The Edge's unique guitar playing style helped shape the sound of the popular Irish band U2 for decades. The Edge and Fender worked closely to create a guitar to The Edge's exacting specifications. More wood strategically placed on the body, neck and headstock creates the tone the Edge craves, similar to some vintage Fender guitar designs from the 50's. The guitar sports a pair of special Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coil pickups that have flat-staggered polepieces for personalized string response. They sit in the neck and middle position, cranking out versatile tone with enhanced bass response. The bridge position houses a powerful DiMarzio® FS-1™ pickup for added tonal balance, smoothing out the guitar’s response and boosting the output for arena-sized sound with clear articulation.
There is no doubt the new The Edge Signature Strat will be one of the hottest guitars for 2016.
