    Yeap. The Mexican models are usually my favourites.

    Fender is simply riding the wave of the current social justice atmosphere in search of higher profits and they only care about "empowering" females because they want them to buy more guitars. Corporations are only compassionate insofar as it advances their one and only true motive, money.

    If the byproduct of pretending to give a fuck is the removal of archaic stigmas, then pretend to care all you want.

    It doesn't really effect my opinion of fender one way or another, but I kind of hold fender in reasonably high regard anyway.

    Pretty smart marketing move. I like that the way they worded it -- signature guitars for female artists, rather than "guitars for women".

    I remember really really wanting a PRS Orianthi Signature when it was announced, so hopefully other companies can join in on the action as well. Strandberg already has a Sarah Longfield sig. Maybe Ibanez could release an Yvette Young Talman with those sparkle finishes, that'd be pretty sick. I already mentioned PRS so maybe they can release a Kanami Tohno (guitarist from Band Maid) sig model, since she plays PRS Custom 24s pretty exclusively these days.

    I vaguely mentioned these earlier. If ever there were a sig guitar I needed, these would be the ones. Either one, or both, please.

    Now that the Talmans are gone, it would be great to release these. :agreed:

    Yes yes yes, Ibanez needs to make Yvette a production sig Talman right away. Really dig that green sparkle.

    Ever have one of those moments where spotify is on shuffle, you hear something you don't recognize, but it's pretty great? So you go look at who the artist is: Nili Brosh. You know who should have a signature instrument? Nili Brosh deserves a signature instrument.

    Eh... maybe I just haven't heard enough of her stuff, but everything I've heard is pretty run of the mill instrumental. Not a bad player, but nothing special or unique.

    ^ Some of the material, I think I'd agree. Some of it is great though. Tons of "passable" songs, but some hits mixed in.

    Hmm, since Nili (usually) plays 7's, I wonder if that would be the first female-sig 7-string guitar??? If so, that would be super cool.

    Ibanez is a dinosaur in that regard, unfortunately.

    That didn’t take long.

    Fender just announced a signature guitar and bass for Suu and Ainyan of J-pop band Silent Siren.

    Her phrasing and sense of melody is exceptional. She sort of reminds me of Satch in that aspect. Plus, she's touring as part of Dethklok and it doesn't get more metal than that :lol:
