Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien collaborates with Fender for signature guitar
Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien has teamed up with Fender to create his own signature guitar… and it is a thing of beauty.
Launching the EOB Sustainer Stratocaster, O’Brien has added a Seymour Duncan JB Jr humbucker in the bridge, vintage synchronised tremolo bridge along with vintage-style tuning machines with a Texas Special single coil in the middle and Fernandes Sustainer in the neck.
Set to launch on November 14 for a cool £949, the O’Brien EOB Sustainer Stratocaster signifies the first piece of Radiohead signature gearto be created.
According to an official statement, the guitar’s neck plate is engraved with a custom “Flower of Life” design instead of a signature stamp and Fernandes Sustainer pick out a “uniquely designed electronic system that enables the controlled sustain of any single or group of notes within the guitar’s sound range.”
