NLOTH, I believe, was on the Epi Casino, with Bono on his Irish Falcon. I also saw mentioned that Edge went back to the Gibson hollow-body for One.

Edge on UV seems to be a strat, black and white, i thought his retrorocket was black with shiny silver?
Adam on UV appears to be the White precision with red tortoiseshell plate.

It should also be noted that on Streets that they were playing in standard tuning for the first time in a long time.

The headstock looks like that of a Warwick (same folks that make the Buzzard) - Not 100% sure of the model of this one.

Probably a 2nd RetroRocket. The headstock in the video looks like a Fernandes.

And if you look at the shape of the pickguard, it doesn't seemed to be shaped like that of a strat

Magnificent appears to be the Country Gretsch.

COBL is the Country Gretsch.

Vertigo is the blonde Tele.

Sunday Bloody Sunday appears to be his sunburst Stratocaster (same one as Pride, probably).

Walk on appeared to still be the Les Paul Custom.

I did them all based on looking at video, yes.

(To avoid a bunch of embeds, I'll break them up.)

Magnificent: http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=A8F_qKXCki0 (check 0:52, Edge appears on screen)

City of Blinding Lights: http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=bYDps1yRtPw (0:12)

Vertigo: http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=Iug8oMI-T_Y

Sunday Bloody Sunday: http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=vboOyq029AY (right at the beginning, you can see Edge)

Walk On: http://www.you tube.com/watch?v=8R5oBosyO-s (check at 2:58 for the clearest shot, on the video screen)

Hard to tell from the video monitor not being so clear but I think that is the Music Rising Les Paul.

Cool. Thanks for posting the links. I will try to find some other video of One to see if I can verify... I do think it might be the Music Rising LP

That confirms the blonde Tele on Crazy Tonight (at about 2:03 for the best view).
