Radiohead are undoubtedly one of the biggest and most influential bands of all time and with that, their guitarist who has helped craft their unmistakable sound has been awarded his own signature guitar from Fender.
Quite unlike any other guitar in the catalogue, the Fender EOB has a completely unique pick-up and electronics configuration compared to any other Fender guitar, that is not only designed to sound great and to allow a massive amount of tonal variety, but is designed to be used as a tool to allow the user to produce completely new soundscapes in any setting.
The Fernandes Sustainer unit in the bridge is an in-built sustain unit which gives the user the option to add layers of guitar sound and create unusual e-bow like effects and give full texture to a live scenario. The middle pick-up is a Fender Texas Special single coil, giving a real taste of classic Stratocaster tone whilst the Seymour Duncan JB Jr. Humbucking pick-up may be single coil sized but provides a fatter sound and gives you a real oompf when you need it.
A quick and comfortable maple fretboard gives you a lovely base to play upon and pull off some exciting licks.
