    QUARTERSAWN "C"-SHAPED MODERN NECK
    QUARTERSAWN "C"-SHAPED MODERN NECK

    The Edge Stratocaster features a quartersawn modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile. The 9.5" fingerboard radius is slightly flatter than a vintage-style radius, but still offers enough arc to provide a comfortable fret-hand feel, making bending notes easier. For 1970s-era authenticity, this guitar also features the "large" Stratocaster headstock adopted in 1965 with The Edge's signature on the front of the headstock.

    THE EDGE PICKUP COMBINATION
    THE EDGE PICKUP COMBINATION

    A powerful combination of special Custom Shop Fat ‘50s single-coil middle and neck pickups and a DiMarzio FS-1 bridge pickup—each with flattened pole pieces—not only offers a wide range of tones, but also serves as a testament to the meticulous efforts to enhance The Edge's signature tone.

    MODERN TWO-POINT SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO
    MODERN TWO-POINT SYNCHRONIZED TREMOLO

    The Edge Stratocaster uses a two-point tremolo design with fully adjustable polished stainless steel "block" saddles and a pop-in arm. This design results in a smoother playing feel, greater range of motion and increased tuning stability.

    CONTOURED NECK HEEL
    CONTOURED NECK HEEL

    The Edge Strat features a contoured neck heel specially designed for maximum playing comfort. Rather than the traditional squared-off heel, it’s smoothly sculpted for comfortably easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard.
