    Classic design with premium pickups for full metal attack.

    The Fernandes Revolver Pro 81 is a dream machine. Fernandes has taken a classic electric guitar design and updated it with a sleek contoured body and state-of-the-art components to make it one of the most exciting guitars on the market. With its double-cutaway alder body, bolt-on maple neck with extended access to the high registers of the 24-fret rosewood fingerboard, and Floyd Rose-licensed locking tremolo system, the Revolver Pro 81 brings power to the lead guitar player. It comes equipped with an EMG-81 active humbucker for full metal attack, Fernandes Sustainer for infinite sustain, Gotoh-style die-cast tuners, and an ultra-comfortable body shape.

    Fernandes Sustainer
    The patented Fernandes Sustainer system on the Revolver Pro 81 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.

    Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

    Comments about Fernandes Revolver Pro 81 Electric Guitar:

    I've been going back and forth between this and an Ibanez S420 for a long time. The S420 has the ZR Trem, which I've heard great things about, but this has an EMG81 AND the Fernandes Sustainer. Once I found a used Revolver *on this site*, it was no contest. I ended up with a great guitar for under $500.The neck is hefty, everything feels solid & smooth. The licensed FR trem is way better than I hoped. Very balanced and sturdy. I'm going to scallop this soon (I have a problem, I do it to all my guitars) and it will be beyond perfect.I don't think the street price of [$] does much for the popularity of this guitar, but I might have spent that much on it one day. Who knows, I may get a white one.

    Excellent aggressive guitar!

    Comments about Fernandes Revolver Pro 81 Electric Guitar:

    I had been playing a 7 string Washburn for 10 years as my primary guitar and was looking for a better 6 string. I started playing every guitar within the $500-$800 range only to be disappointed by either sloppy playability from ultra flat necks or poor tone from stock pickups. Then I saw this puppy in the used section of a local store. It had all I was looking for, active EMG, Floyd rose, clean style. So I gave it whirl even though I was looking new. It was one of the smoothest guitars I have played in a while next to custom Schechter and PRS. I breezed through all my licks without the discomfort of playing a different guitar, so I bought it no questions. The neck is a little more rounded than most shredder axes which is great for me. There is a great tonal balance when using both pickups although the sustainer by itself clean could be a little brighter. However when utilizing the system I can't imagine playing my melodies without it. I didn't even know about the sustainer system when I bought it. So after I read about it, that was the icing on the cake.
    My only complaint is that my tuning gets a little flat after a few intense sessions, but thats the case with alot of guitars. Decent battery life, haven't had a drop out. The sustainer will start to fade before the EMG giving you time to finish a set without worry.
    Has most of the same features and playablity of axes in a higher price range. Plus the sustainer system makes up the extra $$$ you would spend to get such amazing sound.

    Decent Guitar for the price

    By ema

    Comments about Fernandes Revolver Pro 81 Electric Guitar:

    Seems to be sturdy, well made, more so than other Fernandes guitars I've owned-played. It still has that heavy particle board feel to it. The finish is nice, but it's really WHITE! The Sustainer pickup does it's job and the tone nob seems to roll off the shrill a bit. When the sustainer is off, the neck pickup has a nice full sound with high gain, but overall the neck pickup is a little muddy especially when played clean. Not good at all for melodic clean blues rhythms ala SRV or Hendrix. If you put a 6+ band EQ on it, that helps... but overall, not a very good rhythm guitar for blues, jazz, pop, etc. The EMG Pro 81 bridge pickup is outstanding. Very robust, warm, responds very well to the tone nob, excellent sustain and definition. The Floyd Rose works well, but the tremelo arm has no tension adjustment... you just wind it on until it stops. I have to put plummers tape on its threads to get it to stop where I want it to so there is no rattle in the bar when plucked. The neck is very flat... took a few times playing it to get used to it. There are 24 frets so you have a full double-E octave. You have to watch the battery life or your guitar will fade out quick, unplug your cable whenever you're not playing it, even at a gig. If you're a shredder, this could be a good first guitar... but for blues or rock, this makes a good back up guitar because its strong point is its lead not rhythm capability. The best feature about it is with the sustainer pickup, you can play those small club gigs and get plenty of sustain and depth at a very low volume.

    Comments about Fernandes Revolver Pro 81 Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing for about a year and a half, and I love music. this guitar is not a beginners guitar. it puts out great sound with a good amp, but not really a blues guitar but very good for the shredder in you.
