Re: Sustainers and Sustainiac...
Don't forget Alan Hoover and Sustainiac...
His product works the same as the Fernandez... (they "borrowed" his design
portion of it) and he's currently working on a Strat version which will
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... email@example.com
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.
