What guitar is Edge playing here?

Hey People
Never seen this before but thought people on this board might be able to shed some light? I thought it was an SG at first but now think its an odd type of Les Paul....




Cheers

Hey Galeon. That isn't my list. Just included as a quote in my message.

That list has some parts that are vague and others that are dead wrong.
