    Did Fender ever make a Hello Kitty Bass? Either acoustic or electric. A few years ago my bass player's wife and I got him a Hello Kitty acoustic. We'd like to get him a bass.

    Only Squier made Sanrio products, not Fender.

    I think the bass only came in a Badtz Maru model. Someone may know better though.

    "Hello Kitty" was also an electric guitar.
    Based on a Strat with one humbucker.
    Available in pink and black?

    Well, Squire is a Fender product, but yeah, they were labeled Squires. And it needs to be pink. Maybe we can make one out of a cheap Squire P-Bass or something.

    Here seems to be the answer:

    https://www.musicradar.com/reviews/guitars/squier-badtz-maru-bass-27462

    "But forget the Hello Kitty electric toothbrush, hair pin or gloves - you can now have the little cat's face on an electric guitar!

    Sanrio, the people responsible for Hello Kitty and her furry gang, have teamed up with Fender to create a guitar and bass aimed at encouraging young girls to start playing rock 'n' roll".

    Badtz Maru bass sold for 250 on CL here about a month ago. It was in perfect shape. I wished I had bought it as I have wanted one forever. I think they were about 140.00 new.
