Fitting a sustainer?

Can anybody recommend anyone in the North West who could supply & fit a sustainer without damaging my instrument!? I'm looking into getting Neville kitted out with one, sorry if this offends anyone.

Also, I require a backstop if anyone has one up for grabs?

mmm...I wouldn't do it if I were you. Grab any other guitar instead and fit it with one. A guitar like that should be conserved untouched!

Re: Fitting a sustainer?

installing a Sustainer means you got to rout a lot of wood out of the guitar body, plus a further cavity for the battery: an irreversible slaughter.

you need serious and deep meditation before attempting to ruin such a unique piece forever. if you do, don't tell anyone.
