^ Loved to see Edge having fun!! Is this the same one Edge used in Live 8 (Vertigo). I think it was the yellow one too.

Dunno. But Gibson SG is my favourite guitar (along with Fender Jazzmaster, but Edge never used it)!

What about the 12-string Rickenbacker (sp?) that he uses for Mysterious Ways, Even Better Than the Real Thing and Gone?

I love Edge's '76 Explorer, but I love his SG even more! If I was able to afford a Gibson SG, I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

My brother has one of those! Look at them shine!

I love Mr. Bonos forest green Gretcsh. Infact it is in my dream I'll one day learn to play and buy one with my millions.

Didnt he use something similar to a Jazzmaser in Popmart?

Discotheque encore I think it was...



My favorite is the Alpine White strat (Exit, Electric co etc) as well as the black on black '78 strat (Under a Blood Red Sky)

I believe he used a Fernandes Jazzmaster, which does look a lot like the Fender.

after I saw the video for 'Sunday Bloody Sunday' back when I was just getting into U2, I decided that I wanted a black on black Fender Strat like Edge's right then and there.

I love his Explorer too
all of his guitars are magical

My dad has a black Fender Strat. Pretty bitchin'. Personally I'm thinking of saving up for an Explorer. Definitely the tightest Edge guitar. the Gibson SG is definitely up there too, but I like the Explorer because it's Edge's distinctive guitar.
