You can (not) shred
To celebrate the upcoming Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time anime film – which has been postponed from its June release date – the teams from Khara and Fender Japan have collaborated on this slick Asuka-themed Fender Telecaster. The guitar, named '2020 EVANGELION ASUKA TELECASTER', will be released in mid-July in very limited quantities.
Looking closely at the design of the guitar, the 12th-fret on the neck has the Unit 02 marking embedded on it, with the body of the guitar painted in Asuka's signature red/orange and green colors from her plugsuit. It comes in a special hard case with the NERV logo on it, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time director Kazuya Tsurumaki.
The guitar will go on sale in mid-July for a steep 275,000 yen (US$2,580), but can you really put a price on looking this cool?
