Vortex Elite Electric Guitar
Fernandes' classic and legendary V-shape has returned by popular "metal" demand. Re-designed and revamped features alder body, finish-matching Maple Maple neck and set-thru construction with extended access to the high registers of the 24-fret Ebony fingerboard, Abalone binding diamond-shape inlays and FRT-11 locking tremolo system, the Vortex Elite brings the power to the lead guitar player. Comes equipped with the one and only EMG 81 active humbucker for full metal attack, Fernandes Sustainer, die-cast tuners and ultra-comfortable body shape.
The Vortex Elite features the Fernandes Sustainer® bringing the power of infinite sustain at an affordable price. Since the 1960's, electric guitar players have been searching for an effective way to control sustain and feedback. The Fernandes Sustainer® puts that power at your fingertips. Fernandes has a patented technology that allows players to produce Hendrix-like textures and tonal colorings at any volume level. The Sustainer works with single notes or chords and can be adjusted to give swells or a gradual decay to the sustain. The Fernandes Sustainer® is a specially designed electronic system for electric guitar that creates controllable sustain of any single or group of notes in the instrument's sound range. This means that the string(s) will ring at constant intensity indefinitely until stopped, regardless of output and location, even if your guitar is not connected to an amplifier!
What Can the Fernandes Sustainer® do for you?
Bring your creativity to new levels by using the Sustainer with any combination of gear in your arsenal of effects, amp modelers and home recording equipment. Discover new sounds exploring the world of controlled sustain and feedback. How do you get natural sustain using digital effects? The Fernandes Sustainer® is the way!
How does it work?
The patented Fernandes Sustainer® system generates a magnetic field causing the strings of the guitar to vibrate. Powered by 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 at extreme volume would do, 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!
