Fender EOB Ed O'Brien Stratocaster

Ed O'Brien's ambient, ethereal and orchestral guitar style is an essential part of the sonic identity of Radiohead. Fender partnered with this groundbreaking player to create the Fender EOB Sustainer Stratocaster: an instrument as unique as his sound. This inspiring guitar is perfect for creating lush, layered soundscapes and finding your own creative voice. The Fender EOB Sustainer Stratocaster offers a wide palette of tones thanks to its Seymour Duncan JB Jr. humbucking bridge pickup, Texas Special single-coil middle pickup and Fernandes Sustainer unit in the neck position. The Sustainer works some technical magic to create near-infinite sustain on one or more strings, making it easy to achieve thick, textured sounds. The Sustainer's controls include an on/off switch, intensity control and three-position switch to select the mode: Fundamental-only, Harmonic-only or Blend. A mix of modern and classic, this Stratocaster features a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge, vintage-style tuning machines, a "10/56 V" neck profile, 21 narrow-jumbo frets, a synthetic bone nut and a special neck plate engraved with a custom "Flower of Life" emblem. The Fender EOB Sustainer Stratocaster is the perfect tool for players looking to find their own creative voice.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "It has opened up a whole new world of playing for me"
Overall: I've only played Tele's my whole life, since the 80's. Love the tone and how versatile they are. I recently got a Nashville Tele (vintage noiseless Tele pickups (neck and bridge) and a single vintage noiseless Strat pickup (middle) with five-way Strat-o-Tone switching) and was liking the combo of sounds. Being "older" I'm getting into more atmospheric, mellower grooves and was looking for something to get into a new place. Liking the Tele-Strat tones and Radiohead's body of work, I messed around with ebows and Memory Man's but wasn't getting there. After seeing a few demos of this guitar, I had to do it. While it took 5 months to arrive, I absolutely love this guitar. It is a stunner. Absolutely gorgeous and a very smooth fretboard compared to the Nashville Tele. The sustainer was a bit mild upon arrival but I put a new battery in and it went off the rails. There is definitely a learning curve here, palming a bit to minimize the sustainer, but it is brilliant. I've finally dialed in what I was looking for. On the Strat end, it has all the "chirp" that Tele players look for (once in a while) ;-)
Style of Music: Everything... I don't know, is it new wave? Taliking Heads, Bowie, VU... and all classic rock, Stones, Kinks and that other one

"nice guitar, took a little patience"
Overall: I really like the guitar now that I've spent a little time with it. Ive never used a susatainer before this guitar so I am still figuring out how to use it for my own style. The more I use it the more I am getting used to flipping it on and off for a cool effect rather than trying to use it for a whole song. I am not crazy about the texas special (its not bad, but i really prefer the fat 50's ) , but the other two pickups sound great. All in all it is a very different guitar than I am used to. After two months with it I am really glad to have it. Its currently my favorite gutiar to play. The neck also took a little adjustment, but now i like it.
