I didn't have enormous hopes when I ordered this guitar. I was looking for something to temporarily replace my old Ibanez Gio that's a bit worse for wear. I have to say that when I opened the packaging, I was blown away by the Satin Black paint job this beauty has. Before I bothered playing it I replaced the strings with Alexi Laiho's .11 - .50 DR strings. I plugged her in and wow was I in heaven. This guitar has class. The pickups are great for stock pickups, a bit bassy for my taste, but awesome nonetheless. The bridge pickup gets you plenty of gain and awesome distortion through a Line 6 Spider amp. This guitar is a definite buy for any Rhythm Guitarist. I wouldn't recommend it as a main axe for lead simply for the fact that there's no Floyd Rose. Also check out the Fernandes Vortex X. Both of these models have 24 frets which is great for getting your solos in. I recommend picking this baby up before it's gone. At $99 for a guitar I'd price at around $500, you won't be disappointed. Email me if you have any questions!
Let me preface this by saying I tested several of these low-end Fernandes guitars. As a whole, I find these low-end Fernandes guitars to have very high cosmetic quality. The wood is very solid feeling and the finish is very good. In other respects they have been hit and miss thus far.The Fernandes Dragonfly X I tried is a resonably nice guitar with good sound. The satin finish is a little flatter than I was expecting but it kind of grows on you. On the Dragonfly I bought, the frets are not what I would call sharp, but they are not smooth either. One of the strings buzzes when not fretted leading me to believe the nut is faulty which some superglue or something to add to the slit should correct. Using the selector switch seems to produce a small amount of crackling. The tuners on all these X-series Fernandes guitars that I have tried seem to be rather cheap. They work well and keep the ax in tune pretty well but are not what I would call high quality, The Dragonfly seems solid and is definitely a step up from Fender's low-end Squier Bullet. It actually kind of reminds me in feel and play of a strat knock-off by Fullerton Guitars that I used to own. Anyway, it is a good guitar, not excellent, but good for a newbie and beyond and should hold up well under newbie treatment.
