Fernandes Vertigo X MTB

Here's a metallic blue (MTB) Fernandes Vertigo X that came in for an electronics upgrade and general setup. Couldn't find the exact model in the Fernandes catalogs I downloaded off the web. However, I gained valuable information from Musikhaus Korn and the Fernandes website itself. I don't think you'll be able to buy a new Vertigo X with this particular 12th fret trapezoid inlay feature, as current Vertigo Xs sport dot inlays. In any case, this is a versatile instrument that sounds great either clean or dirty. Not bad for a twin humbucker-equipped guitar. Let's take a look at some specs, then:

Body: Alder
Neck: Maple, Bolt On
Fingerboard: Rosewood, 24 3/4" Scale, 22 Jumbo Frets, 16" Radius, Trapezoid 12th Fret Inlay
Nut: Composite 1 5/8"
Tuning Gears: Die Cast
Bridge: Tune-O-Matic W/Stop Tailpiece
Controls: 3-Way Toggle Switch, Master Volume & Tone
Pickups: Neck and Bridge - High Output Humbucker
