This a non-catalog model Fernandes FSA-100 semi-acoustic made in 1979. What makes this model so unique is that rather than a set-neck like a typical 335, this guitar is a semi-acoustic with a through neck. The neck runs from the headstock through the entire length of the guitar down to the strap pin. The neck itself is a five-piece maple and mahogany laminate, with a rosewood fretboard and brass nut.
This model came in Brown Sunburst (FSA-100BS) and Cherry Red (FSA-100CR) finishes. I’ve been lucky enough to find one in each color. Pickups are L-104. As the back of the headstock on these indicates, these were hand made and they are indeed beautifully made.
The guitar is beautifully made and finished in a gorgeous see through red. The yellowing on the binding makes for a fantastic look. The guitar appears to be all original, including its original hard case. Pickups are L-104.
