    I don't smoke. I don't know anyone who does -- who the heck smokes these days?

    Yes, that's what you're really paying for... that tell-tale "cling". Sure. BTW, do we know that Fender even sanctions this nosense?

    My guess is that these types of products are just licensing agreements. Some company (lighter company, clothing company like Lucky Brand, etc...) comes to Fender and says we want to license your trademark for a product and we will pay x to do so.

    Since FMIC puts their premium logo on low end garbage instruments why not also put it on high end consumer goods?

    Man could you imagine losing a $1300 light?

    Woman of your dreams asks for a light, sorry lady I can't risk it.

    You have to remember that the general population of this forum is not who Fender targets here. Wanna bet that Clapton has one? Jeff Beck? How about Jim Irsay? Drop in a bucket for those guys. Personally I think Fender has it right-You can buy an Affinity Strat for $200 or a Custom Shop Strat for $5,000 and everything in between. They cater to a lot of markets and overall I think we are lucky for it.
