    I got a chick guitar for a good deal. I'm surprised it's actually a decent guitar. I straightened the neck so there's like .002" neck relief, and lowered the action so the last fret is around 3/64th". The neck doesn't need a shim, pretty nice. Very minimal buzz and only a couple notes fretting out, the usually 10th fret and one around the 15th and the 7th fret buzzes a little. Not bad for a cheap guitar. So Ima hot rod it and make it look pretty and flip it for a profit. I'm leveling the frets right now. What am I doing buying girl guitars off craigslist? I don't know maybe I got problems.

    Finished, all it needs is the nut slots cut and intonation set. That's all there is to it.
    Anyone wana buy it let me know. It'll make a perfect gift.

    Daisy Rock is a brand with a strong reputation, no wonder it's a good guitar.

    I don't mean to miss the point, but what in the hell is a "chick" guitar?

    Daisy Rock is a brand of guitars targeted at girls.

    http://www.daisyrock.com

    The brands tag line is "girl guitars" and they include features such as lighter bodies and slimmer necks make them better suited to females.

    The owner of DR is the wife of the guy that owns/runs Schecter -- she saw a gap in the market for good affordable guitars for girls and uses the same supply chain and factories as Schecter.

    I dig it. And while I see what is meant by a "girl" guitar...the old glam metal bands would have loved that thing.

    You don't have to look too far into my collection to see that I would for sure rock that guitar. I do not have have a problem with a guitar being targeted at women, but don't leave me out as I am a huge fan of pink and sparkly. And women.

    I love sparkle tops and light guitars but I ain't a chick, or a spring chicken for that matter.

    Hey... who can't dig a Chic that plays a mean guit-fiddle... especially if her axe is bling-nacious :)

    The industry formula is, "Shrink it and pink it."
    But i know what you're saying... :)

    So let's break some stereotypes here:




    No pink guitars, no low cut tank tops, just some great guitar playing on some
    great guitars by some great guitar players (who just happen to be female).

    What a great idea. I guess it won't be long before the other makers start with their own models.

    If I didn't already have a Disney (by Washburn) Hannah Montana Secret Star 3/4 size t type I'd be interested.

    Traded a dumpster rescue acoustic straight up for it, so other than driving to make the swap I didn't spend any money.

    And I worked out a rocking version of Party in the USA (not a bad song actually!). I cover a Miley Cyrus song with a pre-drug and slutty Miley Cyrus guitar. And, to make it absolutely clear, I DO NOT TWERK!

    Usually pull that out later closer to closing time, once the crowd is sufficiently lubricated to enjoy it.

    And surprisingly good, needed a strings change and knobs but after that was good.

    Looks 80's hair band to me, which is almost the same thing I suppose.
