Where to buy a Fernandes sustainer?

Do you know a trustable pace where I can buy a Fernandes sustainer? Rich from Ibanezrules does not sell them.....

They should ship interationally since I am in Europe but I prefere they are placed in the US (Europe is sooooo expensive.....)

Thanks!

This place sells them and i'm pretty sure they ship internationally too;

Have you looked at the Sustainiac ?
It does the same thing and it does it better IMHO.

What's the difference between a 401 kit and a 101. From what I'm reading, it says the 101 comes with a Humbucking driver, but in the picture of the 401 kit, that shows a Humbucking too!

Does a standard 7VWH have to be routed to install one of these?

Cheers!

The 101 is a more basic circuit and as you said it has a humbucker sized driver.
The 401 comes with a Fernandes bridge humbucker (which is what you can see in the picture) to replace your standard pickup but the driver itself is a single-coil sized one,like the one on Vai's 'Flo'.

You do have to route a 7VWH for the actual sustainer electronics PCB and for the battery.You also need to drill holes from the PCB cavity through the front of the guitar for the mini-switches.

The 'Sustainiac' takes up a lot less room and has a stronger 'pull' on the strings but still requires some routing which can be hidden under the pickguard.
You can also get the 'Sustainiac' in white which you can't with the Fernandes Sustainer. They only come in Black (to the public at least).
