Striking visuals and uncompromising tone.
Rock-and-roll has always been about attitude and style. Fernandes has taken that spirit and melded it with their innovation to create the Monterey Elite electric guitar. When you play this renowned single-cutaway, there's no doubt you'll be ready to rock. Boasting a classic design with exceptional playability, the Monterey accentuates the recognizable shape of musical history but with modern touches added for the uncompromising player. The Monterey Elite features a carved 5-A Canadian flame maple top, mahogany body and tapered set-neck, Locking tuners, Graph Tech Trem Nut, and Tune-O-Matic-style bridge. This model also boasts abalone binding and trapezoid inlays in an ebony 22-fret fingerboard, gold hardware, and brings the power of infinite sustain with a Fernandes Sustainer in the guitar's neck position.
The patented Fernandes Sustainer system generates a magnetic field causing the strings to vibrate endlessly, giving you creative ways to control sustain and feedback. Used by Steve Vai, The Edge, Slash, Kerry King, Neil Schon, Robert Fripp, and Paul Gilbert, the Sustainer allows you to produce silky smooth Hendrix-like textures and tonal colorings at any volume level without extra outboard gear. The Sustainer lets you add swells or a gradual decay to single notes or chords while performing outrageous hammer-on slides, whammy-bar dive bombing, or two-hand tapping.
