    Hilarious!

    Did Fender make that mistake on all of the cases?
    If not, that could actually end up being a collector's
    piece.

    I'm sorry DG fans, that bright white plastic and shiny chrome, and one ply black guard just look so cheap and import like.

    If you're dumb enough to pay $5K for that, then you will and there are always some so that's why Fender offers something at that price point.

    If, on the other hand, you are all of quality and tone savvy, fiscally prudent, patient, and willing to play through a litter to find the pick, no where can you maximize your bang for the buck more than with a bottom-line priced USA Fender.

    Any chance you could point us towards the original source of this image? Just to verify it's not some photoshop prankery?
