    I know this question does not pertain to Ibanez products but ive seen discussion here before about the Fernandes Sustainer system. I recently purchased a RetroRocket Elite guitar with the sustainer single coil and it work great except that there is a 50 second delay from when you first plug in...

    Looking for tips, advice, suggestions regarding installing a sustainiac/fernandes 401 on a JEM 70v SFG. I have a fernandes revolver with FSK401 but i'd like to have it on a JEM instead. I could also drop that idea and just buy a sustainiac for a fresh installment. Any comments will be...

    Hello people, I am having some problems installing the Fernandes 401 sustainer in my Ibanez RGXVV. I can't seem to get any sound from either the neck or bridge pick up when the sustainer is turned off. When the sustainer is on however, it works as it should. Another weird thing is the volume...

    Hello all! I've always gotten really good advice here, so I was hoping you all could help me with a conundrum I've been struggling with for the past few days. I have a guitar that the previous owner seems to have clamped down way too hard on the nut, and left a dent (more like a slice) all...

    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. 2 things- 1) The sustainer switch functions are switched- meaning when the mode selector switch is...

    Does anyone know of a pedal sustainer that sounds as good as the fernandes kit???? I've seen (and heard) tons of compression/sustainers but not really into the compression sideof the pedal. I know some of you will say to just turn the compression down but it still sounds different!! Just...

  11. Pickups & wiring
    Hello folks, I'm currently wiring a Fernandes Sustainer FSK101 in my Jem70v, it comes with that regular 5-way switch from Ibanez, not the VLX91, the standard Indo stuff. I'm having some doubts about wiring the switch. My Jem's wiring looks like this: But the sustainer's wiring is like this...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    Hello folks, I was wondering, is it possible to add the Fernandes Sustainer FSK401 Board features to the FSK101 Board? I mean, like the intensity pot, and mixed mode switch. Also I wanna remove the switches from the board and add some wire, so that I can change their position, would this be...
  13. Pickups & wiring
    Hi folks, I wanted to know how good or bad the FSK101 sounds when not in sustainer mode. You know, just regular HB. Also, is it splitable? Is it like the 401 with a dummy coil? or is it a real HB under the cover?

    Hey, Folks. Just want some input here. I have a 2001 Fernandes 7string Revolver. This has the sustainer and a Humbucker for pickups. I do like this guitar a lot but I'm not really a fan of the Sustainer. It's a cool effect but I feel it takes away a lot of the tone from the guitar. So...
