Edge using a B&W Strat for Streets in Melbourne...

Seems that Edge has been experimenting with which Stratocaster for using for "Where The Streets Have No Name".

Melbourne: Not sure which night this was. Edge using a Black w/white pickguard 1970's era Stratocaster (Instead of the all black Start he'd been using over the past few tours.

Yet by Brisbane, he went back to the all black.

Yet it was back to the all black Stratocaster for Brisbane.

Perhaps the all black needed restringing and Dallas couldn't finish in time?

It might have needed some work. I doubt it would be the re-stringing. Dallas is pretty good about re-strings loads of guitars per day.

I think you may have answered your own question in your Black Falcon / One Tree Hill thread . During the video for Bad he swaps the black strat for the b/w - the black was sounding a little dull (in comparison and for Edge's standards) on the high E (or E flat) so perhaps he was having problems with the bridge pickup. on the flight to Brisbane, Dallas had time to get his soldering iron out and do some surgery? just a theory but that video pretty much tells us that he was certainly having an issue with the black strat.
