fernandes sustainer 401 and 101

im having sort of dilemma wether to go for a 401 or a 101 fernandes sustainer
for a H-S-H positioning system

id like to get th 401 system cuz there are more features ie; the tone intensity knob and the mixed harmonics mode... only problem is that 401 has only a single coil system to put in the neck position, but the 101 doesnt have the sustainer intensity knob and the mixed harmonix mode...

so if i get a 401, do i get another single coil pickup and ducktape it with the 401's single coil system to fit the neck humbucker position?

Re: fernandes sustainer 401 and 101

If you're dandy with a soldering iron, they're the same board. The pads are there for the intensity pot on the 101, you just need to solder wires on and attach a pot, and then swap the 2 position mode switch for a 3 position one. $20 worth of parts will save you $80 of marketing.
