At least they didn't call it "Scirocko"

News item: "Beginning October 3 and continuing through December 31, any customer that purchases or leases a designated Volkswagen model from the new 2007 line — including Jetta, Jetta GLI, GTI, Rabbit, New Beetle and New Beetle Convertible — will receive their own completely customized First Act GarageMaster electric guitar that will play seamlessly through the car's existing audio system. The 2006 Jetta, Jetta GLI, GTI, Rabbit, New Beetle and New Beetle Convertible will also come with a custom-made First Act GarageMaster guitar."

Buick, meanwhile, is frantically trying to find Tiger Woods and photograph him with a ukulele.

Remember: it's not the instrument, but the context.

I saw the VW commercial, pretty cool. I love John Mayer and i think that if you are going to spend money on a brand new car its pretty cool you get a guitar thrown in too.
