With countless hits and an eclectic style, U2 have mesmerized us time and again over the last thirty five years. Raw and gritty riffs, chiming leads, tender acoustic passages and ethereal arpeggios fill the avenues of U2`s albums. One of the masterminds behind this otherworldly mashup is Edge, U2`s sole permanent guitarist. Over the years, he`s used a huge variety of guitars, mostly of Gibson and Fender brands. Three Strats, one 1968 model and a pair of 1973 models are Edge`s main choices for the softer, atmospheric pieces. Fender`s 2016 The Edge Strat is based on Edge`s favorite, 1973 Strat he bought many years ago, which came with an already built in DiMarzio FS-1 bridge pickup.
The Edge Strat is a classic, black-clad Strat guitar with a big 70`s headstock, modern hardware and combined DiMarzio/Fender electronics. It kicks off with a standard chassis made of a flat-top alder body and a bolt-on maple neck. The neck is equipped with a modern C profile in the back and a 21-fret maple fingerboard on top. 9.5" radius, 1.685" nut and black dot inlays complete the fingerboard.
DiMarzio`s FS-1 bridge pickup and a pair of Custom Stagger Fat 50`s pickups comprise the pickups combo. They come with a standard Strat controls unit. Modern two-point synchronized tremolo bridge and Fender tuners complete the specs list. Retail price is around $1,800, which is an average price range for Fender`s Strat signatures.
