    Yep. Had a pink BC Rich Bich quite close to the one pictured. It was a great guitar. Sorry I got rid of it.

    I use to have a Kaman GTX that was pink and had lightning on it. It was so 80's. Sadly it was stolen.

    I would love a shell pink Fender Jaguar. Very nice softer pink color.
    Pink and purple guitars are cool

    I was always a huge fan of Steve Steven's old Hamer guitars:

    I've got one of the first run of the Daisy Rock Supernova from 2007, in pink with a white guard. Kinda hard to find these days. It's a fantastic guitar. It's clear the company was seriously focused on making "good guitars for girls," not "girl guitars," and had good input from Schecter. I have a later example in blue sparkle (Astral Blue, IIRC, w/black guard) that's not as nice an instrument, unfortunately.

    I don't see what the big deal is . . . I've only bought ONE guitar because of the color and it WAS pink.

    About 15 years ago, I was in Bluebond Guitars in Philly when a guy brought in a "Hello Kitty" Squire Strat to sell. The shop bought it for something like $100 and I immediately bought it from them for $125. My daughter was five or six and I thought that this might encourage her to play. It didn't but I took it home and did a set up. I liked the way that it played and sounded so I used it for a few songs in a show. It's still in my basement and my daughter is getting ready to graduate high school.

    Not as a sure permanent weapon in the arsenal for more serious stuff but as a occasional fun joke sure

    Count me in as a fan. Must be from staring at all those guitar magazine ads as a kid in the 80s.

    I hate pink anything. It's a hideous color to my eyes.

    Nope. I would never own a pink guitar. I can't imagine the resale value being all that good on them, either.

    I also don't like those sparkly "racing" colors (orange, green, whatever) like Kiesel does on their guitars. It just looks tacky.

    The best finishes for me are either a natural stained finish, a plain white/black/blue, etc. finish like on your typical Strat, or certain quilt/flame top finishes.

    I love pink guitars but it really all depends on the shade.
    My Pink Paisley Tele always gets tons of compliments when I break her out, and so does my Burgundy Mist Metallic, but that’s not really pink.

    Interesting story . . . I used to race motocross. Back in the mid-80's, there was a 20 round pro series in baseball and football stadiums. The last round, I believe in Rose Bowl in Pasadena, included a final 20 lap race with only the winners of the years other races. At the time, these guys were all "factory sponsored". They were employees of the motorcycle companies and worn gear in their team colors. Mostly, red for Honda, Yellow for Yamaha and green for Kawasaki.

    There was a brass young rider name Brock Glover. He rode in his regular gear that day but when he came out for this "Race of Champions" he showed up head to toe in hot pink. Helmet, goggles, jersey, gloves, pants and boots. Nobody had ever seen anything like it.

    Well . . . Sure enough, Glover wins the race. The season is over. Everyone goes home for the winter. When we started racing again in the spring, every track in the country was filled with riders decked out in pink. Even conservative guys like me . . . I wore pink gloves and goggles that year. It was everywhere. I always wondered what would have happened if Brock had finished ninth . . .
