K-On! Fuels Guitar Boom

Otaku are displaying their usual suggestibility in response to schoolgirls with guitars anime K-On!, and have launched into a guitar buying frenzy.

It transpires that the Amazon.co.jp “people who bought this also bought this” feature is displaying exclusively K-On! music and Blu-ray discs:

It appears any number of very ronery guitarists are now practicing, or possibly merely displaying, the Fender-Japan JB62/LH/3TS the nation over, with its $750 price tag no obstacle…

Doubtless the maker is rubbing its hand with glee at the patronage.

You can see the page in question here.

Of course, it may be the case that they are only looking, but not buying, but given what we have already seen this seems improbable.
