Fernandes FSK-401 Sustainer Kit


Well I know a bit about them, like how to use them and such.

The only problem is - Every picture I look at of the product is the same (Red box with all the equipment in it). I've searched all over for some pictures of the installation process on an Ibanez guitar H-S-H style.

1. Does this unit come with the backplates for the circuit board?
2. If anyone has bought one and taken it along with their guitar to a luthier, did they give you a dummy pickup to sit next to the single coil driver?
3. What pickup would be better to use for the Bridge position (The FGI Custom that comes with the pack or my EVO that is already in my guitar)?

Thank you

Ryan

Re: Fernandes FSK-401 Sustainer Kit


1 what you see in the picture is all you get, except for instructions.
no backplate, you have to make one.
2 It would depends on the guitar lutheir if they give you a dummy pickup but i doubt it, you can buy single coil covers with no holes online for cheap to put next to it.
3 It depends on your ears which pickup would sound better, just try them both. The problem is with the evo it wont have the connector end pins that go in the socket board, i guess you can put a bit of solder on it and adjust the solder until it fits in the circuit board. Unless theres somewhere to order them??

you can make a ghetto one with a plastic garbage can, you can find out how at http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/cavcv.htm, . or you can probably find a website that custom makes them, you just have to give them a drawing or measurements.

Ha thanks for the link, I found a person on EvilBay that can sell me an electronics cavity cover, also a person who can sell me a 6 dollar crap single coil that I can pop in next to my driver.
