    Thinking about doing the same for my girl. Not a bad looking instrument.

    I find it strange, though, that they would limit their market by just gearing the brand toward females. I could easily see a boy playing that, but he probably wouldn't want to due to the name on the headstock. :confused:

    That's a pretty groovy, little guitar...

    Maybe they think by marketing solely to girls they'll get more sales than they would if they marketed to both? I can see it working.

    That's got to be the idea. They created a niche market for themselves that no one else was targeting -- guitars designed specifically for girls. I wonder, though, if there aren't just as many girls who wouldn't want a "girl's guitar" as there are girls who would.

    Funny thing is, they make (or used to make) some guitars that don't look girly at all, but I couldn't see a guy wanting one of them, because the brand has been so firmly established as a maker of guitars for girls.

    bought my daughter one of these:

    but in blue and minus the bigsby. It's a very nice little guitar and the pickups sound great. She doesn't play it at all -- went off to college without it, in fact -- so it might just sneak into Dad's stable as a dedicated slider.

    I'm not advocating a uni-sex line. I think the gender-specific thing can work, but I also think they're missing out by not making a companion boys' line. They make some pretty cool guitars.

    she picked up a purple sparkle one at GC last year around Christmas time and showed it to me...pretty decent guitar that I wouldn't mind playing but at the time I didn't have the $$ anyway.
