The guitar still conveys the ultimate sense of cool in pop culture. Of course, it also gets taken advantage of. Two cases in point: Justin Bieber’s newest release features the teeny bopper with a guitar—although no guitar music appears on his record. And the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant chain has just announced that its skater punk rat mascot will be better represented going forward as a modern-day guitar-wielding rodent. So, when in doubt, apparently, add a guitar.
