Early Fernandes History:

Originally a flamenco guitar distributor, Japan’s Fernandes Corporation began life in 1969 as Saito Musical Instruments. Delivering the company’s first electric guitar catalog in 1973 they followed the playbook of many Japanese manufacturers of the era. Going for the jugular of Fender and Gibson. 

The Fernandes name supported their Fender knockoffs and the model naming convention didn’t hold back: FST for the Strat copy, FTE for the Tele, and FPB for the Precision Bass. The Gibson models were badged “Burny” and model nomenclature followed the same path: FSG for the SG copy, FLC for the Les Paul copy.  

Taking it a step further, Fernandes copied headstocks, font styles and even used “Les Paul” on some FLC models.
