Hello Kitty meets Buddy Holly

Cultural icons clash in Fender Stratocaster

But if you or your teenage daughter have outgrown your pink phase, Popgadget notes that there's also a black version of the "Fender Hello Kitty Stratocaster" that comes with ransom-note-style lettering to match your darker moods. Clearly, no one is safe.
