Its Burny brand was used for the Gibson replica guitars while the Fernandes brand was used for the Fender replica guitars.

Steve Jones from the Sex Pistols has used Burny guitars.
Fernandes Sustainer is a sustain control system developed to freely control "string vibration". Just by turning on the switch and playing normally, you can get a super long sustain that keeps the string vibrating endlessly. "Sustain", one of the most important elements in a guitar, is created by Fernandes Sustainer by sustaining "string vibration itself". It is completely different from an effector that processes electrical signals to obtain effects, and the sound is a natural guitar sound. In addition, the Fernandez Sustainer is equipped as standard with a "mode selector" that switches between string vibrations with different harmonic components. These items not only "extend the sound", but also enable various "sustain nuance" approaches. The Fernandez Sustainer, which allows anyone to control string vibration at any time, can be said to be a state-of-the-art device that evolves the guitar.
In addition to the 2-mode sustainer light system, the top model of the series equipped with "FTR-11 tremolo".
