.....If Fender DID buy out Jackson, Im quitting guitar and music. Would hate to see the same model of a jackson, the Jackocaster, sold every year with little or no change.

nope...not really a thing you can do. pretend to play over a pre-recorded solo by someone else, is an option, i suppose.

lmao ^ as has been stated earlier unreal, you just get used to it, you can always go for thicker strings if its really a problem, make sure you're doing your bends with more than one string, i always do it with at least two

Thicker strings will actually make it tougher on the fingers, not easier. Practice and grow calluses and if you absolutely must, use lower gauge strings. 9's should do it (unless you're already using 9's in which case suck it up)
