Re[2]: Sustainers and Sustainiac...

Don't forget Alan Hoover and Sustainiac... 
His product works the same as the Fernandez... (they "borrowed" his design 
or a 
portion of it) and he's currently working on a Strat version which will 
use the 
middle pickup as a driver. I can't quote exactly, but believe a fully 
pickguard w/your pickups sent to him for the mods will come in a well 
$400... maybe less than $300.

The (old) Sustainiac email address is... maniac@netdirect.net 

Alan Hoover posts to this list frequently so you might query him directly

yeah, and I hear that to buy the sustainor unit with mods on a guitfiddle 
about the same price as the whole works. Frankly,I have been disappointed 
the conversations with Fernandes reps. on the phone. I guess they are doing
alright without me.
Mayby a group buy? Not instigated by me.
