Vintage guitar ads featuring hot chicks with big hair

Vintage ad for B.C. Rich guitars 1989.
Today’s post from yours truly is going to take you on a trip down memory lane to a time when magazines were the main communication device for rock and roll. Though some great rock oriented print magazines do still exist, for at least four decades from the 60s through the 90s magazines were what you spent your money on so you could be sure to get the recommended daily amount of rock and roll information, get fan club info, and pull out centerfolds of a young David Lee Roth to hang on your wall—right next to whatever else covered up the ugly wallpaper in the room you spent your teenage years in.

If you’re a guitar loving gearhead and also a fan of girls, then you’re going to get an especially good kick out of the images in this post that feature the famous “Dean Girls” who helped sell guitars for Dean in a series of ads in the late 70s and 80s, as well as some racy images used by B.C. Rich. All of the images in the post have pretty consistent themes that include bikinis, big 80s hair and lots of skin. Oh, and there’s guitars too. Though there’s really nothing particularly risqué about a girl in a bikini holding a guitar, some of the images are probably NSFW. YAY!

A sheepskin-covered guitar by Dean. According to legend, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top called guitar desinger Dean Zelinsky when he was drunk at a Def Leppard after party. According to Zelinsky, Gibbons told him that he was sending him some sheepskins for him to attach to a guitar. And the rest as they say is history.
