FERNANDES LE SERIES

The Fernandes LE Series were Stratocaster style electrics introduced around 1992 and were made until 1998. The LE-2 models have a traditional 7.23" fingerboard radius - the LE-1 models have a flatter 14" fingerboard radius. Otherwise the LE-1 and LE-2 models are the same.

FERNANDES LE-2

The Fernandes LE-2 was made between 1991 and 1998. The LE-2 was based on the vintage Stratocaster design and aimed to replicate the classic feel and tone of that instrument.

The LE-2N had an ash body (with brighter tone) and a tortoiseshell pickguard. Pickups were three Fernandes VS-4 single coils.
