Hi,

I'm a big fan of MIJ guitars and have been lurking around the forum for a while. I recently bought myself my first Fernandes. According to the stamp on the neck it's a 1974 model. Looks to be in good nick, but not all parts are original - someone did a horrible job with the tuners... going to replace those asap.

The pickups have been replaced with Dimarzio and Kent Armstrong pickups and looks like the pickguard isn't original either. It's been carved a bit at the bridge and the neck to make it fit.

Does anyone have info what the original pickups might have been?
And does a normal fender pickguard fit?

All info on the model is appreciated

I'm thinking the model might be FST-75N?

Managed to find original 70's Fernandes tuners to replace the ones on the guitar:
