Bought mine imported from japan in 1998 cos at the time I was a huge fan of Sonic youth and Lee ranaldo had one. It's sounds like a Gibson mixed with a telecaster. It's built like a Tank and sounds amazingly! It got the coolest neck I ever had, fast and comfortable the pick up are warm but very bright and mighty. You can play everyting with from jazz to heavy noisy. For only 170 000 dollars you had one of the best guitar ever made ( the edge played one)

It's of course well known to be U2 and Lee Ranaldo's guitar but I bought mine in Japan back in 1997. This Fernandes sounds better than any $3500 Fender custom shop I tried. It's a really rare guitar!
