Here’s one more reason not to trust corporate news media: CBS News reports that, according to their 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair music poll, the guitar is the sexiest instrument to play, followed by the saxophone and the piano.
The synthesizer did not even make their list. How is that even possible?
We think that there are only three possible explanations for the inexplicable results of their poll:
- “Synthesizer’ wasn’t an option offered in the poll;
- They asked the wrong people; or
- The synthesizer is just off-the-charts sexy, so they had to exclude it from their poll, in order to avoid skewing the results.
We thought we should correct CBS’s procedural errors by doing our own poll, including ‘Synthesizer’ as an option this time, and asking an unbiased group of people, Synthtopia readers.
So that you can make an informed decision, here is a random sampling of sexy musicians, with their instrument of choice:
Now, here’s your change to set the record straight! Take our reader poll, below, and let us know what you think the sexiest musical instrument is!
To make things more interesting, we’ve separated ‘Synthesizers” into Keyboard Synthesizers, Modular Synthesizers & Keytars. And to make it a fair and honest poll, we’ve include some of the sexiest instruments of all time as competition.
