    Hi ...

    Just been made aware of this Strat. with Sustainer ...

    https://shop.fender.com/en-GB/electric-guitars/stratocaster/fender-eob-sustainer-stratocaster/0140192305.html

    Not yet available here (very useful of Fender to send out an email implying it is ;)).

    Anyone tried it yet, does it "do what it says on the tin".

    Not at all keen on the neck option as advertised so... Is the Fernándes developed pickup any better than any other options?

    Personally, much prefer Ed's playing to Johnny or Thom ...

    Don't know much about sustainers (other than they give super sustained notes), never used one, but James Young of Styx uses one in his strat to great effect.
