    The following link will show why I personally hate Fernandes guitars. It's just a personal thing and I completely understand that guitars are up to personal taste............BUT..

    We've got to stop the insanity! These guitars, the stupid daisy shaped guitars, etc. They're rediculous!

    Believe it or not, there are people that would say the same thing about someone wanting to play a guitar with red and white stripes all over it.

    from what the Fernandes rep said, they took quite a few orders for those at the Star Wars Celebration back in May...i'd probably say that, too, if i was him...some of those Star Wars geeks that stopped by the booth were pretty good players, too. better than this Star Wars geek, at least...

    i kinda like the Fernandes Ravelle, a little different spin on the retro look...

    I've played a couple of Fernandes strats, and was surprised by how well they play too when they've been setup properly.
    A while ago a friend of mine at a music store got one in on a trade and offered it to me pretty cheap.
    I took a bit too long to make up my mind and it was on hold by then.
    Would have made a good backup guitar.

    I owned a Randy Rhoads flying V by Fernandes and it was the best guitar I've ever played!

    I use to have a Strat style Fernandes I think it was like early 90s or something and it was a great guitar for the money ($200). In my opinion it was a lot better quality than the Standard Mex made Fenders strats.

    Just so you guys know, I wasn't try to trash Fernandes. It's more of the concept of the Star Wars guitar that I was trashing.

    If Ernie Ball, Gibson, Peavey, etc. did the same thing, I'd trash them too.

    I'm sure Fernandes' other guitars are fine.

    I just hate it when companies "trick up" their guitars like that.

    Oh, come on now.....those are great! (yeah right!). Surely, anything that Eddie comes up with can't be cheesy!

    Actually, I've been a little disappointed with some of those custom Wolfgangs.

    I'm actually one of those guys that likes to keep things really simple.

    To me, nothing beats a Wolfgang (standard) in black or Tobacco Sunburst with the simple white banding going around it.

    A red one runs a very close second!
