A mystery English celebrity living in Monaco has commissioned the ultimate in heavy metal – a classic electric guitar plated in 24-carat gold. The Fender Stratocaster was sent to a precious metal specialist firm in Glastonbury, Somerset, for plating costing a “four-figure” sum. Expert Graham Baker, 50, had the job of stripping the aluminum guitar down and layering it with gold plate. He said: “This guy wants to hang it up on his wall and look at it.” – From BBC
