    Why not...if you own it you ll get more heads turned and most of the women would think that you are cool....dude even a hello kitty guitar in a death metal setting looks badass:D....on the shell pink matter now...that particular color looks seriously badass though....with a white or mint green pickguard and a few battle scars here and there?One of the very best strat colours bar none....definitely after the white and vintage white ties in second place with sonic blue......

    I do! I found this fugly beast in a second hand shop for $150. I slapped a pinup girl decal on it, I guess to butch it up a little.

    The original neck was beyond saving, so it's got a Fender neck now. I gig with it often! It most frequently comes with me to jams, because it has a magical bond with my Pro Junior that I drag with me to jams.

    Absolutely. It's not my first choice, but the right Strat? All day long.

    One of my favorite guitars belongs to a friend. Shell pink custom shop with a Floyd Rose trem. He stenciled on the outside of the case "Pink Floyd."

    It's an amazingly cool guitar. Strats work in those odd pastel colors.

    I don't care what color it is. So, yes.

    I had a burgundy pink guitar. It was pink but showed just a hint of purple. Honestly, I loved going out to play it because there would always be some guy making comments about how it was a girlie guitar, at least until after my set, then they only said great job. I think you are self conscious about your playing. I would love to have another guitar in some sort of pink because it’s fun to go to a blues jam and wipe the floor with the guys who make fun of it.

    Twisted Sister rocked the crap out of pink. Dee wore way more pink than this both times I saw him.

    Do people still make fun of girly colors? That's a little old fashioned, don't you think?

    Yes. I'd say that even the concept of girly colors is outdated.

    Yeah I’d say it should be outdated, but there’s always one guy between 50 and 70 years old, that’s had too much beer, and thinks he’s being funny. I love those guys. They always stop though after you start laying it down. Beware the guy with a pink, purple, or polka dot guitar as he probably knows how to play.

    I'm too old to care what other people think about such things.

    That's presuming I would buy one in the first place. If I owned one, sure . But the chances of that happening aren't real good
