Hi there The Hedge. Fancy meeting you here.

As for the fret marker issue... seems the + is what they came with.





I will have to look into why Edge's black Variax has different fret markers.

Possible it was requested by The Edge?

But keep in mind that they have made custom items for him (rack version of the DM4) and keep in mind that he bought the Variax 700 when they first came out.
It might be possible that the black one was a prototype?

I want a silver sparkle guitar...maybe my next guitar (a Hallmark) I can get in a silver sparkle. (I am looking at a green sunburst sparkle as we speak)

If you et a Variax, I can lead you to the guy that did the re-finish for Chas (Joshua Tree).

The Edge would mistake it for his own.
