Hello Kitty meets Buddy Holly

Cultural icons clash in Fender Stratocaster

Nothing is sacred. Even the venerable Fender Stratocaster has fallen prey to the evil Hello Kitty.

The iconic guitar has the traditional Hello Kitty script/logo scrawled across the back, like a criminal's calling card. 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.
