If you really like The Last of Us Part 2, Sony would be happy to sell you some very expensive merch.

The PlayStation Gear store has recently been updated with a range of items inspired by The Last of Us Part 2, but none are more eyebrow-raising than a guitar that costs over $2,000.

This 20″ instrument is a replica of Ellie’s in-game guitar. Model 314ce, the guitar is made by Taylor and is priced $2,299. Pre-orders close at the end of July, but it won’t ship until August 28.

“Built with solid sapele back and sides and a Sitka spruce top, this model produces a balanced voice across the tonal spectrum with a rich midrange and clear treble notes,” its description reads.

“My guitar is a hand made Cordoba Luthier C12 constructed with European spruce, Indian rosewood, and maple. It is a top-of-the-line instrument. I paid $1,800 for it. This is absurd,” said musician Emmett Smith, who shared his reaction to the price on Twitter.

There’s another, smaller guitar on the store that sports a more reasonable $700 price tag. The top of that one has Ellie’s in-game tattoo. PlayStation Gear also has a few other items like t-shirts, a sherpa jacket, baseball caps, and of course, Funko Pop and Nendoroid figurines.

In case you missed it, The Last of Us Part 2 in-game guitars can actually be used to play music, thanks to an elaborate minigame. Be sure to bookmark our guides for safe combinations, Superhero Trading Card locations, Training Manual locations and workbench locations.
