Video includes a Fender crafted from 100-year-old Alaskan cedar:

From Fender craftsman Yuriy Shishkov, the new Front Row Legend Esquire guitars are crafted from 100-year-old Alaskan yellow cedar reclaimed from the boards of the Hollywood Bowl's original benches made in 1919. The guitars are selling for around $12,000.

Cool,

Our phase plugs are made of yellow cedar — but much more recently harvested. It makes a good building material because insects don’t like it.
