Guitar Hero Guitars For The Ladies, Courtesy Of Aly & AJ
How many females visit our site? We're guessing, as is the case with most gaming sites and despite what the recent statistics say, not many. But hey, there's gotta be a few of you out there, and the guys now have a Christmas present idea if their girlfriends are Guitar Hero and/or Rock Band lovers.
Pictured here are Aly and AJ with their custom-designed guitars that should work with both the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchise. As far as we know, these are the first two custom guitars specifically designed for the ladies, and the accessories will become available for the PS2 and Wii for $69.99 some time next month. Aly and AJ appeared on the E! Network to talk about their love of Guitar Hero and show off their guitars; the girls designed the pieces themselves. If you want to check out each guitar individually, head on over to VideoGamesBlogger and check 'em out, along with a couple videos. Performance Designed Products (PDP) will handle the production of these two guitars, and we remind you again that they're only for the PS2 and Wii versions of the games in question. We have no idea why they're not being made for next-gen versions...maybe we should ask the girls.
Anyway, the game industry has been trying to appeal to the female demographic for years now, and they seem to have hit the jackpot with the explosion of the music/rhythm genre. If any genre needed women-oriented accessories, it's this one.
