I've just managed to track down and try probably the only Fernandez
sustainer in Glasgow. Here's my reaction:
2. Whilst the contols seemed utterly barmy, I think it goes like
When the sustainer is off, the mid and br. p/ups work via the
blade switch. When the sustainer is on, the mid p/up is disabled
only the br. h/b works. The sustainer on/off is the 2-way toggle;
pots are vol, tone and sustainer sensitivity. There's a 3-way
but I've no idea what it does. Kim, Jon etc, could you confirm
4. When in sustainer mode, the output from the mid p/u is amplified
amount governed by the sensitivity) and drivien into the neck p/u.
means you can play a note and, just like with real amps, if it's
enough it'll cause feedback.
6. This means you sound like you're standing in front of a _very_loud_
Even though you're laying through headphones. I could replicate
effect that always attracted me to Boogies, without getting thrown
of my apartment.
What utterly amazes me is just how _easy_ it is to play probably my
all-time fave guitar solo, RF's "Firepower".
However, the guitar is going (used) for $900. No way. I've got to build
me one of these.... somehow!
