Music plays a rather large role in The Last of Us Part 2, with Ellie using it to connect to people like Joel and Dina. There are even gameplay segments that involve playing certain chords and someone could “play” famous songs on guitars found in-game. It turns out people will have an opportunity to recreate those moments in real life with a The Last of Us Part 2 guitar replica from Taylor.
Here’s Naughty Dog’s tweet reminding people about the item.
ICYMI: We collaborated with @TaylorGuitars to design Ellie’s guitar in #TheLastofUsPartII and produce a real-life recreation of it, which is available alongside a special edition GS Mini on the @PlayStation Gear Store. Pre-orders end on July 31! https://t.co/FtyGqoa8H0 pic.twitter.com/HTQxzhisYz

The Taylor 314e The Last of Us Part 2 guitar is available through PlayStation Gear and will cost $2,299 for the instrument. Pre-orders are open until July 31, 2020, and it will ship to locations in North America on August 28, 2020. It includes a hard-shell case and is designed to both look like Ellie’s guitar in-game and call to mind the series with things like a moth fretboard. The normal version of this guitar normally costs $1,999.
For people who would like a The Last of Us Part 2-themed guitar, but would like to spend under $2,000 for one, there is a second PlayStation Gear option. Taylor made a GS Mini Guitar that has Ellie’s tattoo on it. It’s a smaller model guitar that will cost $699. It will also be available to pre-order until July 31, 2020 and ship to North American locations on August 28, 2020. Also, like its more expensive sibling, it will include a hard-shell case. A standard GS Mini costs $499.
These are two of many The Last of Us Part 2 tie-ins. For example, Good Smile Company made an Ellie Nendoroid. There’s also a themed PlayStation 4, DualShock 4, headset, and external hard drive.
The Last of Us Part 2 guitar replica and mini guitar will both be released on August 28, 2020. The game is immediately available for the PlayStation 4.
