Celebrating the 70th anniversary of Fender guitars 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.
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. Production of this exceptional collection has been limited to 1946 pieces in homage to the year that Fender was founded.
