Fernandes sustainiac /rare/ 1989-1992 japan.
Fernandes FRS-85 with 18V SUSTAINAC.
The guitar is from the “above average” model lineup, not only because of the presence of the sustainer, but also in many other things.
For example, unlike the popular FERNANDES FGZ series, in spite of the resemblance, this guitar has a more comfortable neck, a narrower one, perfect for a shred (high-speed game), the body is made from a selection (do not be surprised) of the best maple, due to which the sound is more dense and elastic.
18V SUSTAINIAC is more powerful than 9V Sustainer and very RARE!
This SUSTAINAC system has 3 mode.
Original pickups are very good, the sound is not soapy, the exhaust is high, they have a good frequency balance, they are beautiful at overload, especially the high-level.
The Body and Neck were carfully serviced. Neck is straight. Frets left about 90%.
Please see the photos.

It is really rare guitar - only one avaliable on e-aby now - overpriced and in pure condition.
The guitar is already out of production. Recommended to those who were looking for good quality ST!
The number of extremely distributed items is also small.
Reason of selling - do not use it often (start playing different music on my hollow body guitar).
The price is the last (I will not sell it cheaper - better to keep it in collection).
P.S. I will consider the exchange to same level guitar.
Only cash upon receipt.
