Fender and Replay Guitar Exchange are pleased to present the Ed O’Brien Sustainer Stratocaster, now available for a limited time. While traditional Strat tones are at the ready, this very special Fender artist edition lets you explore some unique sonic soundscapes no other Strats can obtain. As one of the guitarists in the extraordinary English band Radiohead, Ed has helped set the standard for sonic atmospherics and creativity, influencing a generation of new players. And while the classic Stratocaster core is still here, so Anyone Can Play Guitar with this white beauty, this Strat features Ed’s extremely unusual pickup configuration, so different in fact that if you’re an Amnesiac you might forget what three pickups your guitar is loaded with.
The Fender EOB Ed O’Brien Signature Stratocaster features a Seymour Duncan JB Jr humbucker at the bridge, a Texas Special single–coil in the middle, and a Fernandes Sustainer in the neck. The Sustainer is a uniquely designed electronic system that enables the controlled sustain of any single or group of notes within the guitar’s sound range, and O’Brien has performed with a Sustainer for well over a decade now. An on/off switch, an intensity knob, and a three–position switch — fundamental only, harmonic only, or blend - controls the guitar's "infinite sustain”. Everything is in easy reach so you won’t have to Creep all over the instrument to reach any of the controls. The neck plate of this Artist Series instrument is engraved with a custom "Flower of Life" design. Don’t delay and be sure you are one of the Lucky ones who obtain their EOB Sustainer Stratocaster. Replay will be glad to assist, just chat, email or give us a call. A gig bag is included.
