In [this interview](http://music.hyperreal.org/artists/brian_eno/interviews/escm84.html) with Chris Everard of *Electronic Soundmaker & Computer Music* conducted in October 1984, Eno says, "I have two instruments which I love, one is a copy of a 1957 Stratocaster a Fernandez copy, it's a brilliant instrument, beautiful guitar, which [Bob Quine](http://equipboard.com/pros/robert-quine), [Lou Reed's](http://equipboard.com/pros/lou-reed) guitar player, selected for me in New York. He'd already bought three or four Fernandez guitars himself, he's a Stratocaster fan. "A Fernandez copy costs the same as a brand new Stratocaster, but they are perfect copies of, perfect copies - like they do a '53, a '57 and a '61 and I have the '57. It's an absolutely identical copy, you can't get a '57 Strat now that sounds good for less than 15 hundred dollars. My one's a beautiful, beautiful instrument."more
