no no no...

If you check the u2.com tour page there is a recent interview with dallas (edge's guitar tech) were he says edge has brought 46 out on the vertigo tour and I rember hearing he has over 100 in the studio I reckon he has probably 200 + guitars I can easily imagine. Sounds crazy but its edge!

"Love and Peace or Else - Silver Sparkle Variax 700 Acoustic"

Maybe on tour, but on record, according to the recent Guitar World article he used an old Gibson J-200 in the verses and solo.

its a Fernandes Decade. it's damn cool -- Edge uses fernades guitars for With or Without You because Fernandes builds really good infinite-sustain systems and puts them in their guitars.

That list I posted is just the live guitars. I don't think anyone has a record that in depth of the studio recordings.

Wow what a list - not even gonna go into the Edge stuff, too long! lol

As for Bono though, a couple of additions:

In God's Country - he also used the Fender
One - also used the Irish Falcon on Vertigo
Gone - pretty sure that is the Blue Sparkle ES175 on the Popmart also the Red Sparkle that he used on LNOE
Crumbs From Your Table - Irish Falcon
Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses - Irish Falcon on Vertigo tour
I Will Follow - Red ES 175

might be good to also note the acoustics - on the Joshua Tree acoustics I believe that was the Gibson EC-20 (maybe slightly different model) but its that black one with the Florentine cutaway. Also used the Hummingbird, both in a green and sunburst.

and, I dont know what song this is, but he has also used a Sunburst 335 live on at least one or two occasions, I have seen pics but I have no footage of him actually playing it.

Which guitar are you referring to?

Live on POPmart he was playing a Fernandez for both. On the Last tour he was playing a Tele for Disco.
