Taking the spotlight. In 1997 the new Vertigo H-80 was featured on the cover of Fernandes USA product catalog, bringing the trademark shape to central image of the brand. In this year, the current Fernandes horizontal logo along the headstock was introduced to the H Series bringing the signature image to the classic models. The HB-65 (Vertigo Bass) was briefly discontinued to be revamped and brought back into production in 1998.
The H-80 featured chrome-covered mini humbuckers and black bell knobs, giving it a classy vintage look and replacing the floyd-equipped H-85, which was also being redesigned and scheduled to come back as the Vertigo Elite in 1999.
Stay tuned for part 5 coming next week!
