Why don't girls play guitar? asks the BBC News Magazine. Which is a strange generalization, I reckon, because the trend over the last few years seems to be that more girls than ever have been taking up the guitar. Haven't they? They must be building all those Daisy Rock, Luna, Fender Hello Kitty, and Kramer "Jewel" guitars for someone, surely? However, it's a pity that the marketing departments of some of these companies seem to think that in order to appeal to the female market a guitar needs to be pink or hideously cutesy in some way.
