Edge Signature Strat thoughts...

The Edge signature Stratocaster. It's been out a while now.

I'm wonder if NAMM will bring an alternative? Maybe the silver finish? Maybe the silver with a sustainer?

Dallas had mentioned the silver finish prototypes were to try something different, as the majority of his Strats have been black.

Johnny Marr jaguars came out in two finishes. Then they put out the limited Sherwood Green. And more recently, they put out a black finish.

Am I the only one that would like one in a different finish?

I'd love the silver. But I'd think it'd be cool if he played (and Fender released) a Sherwood green model. Could be cool.

Maybe we will find out during the shows starting in May?!

Time will tell.

Rosewood fretboard or bust for me. Also I feel like the pickups are underwhelming. That said, I'm sure it plays great!

If I wanted an Edge Fender signature Strat I want the all black with maple neck. That's the one I've been lusting after since like forever. The one with sustainer would be nice too but I already have like 5 guitars with those things and another sustainer kit waiting to be built into number 6.

Also on an Edge Explorer.

Well not quite, apparently. Grestch apparently spins owned by the family; however, the distribution and production part is done by Fender. They still have a deep relationship, tho

But is there anything special about Edge's jet?
The thing with his Explorer, is I think he's pretty fastidious about it sounding a certain way and having Dallas source guitars/parts to ensure it's hiw he likes it. Which really does lend itself to a custom guitar.

Also, re Edge strat, agree with the all black. Miffed it has a white pick guard

Nothing that you can't fix with a black pick guard, some covers and knobs. Although for that price it should come as optional with the guitar. Not something you have to spend extra money on. It's not much, nothing compared to the price of the guitar, but considering the price of that guitar they should throw it in for free for the completists.

I'm glad that he's constant. Keeps things nice and tidy. It also means there's an actual signature guitar for us to clone. Not a guitar that constantly changes and which you could never really replicate. Like with Adam. If I were a bass player I'd be really pissed if I had dropped a ton of money on an Adam signature bass, only for him to never play them again and switch to something else instead once a tour is over.

i know it's good that he keeps his guitar pretty standard and known to us instead of like in the past, where he just used vintage guitars with pickups and all that which could've been modified in the past.
