Description

Details

The Fender EOB Sustainer Stratocaster Electric Guitar in Olympic White is the signature model of Radiohead's understated Ed O'Brien. O'Brien has a proclivity for immersing the audience/listener in lushly textured soundscapes, with guitar tones that seem to have an unending character infused with an enviable harmonic richness. O'Brien's love for the Strat' is no secret, and this marriage of form and functionality is a win for Fender, O'Brien, and every guitarist who has longed for a guitar that can truly sing.

Classic Strat' style

As one would expect, the classic Strat design is here in all its glory. Ergonomically-designed curves, bevelled edges, and a double-cutaway profile for improved upper neck access are all accounted for. The body is designed using alder, a tonewood that is favoured by Fender due to its easy workability, balanced tonality, and lightweight feel. The result is an easy to wield instrument that is fantastic for use in the studio, and on the stage. Completed in an Olympic White paint job, which is protected by a coating of polyester, you can rest assured that this beauty will look the business wherever you're performing.

Unique neck design

Fitted to the body is a supple maple neck, which is shaped to a profile that is a slight departure from a standard "C"- or "U"-shape profile. The 10/56 "V" back-shape offers a slightly larger profile in the hand, but retains a comfortable reference point for the thumb along the back of the neck. Paired with the neck is a smooth maple fingerboard, which is shaped to a 9.5-inch radius and home to 21 narrow-tall frets. The combination of radius and fret-style make it delightfully easy to execute smooth string bends anywhere on the fingerboard. A unique appointment comes in the form of a special neck plate engraving with a custom "Flower of Life" emblem.

Versatile electronics

In keeping with Ed O'Brien's idiosyncratic playing style, Fender have equipped the EOB Stratocaster with a very individualised setup. In the bridge position is a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. humbucker, which produces a saturated midrange output that is perfect for crunchy chords and searing leads. In the middle position is a classic Texas Special single-coil, which pops with bright cleans that produce sparkling notes. However, the item that sets this Strat' apart is the inclusion of the Fernandes' Sustainer unit in the neck position.

Used by O'Brien for close to a decade now, the Sustainer has become an integral part of his setup. The Sustainer works to generate a near-infinite sustain across the guitar's strings, which simplifies the process of generating dreamy sonic soundscapes significantly. The Sustainer is powered using a 9-Volt battery, which is accessible via a compartment on the rear of the guitar. The switchable On/Off switch gives you ready control over the Sustainer circuit. There is also a Fundamental/Harmonic/Blend switch, which allows you to focus the Sustainer's attention on the natural fundamental tone, a pitch adjustment to the 5th natural harmonic of the ringing note(s), or a blend of the Fundamental and Harmonic modes to harmonise indefinitely every ringing note for a beautiful harmonised feedback effect.

Tour-ready hardware

The body is home to a 6-saddle vintage-style synchronised tremolo bridge, which offers peerless intonation and vibrato control. The headstock is home to vintage-style tuners that uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. Each model is supplied with a deluxe gig bag, which enables you to transport your Fender EOB Sustainer Stratocaster Electric Guitar in Olympic White in comfort, safety, and style.
