Famous for his myriad, fantastical soundscapes, The Edge’s guitar collection is equally impressive.
Although he gained prominence for his use of the Gibson Explorer, The Edge has utilized a Stratocaster from U2’s earliest days. Some of his most notable Strat performances (heard on tracks such as Gloria, New Year’s Day and Bullet The Blue Sky) were played with a black 1973 model, appropriately called Blackie #1.
Edge has played numerous Strats, such as an Eric Clapton model seen here. In the above picture, he performs with Bono at a recent Obama pre-inaugural celebration with a 1962 sunburst model - and a multitude of FX, no doubt.
