Are you sure it's the guitar that's retarded? And why tell us what design is on the pickguard? It's fine.

I agree... You spelt Whammy wrong, and the pitch is supposed to go down...

lol the whole point of a whammy bar is to shift the pitch down, you can shift the pitch up using bends. there are of course floyd rose double locking trems that shift the pitch up and down but they aren't standard on many fenders at all.

yeah, and you misspelled input too. and i'm 90% sure that:

1) you couldn't get a fender custom shop.
2) they don't put flames on the pickguard.
3) you don't deserve a fender custom shop, if you got one.
