  This is by far the ultimate Guitar upgrade! Most upgrades change one Pick up for a better Pick up and achieve minimal sound improvements. But when you install a Fernandes Sustainer you will have a secret weapon in your arsenal that will drive your fans nuts! And you still have a high quality pickup when its not turned on!

Since the 1960?s, electric guitarists have been left scratching their heads, seeking an effective way to control sustain and feedback. Behold!
The FERNANDES SUSTAINER TM? puts that power right at your fingertips with just the flick of a switch. Bust out texture and tonal coloring ala Hendrix at any level of volume with our patented technology. Use the Sustainer on single notes, use it on chords, adjust it to give swells or for a gradual decay to the ?sustain?.

What is the Fernandes Sustainer?

The FERNANDES SUSTAINER TM is a uniquely designed electronic system that enables the controlled sustain of any single or group of notes within the guitar?s sound range. At your discretion, strings will emit sound at a consistent intensity until stopped, regardless of output and/or location, even if the guitar is not connected to an amplifier!

How does it work?

The patented FERNANDES SUSTAINER TM system generates a magnetic field causing the strings of the guitar to vibrate.
Poweredby a 9-Volt battery, the interaction of the bridge humbucking pickup(B), the Sustainer Circuit Board(C) and the neck Sustainer Driver pickup(A), projects magnetic pulses that continuously vibrate the strings of the guitar, the same way an amplifier would at extreme volumes, yet totally controlled! The result is infinite sustain and/or feedback using sparkly clean or loud distorted settings without the need for excessive volume or extra outboard gear!

Modes

01 Harmonic Mode:
Within seconds, the pitch of the ringing note(s) will rise to the 5th natural harmonic.

02 Natural Mode:
The note(s) will continue to ring its natural fundamental tone as long as the string(s) are free to vibrate and the Sustainer System is on.

03 Mix Mode:
Available on select models including our FSK-401 Sustainer Kit, the Mix mode blends the Natural and Harmonic Mode to harmonize indefinitely every ringing note creating a harmonized feedback effect.

What can the sustainer do for you?

Enhance your creativity with the Fernandes Sustainer TM. Use with any combination of gear in your arsenal of effects, amp modelers and home recording equipment. Discover new sounds as you explore the world of controlled sustain and feedback.
How do you get natural sustain using digital effects?
You can?t! It?s The Fernandes Sustainer that makes this possible!

A few words of wisdom
SteveVai
The Fernandes Sustainer gives my guitar playing a whole new dimension. As a matter of fact it?s sort of a dimension of slow motion. I actually can play long slow notes now.

Steve Vai

TheEdge U2 Sustainer
My Fernandes Sustainer guitar gives me infinite sustain as it should be--with control and musicality.

The Edge / U2

KerryKing
With the Fernandes Sustainer I think I?ve scared all of the other animals away. The sounds of hell just became more interesting.
Kerry King / SLAYER
Rudolf1webTH
Nothing else can do what a Fernandes Sustainer system does. It's unique! It's Great! Thanks Fernandes.

Rudolf Schenker / SCORPIONS

DannyLohner1
The Fernandes Sustainer is great for creating ambient textures that sound more interesting and organic than a synth would.

Danny Lohner / NINE INCH NAILS

AndreasKisser
The feeling of controlling the feedback on the guitar is amazing. The Fernandes Sustainer has opened huge doors to take Sepulture's music to a higher level.

Andreas Kisser / SEPULTURA

Robert
Since using my Fernandes Sustainer, I have become the life and soul of any and every party. Guys look at me anxiously from corners of the room, while fawning bimbettes seek my opinions on the fetishisings of music's inherent and delineated meanings.
Robert Fripp / KING CRIMSON
AdrianBelew
Suddenly it's like holding a live wire in your hand. The guitar becomes alive. The Sustainer makes every note you hit sustain and I love the harmonic mode.
Adrian Belew / KING CRIMSON
SteveLukather
I love the thing, it?s really cool. It?s a great show biz tool as well as a musical tool and when I go up to that high octave it sounds like the hole of my C*** screaming as loud as it possibly can. The Fernandes Sustainer moves mountains.
Steve Lukather / TOTO
reeves_gabrels1
Since 1996, when I got my Fernandes Sustainer, I have not done a gig or a recording without it. It's made the electric guitar the living, breathing thing I've always wanted it to be.
Reeves Gabrels / DAVID BOWIE BAND
LeeRanaldo
As someone for whom feedback is the lifeblood, things have just improved dramatically with the advent of the Fernandes Sustainer. The first significant advance in guitar technology in a long time. Now I need not approach the amp for great sheets of sustain, and I can choose the tonal color as well. Fernandes guitars play great, that's why I've always used them...... they look great too
Lee Ranaldo / SONIC YOUTH
DuffMcKagan3
Finally, after coming off stage with the new Sustainer System...I can say 'Hey feedback, how does it feel to be my bitch?'
Duff McKagan / VELVET REVOLVER / ALICE IN CHAINS
SteveStevens
When looking to expand the musical palette of Sonic Wisdom.... The
Fernandes Sustainer will take you to a whole new horizon.
Steve Stevens
FrankMrino
The Fernandes Sustainer is the single most useful and satisfying invention that I have had the pleasure to use on an electric guitar. This thing works?period! For thirty years I moved mountains of gear around and built my own amps to get sustain like this, and even all of that didn?t come close to what I can get with this thing. For an electric psychedelic guitarist like myself, the Fernandes Sustainer doesn?t just add to my sound, it defines it.
Frank Marino / MAHOGANY RUSH
mike_c
The Fernandes Sustainer is unreal! Controlled feedback at the flip of a switch! Bend it, throw it or slide the sucker across the stage and it?s still going with great sound! Unreal.
Mike Clark / SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
DeanPleasants
The Sustainer guitar has opened a whole new world of fun for me. I use it on the clean tone for harmonic swells and freaky things with my space effects ok !!ooooh baby, look out!!
Dean Pleasants / SUICIDAL TENDENCIES / INFECTIOUS GROOVES
KennyHickey
The Sustainer is something that became necessary due the incessant problem of getting different feedback in different halls every night. Now I can get feedback in a lower or higher octave whenever I want to, even with a clean tone.
Kenny / TYPE O NEGATIVE
AlainJohannes
I haven?t been this excited about a guitar in a long time. The Sustainer system is amazing and is already unlocking sounds and ideas that were not physically possible before. My interest in Indian phrasing and wind instruments has finally found a channel in your guitars. Well done and thank you!
Alain Johannes / CHRIS CORNELL BAND / ELEVEN
NielSchon
The Fernandes Sustainer is an incredible textural effect that has given me the ability to create new music.
Neal Schon / JOURNEY
SteveHackett
Thank you, Fernandes for finally making my dreams come true ? if there is a god of sustain ? you are it!
Steve Hackett / GENESIS
riggs_1
The Fernandes Sustainer guitar is the only guitar from which you can drink blood and simultaneously have control of feedback and sustain.
Riggs / SCUM OF THE EARTH / ROB ZOMBIE BAND
daniel_ash1
Playing an electric guitar without the sustainer is like strawberries without the cream.
Daniel Ash / LOVE and ROCKETS / BAUHAUS
DaveyJohnstone
The most startling sounds from an instrument that is also really enjoyable to play. The possibilities are endless, like the Fernandes Sustainer.
Davey Johnstone / ELTON JOHN BAND
J
Feedback is good.
J. / WHITE ZOMBIE
paul_lear1
It has been a while since I have been excited about a guitar. It is a terrific instrument without the Sustainer, it really is. Turn the Sustainer on and it lives. The guitar is excited. It's like turning up the amp without the ear damage. No stress, no strain. Just turn on the SUSTAINER and let it drain.
Paul Leary / BUTTHOLE SURFERS / Producer
DavidLynch
The Fernandes Sustainer.....point it west and it keeps on keeping on.
David Lynch / FILM DIRECTOR
MikePost
Right from the beginning, using the Fernandes Sustainer Guitars has opened up a whole new family of textures that I will be using in scoring television shows.
Mike Post / VAN HALEN PRODUCER / TELEVISION COMPOSER
steve_hunter1
I find it mysterious and uncanny that I feel exactly the same way Robert Fripp does about the Sustainer. Well, except for maybe that fetishist part.
Steve Hunter/ LOU REED / PETER GABRIEL / ALICE COOPER / TRACY CHAPMAN
JoeBarresi
Plays great, feels great, and has so much sustain you can go out, have a bite, come back, and you?d STILL be hearing it.
Joe Barresi / PRODUCER / ENGINNER / WEEZER/ QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, FU MANCHU/ KYUSS
ChanKindchal
I have every pedal known to man, and getting sweet sustain short of kneeling in front of my amp has been a white elephant. Pedals only artificially recreate that type of sound and always come off weak. Finally I have controlled sustain coming directly from the strings where I can manipulate it smoothly and safely for everyone?s listening enjoyment. My Fernandes Sustainer guitar also looks badass which is very important as we all know.
Chan Kinchla / Guitar and Prettyboy for BLUES TRAVELER
ZimZum
The Fernandes Sustainer makes my guitar sing as if the note were coming straight from my soul. It's definitely a HI-FI creation in a lo-fi world.
Zim Zum
BruceRicherd
My Fernandes Sustainer guitar is an essential part of my musical signature.
Bruce Rickerd / CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
Lupus
The Fernandes Sustainer is pure voodoo magic. I don?t know how it works, but whatever it is, I like it! I don?t need to know all that tech stuff, with the team at Fernandes behind me, I know it sounds good, even when I have no clue how it all works.
Lupus / BLOOD HOUND GANG
AndresAGONY
The Fernandes Sustainer gives my soloing meaning and feel, it's also an amazing creativity booster!
Andres Jaramillo / AGONY
MikeScott1
The Fernandes Sustainer gives you rich controlled sustain so thick and consistent you could almost sit on it.
Mike Scott / NEW POWER GENERATION
