Hey everyone! I was thinking of getting a new guitar, and I saw the 'Fernandes Vertigo Elite'. There is one for sale locally for 350 bucks, which is extremely cheap compared to the retail price of 1300 that I see everywhere. One thing bu Also, have any of you had any experience with one of these guitars?

here is the guitar in question:



And according to the fernandes website, it looks like this (notice that there is a pickguard on this one, why not on the one for sale? Also the bridge pickup is an EMG, but not on the one in my local ad :



I don't get it!?

I would get it, looks sexy.

It's probably because the one locally is an older model?

edit: the vertigo x (in link) retails for around 400...

Naw, look at the inlays. Also, the Elite is the only one fitted with a Sustainer pickup, and the X isn't.

Also, if nobody has any experience with this specific guitar or any fernandes guitars, anybody have any experience with the sustainer? How is it?

I don' think that guitar has a sustainer on it. It doesn't have the on/off switch or the mode switch (at least, from what I can see).
