ARTISTIC APPLICATION OF TECHNOLOGY
Ed O'Brien's ambient, ethereal and orchestral guitar style is an essential part of the sonic identity of Radiohead. We 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.

FERNANDES SUSTAINER CIRCUIT
The Fernandes Sustainer driver in the neck position expands the guitar's traditional sonic capabilities by creating near-infinite single or multi-string sustain.
UNIQUE PICKUP CONFIGURATION
The single-coil-sized Duncan JB Jr. humbucking bridge pickup offers giant tone while the Texas Special single-coil middle pickup adds extra spank to the traditional Fender sound.
The 9.5"-radius fingerboard, topped with narrow-tall frets, makes precision soloing and chord playing easy across the entire neck.
"10/56 V" NECK PROFILE
This beefy, resonant neck feels instantly comfortable to most players' hands. "Soft V"-shaped near the nut, it rounds to a "C" profile as you ascend the neck, making it great for both chord playing and soloing.
CUSTOM NECK PLATE
The custom "Flower of Life" logo is an image said to represent the basis of music; the distances between the spheres is identical to the distances between whole and semi-tones.
The vintage-style bridge and tuning machines give this guitar the authentic look, feel and tone of a classic Fender instrument.
