Bruno Mars Launches First-Ever Signature Guitar For Fender


Bruno Mars has partnered with Fender to create his first-ever signature guitar, the Bruno Mars Stratocaster, which launched this week. “I don’t think of myself as a guitar player. I’m more of a frustrated songwriter. Every song is like a puzzle you have to solve, and a good guitar can bring something out of you that can help take you to the finish line. That’s what I wanted from this guitar,” Mars said in a statement. “It was also important to have a workhorse that I could depend on for performing live and writing in the studio, whether it be rhythm or lead.” The Limited Edition guitar comes in a new caramel color, and includes a leopard print strap as a nod to two of Mars’ own guitar heroes, Jimi Hendrix and Prince. The Bruno Mars Stratocaster retails for $3,000.
