That's much the realisation I came to six months or so ago. Had never heard of her then realised she was amazing. Properly in awe of her music.

There's been a bunch of FINALLY A GUITAR DESIGNED FOR WOMEN WITH BOOBS posts about this on fb but I don't see how it is any more boob-friendly than a reverse Firebird or Explorer?

I don't see how it is any more or less boob-friendly than any other guitar, full stop. Weird. But then, that's Facebook for you I guess.

Weird that the guitar has to be thought of in terms of boob friendliness.

Have seen several women comment on how the design would suit their bodies. Had never realised normal guitars were uncomfortable (unless you wear them really high).

Yeah, that's what I find to be surprising. Arm contours and tummy contours are obvious enough, but...tit contours?

But some people like to wear them high.

Which is fine.

I like it. Probably wouldn't play it as it looks kinda cumbersome and heavy, but I like the looks of it. Reminds me of the Gibson designed guitars that gave a nod to the modern cars of that time with their big fins and sharp edges.

If she needs a guitar that is breasts friendly I would've suggested any of the Yamaha SVG guitars with the upper body and bout minimized to very comfortable proportions, although she may or may not appreciate the phallus that forms the lower bout.

I kinda don't know what to make of it, other than that I'm overjoyed at her having a sig model.

If think if it was a little more 'Jetsons' surf (lighter blue, single coils) that could be a possibility, but not one for me. Dead keen on trying one out, tho.

If it had a different headstock I would actually like it a lot.

Nope. Strangely enough, the specs are included in the link announcing the instrument.
It's full Fender scale 25.5"

Full scale? That is too bad. It is not for me this guitar.

Why, your boobs can't fret all the chords on a full scale neck?

Did I post this in the "Short Scales" section or the "All other guitars" section? Hmm?

It's a bit less ugly in black, but I still don't like it. But, hey, why not, Annie has indeed an eclectic taste in guitars (I saw her play what I think was a gorgeous vintage Guild M75 to great effect - now that kind of guitar is a lot more up my alley ...)

I fuckin hate full scale necks, I can not even stand the sight of them. If my first guitar was a seventies Fender Mustang instead of a Fender Stratocaster I would have been a better guitar player.
