What are your thoughts on this guitar? How is the sustainer thing, if you've used the Elite version.

I don't really have a chance to play this guitar before I buy it, so I'd like to know how it plays and such.

i havent played that exact type... but fernades as a general rule are really shotty quality to me :S
Can't comment on the quality of Fernandes' guitars, but you could always retrofit a current guitar with the Sustainer system.

Well, its not so much the sustainer I want, It's a new guitar I need. The sustainer would be an added bonus. The Ravelle seemed nice, so, I figured I'd ask around about it.
