Product Description

The inspiring Ed O'Brien Sustainer Stratocaster guitar is perfect for creating lush, layered soundscapes and finding your own creative voice. 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 Ed O’Brien Sustainer Stratocaster — an instrument as unique as his sound.

The Ed O’Brien 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 Ed O’Brien Sustainer Stratocaster is the perfect tool for players looking to find their own creative voice.

Solid instrument.

This is a well built guitar as far as materials & build workmanship go. After taking the time to adjust everything from the action to the neck to the trim pots on the sustainer circuit, it’s actually a nice guitar. This will be a backup for my Jackson PC1.

Fender’s boldest product in years

Product Review

Such a versitile guitar. Sounds like a classic strat without the sustainer engaged, but once turned on becomes a whole different beast. I have been able to conjure sounds anywhere from ambient pad to overdriven hollowbody. Arrived perfectly set up.

Everything that an over-expensive guitar can’t give. Quantified value!!!

Excellent choice. Wonderful tone and character. They say tone is all in the hands. I sincerely believe that there may be additional factors... Very pleased:-)

Not for strat purists but a great guitar.

Product Review

You’ll have to work to get strat tones on the neck and bridge and mine needed a setup worse than any guitar I’ve ever purchased but once it was up and running it’s a great guitar if you are ok with the tones that it can offer.

Impressive Instrument

Product Review

I've been playing music professionally for just over 20 years and I can easily say that this Ed O'Brien Stratocaster is the most sonically diverse instrument I have ever used. The quality of this thing is really good. Great parts, build, feel. Personally I am not in love with the neck -- it feels like a baseball bat and my little hands struggle a bit with it. But that's no fault of the instrument - it was intended to be modeled after that neck style. (57 I think?) Just know that it is pretty meaty. That aside this thing is amazing. It can cover a ton of sonic territory. The sustainer is awesome and I use it regularly for ambient work. It doesn't just replace my ebow - it's kinda unique in its own right in that it can sustain multiple strings at once indefinitely. Just wicked cool. The texas special and mini humbucker offer some different powerful sounds as well. I get asked about this guitar every time I use it live. For the price you just cannot find a better instrument.

I have 18 guitars... 19 now, and I have to say I completely love this guitar. The neck is comfortable, the tone is what you expect when you pick up a strat. Will be hard to not ALWAYS pick up this guitar.

Good and unusual Strat

Product Review

This is technically the first Fender Strat I've owned. First of all, the sustainer pickup is really cool and allows you to get some interesting sustain and feedback things going on. There's a switch that lets you go from sustaining the fundamental pitch to harmonics, and the middle position is a combination. When it's on, the sustainer uses the bridge pickup. When the sustainer is off, it behaves like a three-pickup strat, albeit with a couple of non-standard pickups. Anyway, a blast to play and a good variety of sounds are attainable.
