The Edge's new Epiphone CASINO

Well, we all saw it being used for 'The Miracle' for the first two shows, and this guitar looks quite interesting, as it lacks a pickguard. This brings the Casino count up to 3: The main one (used for Breathe and NLOTH on 360, and for Cedarwood Road on this tour), the spare one with the Bigsby and this new one.

Edge seems quite fond of Epiphone Casinos now, they seem like one of his go-to guitars.

Anyone know anything else about it?

His have Epiphone Trem-o-tone vibrato, not Bigsby.

That said, a hard-tail Casino isn't a surprise. I've not ever seen Edge use the vibrato on his Casinos.

Pick guard-less is tuned to E-flat, as mentioned.

He seems more drawn to these types of guitars as of the last 10 years, from about Vertigo on. Don't get me wrong, they sound great... I plan to own one someday (currently just a Strat guy). Wonder what caused him to make the change?
