Following in Steve Hackett's footsteps, I'm thinking of installing a Fernandes Sustainer on an Alex Lifeson 40th Anniversary Axcess. This involves replacing one of the tone controls with a switch and adding a second switch next to it on the front. Not a reversible mod, so what do you think? Will this devaluate the guitar? I don't know yet if I'd keep it forever, so resale would be a possibility. Thanks!

Would you pay top price for a '64 and 1/2 convertible Mustang with a non-stock engine in it?

Yes, it will devalue the guitar.

Only do the mod if it makes you happy with the guitar.
