is there something unique about Edges acoustic playing?

I'm just curious...I know Edge has a unique sound when he plays electric with delay and all...but what about Edges (far underrated) acoustic playing? Is there a certain way that he strums, or is it the strings and the picks that he uses? basically I just want to know everything about acoustic Edge.

If noticed that he plays solid and tastefully choppy acoustic. It's more resonant and he leaves a lot of space for the chords to rest. I esp love acoustic Stuck In a Moment, Ground Beneath her Feet, and Staring at the Sun. Walk On is good acoustic, just not one of my faves.

The Ground Beneath Her Feet acoustic= x10
