  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hello friends. Well I decided to install a Fernandes Sustainer on my Jem 7VWH, hope I dont regret it because so far things aren't good. My luthier is highly skilled with wiring however it's worth asking the form before I go to the trouble of trying to return this thing. Basically he wired it...

    Hello all, ive noticed the Jem 70V has a bad rep? Why is this? Some of the complaints im seeing are such minor things that are sorted within a few minutes. Every guitar i have ever bought has needed some adjustment to suit my needs. I would certainly never complain about a guitar for these...

    Hey guys. I bought a fernandes sustainer kid a few years ago, and it was a rare white one. You can't find them anymore and I know a lot of people want their FLO replicas. I had it installed in my guitar but the guitar is no longer worth all the effort and the sustainer while it is fun is not...

    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...

    Ok i know everyone in the world is asking about the fernandes sustainer, however... It looks to me that the FSK 401 is pretty much pre wired in the box, is this the right? Where-as the FSK 101 requires a lot more electrical work as it has no pots or 5 way on it. So other than the woodwork...

    I am not sure if this is asked on here...not that i noticed at least, but does anyone know where I could find the gold tips for the ends of wires which go into the clips for the sustainer's PC board? I cannot find them, and I am waiting on Fernandes' response. The wire connector tips are not at...

    I just bought a secondhand JEM77VBK last week, and I'd really like to add a sustainer to it. I went around to some local music shops here in Tokyo that could do the Fernandes 401 mod, and they said it wouldn't be a problem. I specifically pointed out that it was for the Jem with the mirror...

    Hey, I am looking into buying a Fernandes Sustainer for my JEM and Im not which kit does the harmonic mode because some websites say both have it and others say only the 401 have it. I just need a straight answer :) Thanks!

    I am going to get a JEM7Vwh at Christmas and I want to put a Fernandes Sustainer in it. To do this, of course, you must remove one of the DiMarzio Evos and I was worried that it would effect the tone and general sound a lot... I guess my question is; will it?
  16. Pickups & wiring
    Ok well I recently got a Fernandes Sustainer FSK401 installed in my H-S-H style pickup guitar, well I decided to have the Custom FGI bridge pickup put in and my EVO taken out because I hear the FGI works better with the sustainer. Well I don't know if something was wired backwards or what but...

    I am offering my JEM 10th with Fernandes Sustainer for sale, for $3,000 firm, plus shipping. This is a killer, top notch JEM 10th. I love it, but I am refocusing my collection and selling off everything I don't use, and due to its value, this guitar stays in its case at my house, which means it...

    Ok so I bought the Fernandes Sustainer Kit Fsk-401 and I figured that it would be set up just like Vai's FLO after its installed. But instead.. the Luthier came up with the idea of making a custom pickguard to hide some route work.. I was kind of Erie about the idea.. But I figured he knew...

    The whole point of this is to have an arsenal of different sounds just like any other guitarist. I understand that what I'm doing, might seem impractical, but I've decided that it's what I want to do. Okay, here's what I wanna do. It involves buying 2 RG-350DXWHs and one RG-350EX, since I like...
