That was the Fernandes. He played it on Disco, Velvet Dress and WOWY. It has the built in sustain system.

Can you make a similar list but specific to a tour, like Vertigo?

And can you summarize what his mains guitars are?

Thanks.

jcoriha, I love the list you made I would like to get in touch with you for a project I'm doing with The Edge's guitars. It's for Wikipedia. Would you be willing to help me with it? I only need your help for a few things.

Edge used one of two Fernandes Decade Elites with sustainer pickup in the neck position - for Velvert Dress and Discotheque during the PopMart tour.

The sea foam green was a custom colour. That nasty burnt orange one he had was actually a stock colour... go figure.

That's indeed a nice list, Pac Mule.

Was it to make it Wikipedia-friendly that you put all stratocasters together or because you didn't know?

I try to maintain a list of all his guitars, which currently lists more than 10 stratocasters. ^^

Fernandes Decade Elite

TPSGLICK2424

Only place to find a Decade Elite these days is used shops and E-Bay. It is and has been out of production for 5+ years.

You can get a RetroRocket, like the one used on the Vertigo tour (With Or Without You). But they do not come standard in black, like Edge's.

Thats a nice list, but isn't Edge using rickenbacker 360/12? I don't know what the difference between 330 and 360 is but I've seen 360 always!

I got a Rattle and Hum movie book for graduation, and it has all guitars listed and amps and effects and such.. that's pretty hot!

The Jetglo 360/12 in the Boston video was borrowed after The Edge tossed the Fireglo to the stage floor.

Boston GuitarWorks sent it over. They sent a few for him to try and borrow.

The original Fireglo (R&H throught the Elevation tour, drowned/was destroyed in the flood that they had at Hanover Quay, whilst U2 were playing the SuperBowl show in 2002.

The 1967 330/12 Fireglo was replaced. Edge got the 1965 330/12 Fireglo for standard tunings (Sometimes You Can't Make It...).

He got the 1966 330/12 mapleglo for E-Flat tunings (Mysterious Ways - Also seen in the mimed performance of Window in the Skies on Japanese TV.

There is at least one other 33/12 Fireglo as a backup and a Jetglo 33/12 backup.

ALSO -
The Edge has picked up at couple more Rickenbackers - 6-string models - when in Chicago a few months back.
