FENDER ED O'BRIEN RADIOHEAD EOB Stratocaster 2018 Olympic White Strat Nice 19590
This is a 2018 Fender Ed O'Brien Stratocaster in amazing condition. This is all stock and modeled after Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien's personal Strat. Literally like no Strat you've ever heard: has a Fernandes Sustainer in the neck, Texas Special middle, and Seymour Duncan JB Jr in the bridge. One of the mini-switches is called the "active sustainer" and basically it lets you get feedback at almost any volume at the flip of a switch. It's hard to describe and one of the most unique onboard effects I've heard on a Strat. The other mini-switch is a Fundamental/Harmoic blend switch. The mix of features includes vintage hardware, V shaped neck, modern 9.5" radius and narrow tall frets. It adds up to a great playing guitar that sounds like no other Stratocaster. Totally clean, 9.75/10 condition, with one tiny mark on tip of the headstock. Weight is 7 pounds, 14 ounces. No case. Just given a full setup. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) I may end auction early if it sells elsewhere. Thanks for looking!
OMG! Watch this vid with O'brien playing and describing his Strat!

Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien has now partnered with Fender to deliver a wholly unique, groundbreaking Stratocaster that lives up to the stellar heights of his hugely influential playing style. This Stratocaster features a Fernandes Sustainer pickup (powered by a 9V battery) in the neck position provides near-infinite sustain, perfect for the more ambient, cavernous playing styles that Ed helped pioneer. A single-coil sized Seymour Duncan JB Jr. humbucker resides in the bridge position, and offers extra girth to your tone when you need it. Plus, a Texas Special single-coil in the middle position adds even more tonal versatility for more punch. This pickup combination is like nothing you've ever seen in a Strat. Playability is exceptional as well thanks to modern features such as the 9.5" radius fretboard, narrow tall frets, and great-playing 10/56" "V" neck profile. While Ed opted for a more subdued finish package, his visual style is present in the custom "Flower of Life" logo neck plate. Top it all off with Vintage-Style hardware, and you have an absolutely killer Strat with unmatched tonal versatility that is truly worthy of its namesake. (FULL SPECS AT BOTTOM)
