Bullfighter (yeah, dumb brand name) copies of the Squier Hello Kitty:

The Dakota Red and vintage white ones look nice. Do those look smaller to you than the Squiers?

Yes, you're right, these do look a shit load smaller than the real deal.

I think the kittycaster is the ultimate metal guitar; single humbucker, volume knob, hardtail. Ideal for down tuning, chugging and widdly widdly shit.

I'd say they were around 18" scale, same as those other "children s guitars" with the single coil and in built speaker.

These look sucky but I think they're fun. Unfortunately, I think they look more sucky than fun, and that's not cheap if it's 48,000 Yen, that's like 400 dollars. Even the pickguard looks inconsistent and poorly cut, just look at how they differ from guitar to guitar.

I actually sold both of my Hello Kitty guitars over the great purge of 2015 (I'm selling 3 guitars and 2 basses over the last few weeks). It's all an effort to turn my large collection of "good enough" instruments into a collection of "OMG BEST EVER" instruments. But don't worry! I kept the pickguard and Duncan Custom pickup that I took off of my very first Hello Kitty guitar. I am planning on using that to create a unique custom instrument.

My thinking: rear-routed Jazzmaster. One of the annoying things about the Hello Kitty Strat was that I couldn't get crazy with wiring because there just isn't space on a rear routed Strat body once you cover it up with the Kitty pickguard. I eventually want to put a neck pickup in there. The Jazzmaster's offset body gives me the room I need, and the 25.5" scale ensures that the pickguard will work just fine. I already have a big headstock 22-fret 25.5" neck to go with it. I just need to have the body be built. I might just go with Warmoth, their rear routed Jazzmaster body is pretty much perfect for my needs. Thanks for showing me these, though. It really helps me see how the guitar will look with different colored body colors. I'm loving the white on vintage white look, but what looks like Fiesta Red looks amazing, too. The obvious color is Neon Pink but maybe the Vintage White will be more my color.

480 Yuan, about 75 USD.

But that's a Chinese internal site, I don't think you can buy internationally. However, they do seem to have them on aliexpress for about $250.

Here's a pink one for $143, but they seem to charge about the same as the price of the guitar for shipping to where I live (I don't know about US):

Surely it's a string short?

NO.

Real men tune their guitars down, they don't play seven strings.

They do, however, play Hello Kitty guitars.
