchy retro tones it can produce. Furthermore, each guitar built features a unique seat-identifier number on its face – making every single one unique. Truly, this built-to-order six-stringed instrument is something to behold.

Purchase: $12,000
