I was told by Maniac Music that the sustainers have lasted like 35 years, not sure how true that is, but I read on all about FLO that the Fernandez sustainer was installed in 1999

that's like 21 years in operation assuming he is still using the same one

I was a bit concerned about having one installed, thinking maybe the lifespan isn't very long, but this makes me want to do it

I doubt it is the same one, not because he wore it out, but because he likes to experiment. He has stated multiple times the Fernandes Sustainer is inconsistent from one unit to the next, so it is highly likely he has changed them over the years as he finds one that sounds more to his liking.

Basically it's true. I've seen and spoken with steves tech and it's truly a mess under the guard. Every show it needs to be checked for moisture and stuff. Not sure if flo has got the same sustainer today. Actually I don't think so...
