Fender Ed O’Brien (EOB) Stratocaster!
Ed O’Brien’s ambient, ethereal and orchestral guitar style is an essential part of the sonic identity of Radiohead. Fender has partnered with this groundbreaking player to create the EOB 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 EOB 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.
EOB Sustainer Stratocaster: Launching November 14, 2017 – £949
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 synchronised 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 EOB Stratocaster is the perfect tool for players looking to find their own creative voice.
