From Radiohead's early days, Ed O'Brien has been conjuring otherworldly tones from his guitar that suit their artistic landscape.

You'll find a Duncan JB Jr in the bridge for hotter output, a Fender Texas Special single-coil in the middle position, and a Sustainer Driver in the neck with a wide variety of controls. The EOB Stratocaster takes Fender tones to a whole new level.

There may not be a more recognizable solidbody electric guitar than the Stratocaster. In Clapton's hands, it's a blues machine, Yngwie turns it into a fire-breather, and Radiohead's Ed O'Brien coaxes his into sonic territories that sound all-together new. What brings such a wide variety of guitarists to the Strat is its extremely comfortable design and its ability to sing with such a versatile voice. Grab this Fender Ed O'Brien signature Stratocaster from Sweetwater, and you'll immediately know what we mean.

The EOB Strat is carved from the time-tested tonewood combination of alder and maple. Alder, a generally lighter wood, offers a very balanced sound with nice sustain. It has been a favorite on Fenders for decades. The maple neck also features a maple fingerboard for added clarity and attack, no matter what rig you play through. You'll also find that the neck's 10/56 "V" profile has the uncanny ability to fill your hand in a reassuring way, while never slowing you down.

Where O'Brien's signature Strat parts from most other designs out there is in its electronics. Each of the three pickup positions is filled with a wildly different design, allowing you to access sounds out of reach of most instruments. The neck Sustainer Driver pickup utilizes two mini toggles to choose between on/off and fundamental, harmonic, and blend voices. The middle position features a tried-and-true Texas Special single-coil. And you'll be flipping to the bridge for the higher-output punch of a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. humbucking pickup.
