Fernandes Sustainer Troubleshoot
If I could nab someone's help for a minute it would be most appreciated
I brought my old guitar to a luthier to have the fernandes sustainer fsk-401 & pickups taken out and put into an rg570.
1) The sustainer switch functions are switched- meaning when the mode selector switch is up, it turns on the harmonic mode, and when the switch is flipped down it turns on the normal note sustain mode. The on/off switch functions as it should
2) The harmonic mode doesn't work. I get a signal out of the guitar pickup normally, but it won't grab onto a note like it should. I have to pick it hard and dive down far with the bar to get the note to hold out with the harmonic, but after I lift the bar up it stops.
Everything else functions normally, when the sustainer is off all pickups function normally.
I have tried messing with the pots (which on the old guitar I had most turned up) to no avail, in fact it makes it worse.
Anybody have any problems similar to this they they have solved? The board isn't defective as I used it for years installed in my old guitar
Thanks in advance for any help anybody is able to give me.
