One Tree Hill / One Black Falcon

Looks like Edge is finally breaking out the 2009 Gretsch Black Falcon. Appears that is what he's using for "One Tree Hill" on this tour.



Here's a piccy of Dallas with it, back during soundcheck on the U2:360 2009 dates:






The Black Falcon was also listed in the October 2009 Music Radar interview / featrue with Dallas Schoo.

Another video of One Tree Hill - You can see the Black Falcon really well on the video screen in the beginning.

That is a nice guitar. What is the breakdown of guitars/songs now on the 360 tour? It seems like Edge has truly turned into a hollowbody guy. Offhand it seems like most of their live songs are being played on hollowbodies. Which also begs the question of how he avoids the feedback at the stadium volume he's playing at, but I guess they have their tricks.

Actually, there are a lot of solid body guitars. LP's, Teles, Strats, RetroRockets.

The Gents have closed F-Holes.
Rick has open F-holes but is a semi-hollow and very shallow. I've never heard of feedback issues with a Rick.

He's not used the Casino for any of the 2010 shows. Breathe and No Line being retired thus far...

The Stereo Country Club being retired for a Stratocaster for MOS...

So that really leaves... the only hollow right now that could have feedback issues as... the Black Falcon

Melbourne setlist
1.Return Of The Stingray Guitar - EXPLORER
2.Beautiful Day / Here Comes The Sun (snippet) EXPLORER
3.I Will Follow EXPLORER
4.Get On Your Boots TELECASTER
5.Magnificent COUNTRY GENT (1)
6.Mysterious Ways / My Sweet Lord (snippet) RICKENBACKER (MAPLEGLO)
7.Elevation SG
8.Until The End Of The World / Anthem (snippet) LES PAUL GOLDTOP
9.I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For STRATOCASTER (B w/WHITE PKGRD)
10.Mercy (BE USING LP MUSIC RISING... ASSUMING SAME ON THIS LEG?
11.Bad STRATOCASTER (B w/WHITE PKGRD) - Not the same Strat as the ISHFWILF Strat
12.In A Little While EXPLORER
13.Miss Sarajevo PIANO?
14.City Of Blinding Lights COUNTRY GENT (2) Different to the COBL Gent. This one has a SuperTron pickup in the neck position
15.Vertigo / Highway To Hell (snippet) / Devil Inside (snippet) TELECASTER
16.Funky Town (snippet) / Crazy Tonight / Relax (snippet) / Two Tribes (snippet) TELECASTER
17.Sunday Bloody Sunday / Get Up Stand Up (snippet) STRATOCASTER (Tobacco finish)
18.Scarlet Piano (maybe Terrry is playing piano) and... [Les Paul MR]
19.Walk On / You'll Never Walk Alone (snippet) LP CUSTOM
Encore(s):

20.One LES PAUL MUSIC RISING
21.Amazing Grace (snippet) / Where The Streets Have No Name / All You Need Is Love (snippet) (all black) STRATOCASTER)
22.Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me LES PAUL MUSIC RISING
23.With Or Without You FERNANDES RETROROCKET
24.Moment of Surrender STRATOCASTER (B w/WHITE PKGRD) (during last leg. Not sure if on this leg) - He used a stereo Country Club on the 2009 shows.

Scarlet - About 2:20 you get a shot of Edge playing a Les Paul. It looks white at first, due to the light, but when you see him move, you can see the Mardi Gras finish = Music Rising LP.

Near the end you see Edge take of the LP MR and Dallas hand him the LP Custom for "Walk On"

Tobacco = tobacco sunburst.

MOS is the Yamaha CP80 piano + guitar. During the 2009 shows he was using a Gretsch 1959 Sunburst 6101 Country Club. During the 2010 European shows, he changed the part he was playing and began to use a black Fender Stratocaster.

I've not seen MOS video from Auckland or Melbourne. But it might still be the Stratocaster for MOS.

The interesting thing -- to me -- is after tours of a decent amount of Les Paul Custom use... not so much now.

"Walk On" has been it for the last two legs of the tour. And before that, there was also "Unknown Caller".

Now most of the Les Paul use is one of the 'Music Rising' LPs.

I guess the one that was auctioned was THAT special. And that the other, with the black knobs nor the clone of the auctioned guitar might not sound or feel the same to The Edge? Or perhaps he just prefers the sound and feel of the Music Rising Les Pauls?

I'm sure if Edge read half of the gear stuff we talk about, he'd chuckle. Chances are he'd say something like "you guys think about that way more than I do" or something like that.

Nope, your eyes weren't playing tricks on you. It was BOTH (all black Stat and then the black and white Strat)

You can see the guitar change-over between "Mercy" and "Bad". He hands the LP Music Rising to Dallas and takes the all-black Strat.

When "Bad" starts, it sounded a bit off.

In the first bit you see Edge playing the all-black Strat. But then Dallas comes back out and they make a quick switch to a black and white Stratocaster.

You can see the swap on this video:

I had one for the first two legs of the tour. This leg, I am not certain... I haven't had time to be THAT bored at work yet -- to have the time to put one together. I will get around to it.

Seems mostly the purple sparkle Precision, gold sparkle Precision, gold Warwick Star Bass, gold Warwick Reverso, gold Warwick Reverso (with reversed headstock), natural finish Warwick Reverso...

Adam is still using the Gibson RD Artist bass for "Magnificent". I think that is the only song he's using that bass.

Particular song you are looking for information regarding?

Adam did briefly use a few bass guitars early in the tour. The bass you are referring is his 1972(-ish) Gibson Triumph.

SPOTLIGHT BASS | GIBSON TRIUMPH


He's been using a 1970's era gold Gibson Les Paul Signature bass for "Mysterious Ways". (From between 1975-1979)

SPOTLIGHT BASS | GIBSON LES PAUL SIGNATURE


The Warwick (Triumph Gold finish) Star Bass, being used since the start of the 2010 shows, replaced the Epiphone Rivoli for "Get On Your Boots".

SPOTLIGHT BASS | WARWICK STAR BASS II



There have been a few other various Warwick bass guitars that Adam's used briefly:
* WARWICK // Streamer Stage I // 200x // Antique Tobacco burst in colored oil finish with mirrored pickups [seen during early U2:360 shows] - (More information forthcoming).

* WARWICK // Custom Streamer Stage II (heavily customized w/bigger body - 6-string body with 4-string neck) // 200x // birdeye maple[seen during 2009-07-20 Amsterdam U2:360 show; used for "Sunday Bloody Sunday"] - (More information forthcoming).

* WARWICK // Custom Streamer $$ // 2009 // custom gold sparkle finish w/Seymour Duncan Vintage pickups (Wound personally by Seymour Duncan!) [First seen during U2's appearance at the Nov 5th show at Berlin Brandenberg Gates.] - (Per Warwick: "It is actually a custom Streamer $$, with maple fb wood, black block inlays, maple neck, swamp ash body, custom wired Seymour Duncan pickups, full passive electronics, but with a custom wiring. And a nice special Gold Flake finish).


Adam is still using the gold sparkle Fender Jazz bass for a few tunes. I'd have to double-check YouTube to see for which tunes on the last leg.

Fender Custom Shop also built Adam a purple/lilac sparkle Jazz bass, same finish as the purple/lilac sparkle Precision. Although I've not seen him use it during any of the shows, thus far.

Unless he's pulled the Triumph out in Australia or New Zealand, it's not be used since the 2009 shows. I think that it's mostly been used in the studio, previous to the 2009 shows.

Don't forget though, that Melbourne show (I was there) Edge was having a few problems and had to change guitars halfway through two or three songs. I'm no guitar player, but I think he changed Strats a couple times?
