Bono's Gretch

Bono was playing a guitar on the Elevation tour. It was a green hollowbody. Is this a Gretch and if so anybody know the year and model? Thank-you.

It is in fact a Gretsch and I believe it is a White Falcon model but it is painted in a custom green color for exclusively for Bono. I heard somewhere he called it the "Irish Falcon".

Yes it's a custom guitar for like $3,000! its called the irish falcon, they copies are sold everywhere now. The two first original ones are owned by bono and the other one is owned by a guy who works at fender. Its suppose tosound beautiful but has a little problems with the imput jack, if you listen to Walk On at slane castle you'll here it. It's on my wanted list
