That really is hilarious. I wonder how much he had to pay Fender?

I noticed you guys seem to like Strats with 21 frets. I'm a small-fingered vulgarian, so I need 22 frets, and 24 would be even better.

They're working with Rick Ruben for their upcoming album, and his name is basically giant dollar signs to record labels and gear companies. Fender just wants their share of Ruben Bucks.
