Edge w/red finish Fender Kingman

Whether it's a longer term change or not is uncertain. Probably a bit more about serving his part on the Fender Board Of Directors.

Played that one during the Sweetest thing in Amsterdam. Quite a quirky guitar to see.

This guit. seems to be a staple for Sweetest Thing. So odd to see Edge with guitars with stickers. Well except for that "support local musicians" thing

I actually don't like how Kingman sounds like in U2 concert (i feel like Kingman appeared couple of times, right?) 'cause it sounds so plinky.

Well, if Edge is trying to reduce amt. of vintage guitar brought to tour, then i guess using Taylor and Fender kingsman instead of vintage Gibson makes sense, i guess. Plus he can give those away eventually just because he can.

He has the Gibsons on tour. There's a picture in his hotel room with SJ200, i think he likes the guitar but he has to play the fender's one because their contract with them.

Think that Fender is a good seller in electric guitars but not in acoustic guitars. They need any propaganda

what I meant is that Edge could be trying to reduce amount of vintages actually used on stage. I feel like for recording and stuff, sure, use anything.

But as I said, I kinda hate how those Fender sounds. plinky and thin. anyway I think he might have a contract but loose one. it's not like he's forced to use Fender-related brand all the time. He's using LP and Explorer and all that.

(as I said , i kinda expected him to go totally Fender, but).

Better, i can just put it thru Axe-Fx and fuzz pedals and all that , totally make it electric.

(side note, didn't Martin make weird acoustic-electric hybrid which had acoustic body but electric pups? like one Kurt Cobain used in unplugged session?)

I don't think that it has anything to do with reducing vintage guitars.

Keep in mind that the Gibson J200's Edge had been playing the past 2 tours were not vintage. They were all from 2004/2005

As a member of the Fender Board of Directors. He's helping to sell their 'wares'.

Townshend and non-Townshend. All from 2004/2005 Townshend plus I think one of the non-Townshend were from 2008/2009.

Before that (Elevation and Popmart) it was Taylor.

He's got a late 50's J200. But that doesn't go on the road.

So while he has had a habit of using vintage electric guitars... that hasn't quite been the case with acoustic guitars over the years.
