I have an EXACT replice. 1976 Gibson Limited Edition Explorer.
  • Same make
  • Same model
  • Same pickups
  • Same everything



I have a pewter finish Eric Clapton model Stratocaster. Edge had one painted with a snake and skeleton. Mine doesn't have the cool Rene' Castro paint job.



Mine:


Washburn EA-20 Woodstock Festival Acoustic. Edge had tobacco finish, Bono played a black finish like mine during the Joshua Tour and can be seen in the With Or Without You video.

Mine:

Swap out the hi-gain pickups on your Rickenbacker with a set of Rickenbacker vintage pickups (aka: Toaster top) and it will sound closer to Edge's too.

Only difference that can't be changed so easy are the number of frets. Edge plays mid-1960's Rics. 1969 and before have 21 frets. Post 1969 have 24 frets.

This one's not my guitar, it belongs to "The Chedge" from 'The Joshua Tree' tribute. Although, I get to play it from time to time.

Chedge's Variax is finished in Edge used / Edge approved silver sparkle - Line 6 Variax 700 acoustic modeling guitar.



Mr. The Chedge (Les Paul Custom) and me (Variax 700):


Scott (Joshua Tree's "Adam") has lots of Adam approved bass guitars and amps too.

Here's a pic of me with his Warwick Adam Clayton signature model Reverso - Note the Elevation/Vertigo era Ashdown Amps/Cabinets (Same as what Adam used):




He's got a lovely purple/lilac sparkle Fender Precision that is Adam-approved and lest I forget his 'weathered' tobacco Precision complete with "House of Pain" sticker.

One of the headstock:

It is a wonderful unique guitar! One of the best guitars I've ever played. Does all I need it to. Was made in May 2007. Got it used and it had some modifications done. New nut, new tuners and tuning system. I changed the knobs to the ones with the silver inside them. It's got some slight wear. Mostly on my part.

mmmmm love your goldtop theedgeu2!!!!! Not quite as beat up as mine though.

Bought mine a couple of years ago second hand. its a 57' vos model, and shes had a tough life. Has had a headstock snap just behind the nut with a past owner, which was thankfully repaired the right way!

One of the most amazing instruments i've ever played.

Thank you! Mine has some slight wear on it. Especially on the back where I've had various belts do the job of scratching it up. Btw that Ric looks very very good! The finish is perfect! And those 57 reissue models aren't too bad from what I've heard. Yours looks really good.

all you needa do is break the headstock off and get it glued back on and it's the 100% perfect replica of Edge's.

Edge would've been so pissed off when that happened. He did a gig and the guitar got thrown out back and the neck broke off, sad night for Edge

...and don't do what i suggested
