If I ever were to lose you, I would surely lose myself.
Those are lyrics to a song that you’ll become very familiar with as you play through The Last of Us Part II. And if you’re a Last of Us superfan or just someone looking to own a cool new instrument, Naughty Dog has partnered with Taylor Guitars to recreate Ellie’s guitar in real-life.
Music is core to #TheLastofUsPartII, so we were thrilled to have an opportunity to partner with @TaylorGuitars to create a real-life recreation of Ellie's 314ce guitar, as well as a limited edition GS Mini. Learn more and pre-order on https://t.co/FtyGqoa8H0 pic.twitter.com/fvclFLukif

The first guitar you can get is the Taylor GS Mini. With a 17-5/8″ body length and 14-3/8″ body width, the GS Mini is perfect for someone looking for a travel companion. This guitar features Ellie’s iconic tattoo will set you back $699 (around £560).
Your other, more expensive, option is The Last of Us Part II Replica Taylor 314ce Guitar. It’s a direct replica of Ellie’s guitar complete with a tobacco sunburst top and moth fret board inlay. It’s a beautiful instrument – but it will set you back $2,299 (around £1,840). It’s a lot, but if you’re familiar with guitars you’ll know that a Taylor 314ce isn’t cheap anyway; a plain ol’ regular one will cost you $2,000. What’s an extra $300 for a stunning custom design?
If you have a wad of cash to drop on a beautiful instrument, both guitars can be pre-ordered now on the PlayStation gear store. Unfortunately for the rest of the world, shipping is only available in the US, Canada and Mexico.
