ST Dupont Fender
CELEBRATING THE 70TH ANNIVERSARY OF FENDER WITH AN ICONIC, INSTRUMENTAL COLLECTION. Fender was founded by Leo Fender in 1946, just as S.T. Dupont was inventing the first luxury lighter. Its meticulous craftsmanship has made it one of the most renowned names in the world. To this day, the biggest names in music are inspired by the Fender way of transforming wood and metal strings into beautiful musical instruments. The Fender Stratocaster, with its sunburst finish, shape and unique sound, became an instant icon and is synonymous with rock legends from Eric Clapton through Jimi Hendrix to the Arctic Monkeys. Now celebrating its 70th anniversary, this highly versatile, sleek and supremely good-looking musical instrument defies age with exceptional style and conviction. Their shared values of craftsmanship and innovation are what have made Fender, in California and S.T. Dupont, in France into global brands. Now, S.T. Dupont has reinvented the traditional art of lacquering to transform the iconic sunburst patina of the Fender Stratocaster into a special anniversary collection of handcrafted lighters and writing instruments. The brand has also created a line of Fender tweed-inspired leather travel accessories, especially for music lovers. Production of this exceptional collection has been limited to 1946, in homage to the year that Fender was founded.
