Fernandes BX-80J Explorer w/ Headcrusher FRT-6G Locking Tremolo (MIJ)

A classic 80s shred machine made by Fernandes Japan, the BX-80J was an artist model for Satoshi "Jimmy" Hirose and packs plenty of hair metal punch! Aged white finish over an alder body, it features 2 EMG style pickups and a locking tremolo system known as the Headcrusher, an intuitive tremolo that features top loader string-through fine tuners for ease of string changes.

This particular model has seen it's share of dings and bruises, however all wear is honest and the frets still have plenty of life left in them. Professionally setup and balanced with 10-46s, this Explorer is capable of a wide range of styles and tones, the tremolo is rock solid and the pickups sound fantastic.
