Fernandes Sustainer 401 or 101?

Hey everyone. I was a member a while back and reviewed some stuff, but lost my old username. Anyway, which do you prefer. I have an original Fernandes Sustainer FSK-401in white (I found it in a store and they didn't know it was valuable, marked for $200) and I love it. Installed in a very beat up ibanez rg 350mp. Ive heard some prefer the 101, which is cheper and without as many features. Some say that makes it more reliable, some that it is not featured enough. So which one?

The 101--because the circuit board is the same, and you can mod it with the 401 features.

So it costs less than the 401 with the mod?

The 401 doesn't have mods. It has the same circuit board as the 101--meaning you can mod the 101 PCB with the features of the 401....if you know what to do. There are tutorials on the Internet on how to do it.

No, I meant does the 101 with the mod cost less than the 401? I just said it a bit confusingly.

Less. You can't buy a 101 with mods. You buy the 101, then the few components to add to the PCB to give it 401 features. You'd probably spend less that 20 bucks on the components.
