Fender has done numerous promo guitars for companies. Harley Davidson, Monster, Hello Kitty (cult classic), etc. So it does not surprise me. I had not seen the Playboy guitar before though and the material quality is above the norm for these types of guitars.

This is a new one on me as well; I only remember the final version of the Playboy 40th Anniversary model that had the Monroe nude centerfold drawing airbrushed across the body/pickguard.

Does anyone else find it a bit weird that Fender would make a guitar which is basically a tribute to a porno mag?

Though I wouldn't have anything to do with it, no, it doesn't surprise me at all. It all comes down to the almighty $ and Playboy has been a huge moneymaker for decades.
