Need help IDing this Fernandes!

Post by d1sord3r » Tue Nov 03, 2020 8:09 pm

I recently picked up this Fernandes for $300 without knowing what the model is. I figured it was a decent price based off of some of the features alone like the Seymour Duncans, set neck, gotohs, sustainer etc.

The seller had no information about it other than that he bought it off a friend five years ago. I’m pretty sure it’s a Dragonfly, maybe early 2000s model but I’m not sure. I went through all the catalogs I could find in the archives but still didn’t come across one with these specs.

Any help IDing would be much appreciated!

Also, I need to replace the volume pot as half of the shaft is snapped off. I've read that active pickups require a 25k pot but does anyone know if that's what Fernandes' use? Thanks in advance.

The pot will be marked with its value

Looks like the elite variant

I should have mentioned that the ground is soldered over the value!

Use a multimeter across the 2 outer terminals.

Looking like 500k miniature
