Has anyone played one of these? I admit I am intrigued by the concept.
Cool guitar. Really like to try that neck out. Neal Schon had a sustainer in his signature LP.
I’ve been interested in something like this for a long time. The Sustainer is a very cool concept.
EDIT: And that’s just classy-looking, great-sounding Strat. Sweetwater is listing it for $1099 which seems totally reasonable for a dog model having those features, but they’re not shipping yet.
I saw after posting there had already been a thread about this instrument: http://www.strat-talk.com/threads/new-fender-ed-obrien-version.443743/
I found another demo of the guitar that reminded me a bit of Bill Frisell's pedal demo video. Here are both.
This has been on my radar since it was introduced. I’d like to try one out. I don’t NEED it, but I think I’d enjoy it.
My son is drooling over this one. He's a serious Radioheadhead.
I haven't played that but I have an early 90s Japanese Fernandes Retrorocket (very Strat-like) with the Sustainer system and dig it. I can throw on some combo of effects and noodle for hours.
I was surprised the Edge signature didn't have the Sustainer, as he's used versions of it since the mid-80s and debuted a Custom Shop Strat with it not long after he joined the Fender board.
Wow I like that! Can I have a left-handed one please?
I am very impatiently waiting for mine to be shipped. I haven't been so excited about something in so long. I do like Radiohead, but just the specs on this thing are really great. Really fitting for what I do. Hurry up and ship!
When you get it please do post your impressions, and remember: pictures or it didn't happen.
Right on man, I’m jealous! Definitely let us know what you think, I was pondering another build but I may sell those parts to get this if it’s as good as I’m hoping it is.
The sustainer is really appealing, but they got me at boat neck.
A stock Fender guitar that can be used to make cool, different sounds. I'm so happy this exists!
That thing looks awesome. I think Kirk Hammett played a Fernandes with a sustainer. That neck shape is awesome, too.
That second video was mesmerizing.
Guitar arrived today. Really this thing is all I've wanted in a guitar. lots of great tone options, the sustainer is really great, easy to get used to. I will gig with it couple times next week but for now just playing through a little vox.
I maybe foolishly tried to float the bridge, I usually don't try that kind of setup or anything myself as I have 2 amazing guitar techs in my building so I'm sure they may have to fix what I did but geez this thing is great. The neck feels sooo good.
GASsing so badly....
Where’d you order it from?
I'm as jealous as hell! That's the first guitar I've seen in years that I really would buy at the drop of a hat. Congrats!!!
I tried one out at my local shop and didn't like it due to the 10/56 "V" Back-Shape neck. My preferred neck is Modern "Deep C".
It makes such a huge difference, but to each his own.
Yeah I think Long and McQuade had one in the west coast and it was on hold/sold before they even got it in.
I think i remember reading that.. but then again sometimes I dream of strange stuff and I happen to think it actually happened. so who knows.
