I've searched and searched and searched, but cant figure out how steve did his sustainer. Of course, its a fernandes sustainer, but how did he get a white one?

Ive found this , and steves looks like its related to the single coil one, but with an added single coil.This is a copy of his(which is what im making)with the white sustainer and an added single coil. Im not sure if the other single coil even works, but it could possibly. Any ideas? All the help's appreciated.

Thanks, Andy

no idea. But remember, its a replica!

Ok, so heres the plan. Im going to get the FSK-401 kit and paint the single coil white(still not to clear on how im going to do this)and use that blank to fill in the gap. I realize that the "Sustainer" logo will be gone, but thats the price im willing to pay.

Probably back when he had Flo fitted, there wasnt a humbucker version...

And since he said most those things aint that stable (they had a lot of trouble with the triple neck), and he really likes the one in Flo, he never dared change it...

And the humbucker version doesn't look as cool either:).

Hey 'Andy43'.
Why don't you get in touch with Ikebe-Gakki in Japan.

They can obviously get white FSK-401's(even though Fernandes 'claims' not to make them,lol) as they currently do their own VWH-Sustainer modded guitar which has a white driver.
We've all seen painted pickups before and without exception they look terrible.

This is one of Ikebe's 7VWH Sustainer-modded guitars.
