I've done Tokai, done Greco, do Aria next time, so it's Fernandes this time!
I'm going to talk about Fernandes.
Fernandes is "Saito Musical Instruments" established in 1969 is the predecessor Originally, the business was the purchase and wholesale of classical guitars. Is it the influence of Greco's EG series hits? Changed business to a manufacturer of LM musical instruments.
In October 1972, the company name was changed to Fernandes Co., Ltd., produced by Hidetoshi Shiino. It started selling electric guitars
Every company has key people. Fernandez was also present. While changing from a classical guitar to an electric guitar A person responsible for product planning and development joins the company. I was a musician at the time. Later founded MOON Corporation My name is Katsumi Omote.
At that time, even guitar manufacturers It is natural that there is no one who can play the guitar, I don't know the peripheral devices. I think he was the right person for the development. (Users at that time had little knowledge of LM instruments. It was the form that the manufacturer sent. )
