Enthralling millions worldwide with his acclaimed textural guitar work—as well as his knack for writing catchy riffs and hooks—U2 guitarist, The Edge, relies on his trusty Strat® guitar to sculpt his unique sound. Designed in close collaboration with Fender®, The Edge Strat is his new constant companion, replacing his favored vintage Fender instruments onstage in arenas around the world.
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.
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.
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.
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.
As a special touch, The Edge Stratocaster includes a custom-designed deluxe hardshell case with black and gray tweed covering and a metal Fender logo.
Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short-post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.
