For me, Joe Satriani IS great virtuoso. his albums and style of playing are the inspirations for all guitarist all around the world. nobody can forget “always with me, always with you” as its rhythm intro plays. And the best part of satriani is his personality. you can see how humble he is and always encourage other guitarists to keep their spirit in learning and playing guitar, no matter how hard, with any methods we like.
While until now i still keep my saving to get a fine Telecaster, i currently use Fernandes, a 90’s guitar japanese made. Old enough with good treatment. i bought it from my friend’s store about a half year ago.
It is a good guitar with stratocaster tone. with a reasonable price, i got a worth maple wood guitar japanese made. the pickup is Fernandes’, the nuts and the bridge are Gotoh. this is Fernandes Revolver FR-55T Made in Japan 90’s era. Sugoi !
hmm.. what can i say more about this guitar? it well-suited on my hands although i prefer my other custom-made guitar which has smaller guitar neck.
yes, i’m a little guitar guy with bunch of difficulties in learning guitar and still wondering how to play it in best style i can get.
But, indeed it is an old guitar. it has noise as i guess it’s because the circuitry needs to be repaired. renew them with the newest technology. yes, DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan’s stuff would be the best i can get to optimize this guitar performance.
well, i might need to change the bridge, it rusted a little bit. and a lot more i want for enhancements.
but,… on the second thought, i’d like to keep it classic. it would sound like that i have something valuable from the past. i won’t try to make it a “worn-out guitar” by scratching it here and there. i don’t have a heart to do it. when i need a new one, I WILL get one.

here i upload some pictures of it, and what i got form digging information about this guitar is very interesting. Fernandes guitar has been evolving rapidly. they have fine-crafted guitars with good woods and fine materials. Here are some the newest Fernandes products you might be interested in.
nowadays, Fernandes guitar is claimed as rocker’s need while i have the old one with the blues tone. and i think it’s because the pickups evolution. Fernandes Guitars have sustainer system inside them which is likely similar to an E-Bow.i mean the latest ones have them. here the close picture
of my Fernandes Revolver pickups and bridge.
