Looks like an early Fernandes Revolver, before they changed the look and headstock with the "Pro" version.

Would have sold for $699 circa 2000 - 2004

The guy who can really help you out is Ned Evett nedevett.com as it will most likely have been sold from his website www.fretlessguitar.com though it is a bit of a puzzle being red, options were black or silver.

Does it have a sustainer fitted?

Thanks for the response.

Yeah i've been searching fernandes electrics on google and google images for a while now and I just can't seem to find this shape. The revolvers now seem to be strat style......did they definately have the Les Paul double cutaway style previously ? I can't find a serial number or ID mark anywhere on the exterior of the body of this thing.

As far as a sustainer goes, the guitar appears to have what looks like an extra switch fitted to the front (red switch) but I can't see anything like a circuit board under the backplate. Maybe it had one which was removed but i'm really not sure.

That was a puzzle, the extra switch.

Without the sustainer you could knock off $200 from the original selling price.

At the moment specialist guitar prices are on the floor, I've been advising quite a few sellers to wait until better times, if possible.

Any news from Ned?
