Fender American The Edge U2 Strat Stratocaster Black Signature Guitar

This is a Fender American The Edge U2 Strat Stratocaster Black Signature Guitar. The Edge's sound is unmistakable. From the opening notes to U2's debut album Boy The Edge had a sound. Enthralling millions worldwide with his acclaimed textural guitar work—as well as his knack for writing catchy riffs and hooks—U2 guitarist, The Edge, relies on his Strat guitar to sculpt his unique sound. His notes chime and bloom. They are punchy with lots of attack yet retain warmth. Designed in close collaboration with Fender®, The Edge Strat is his new constant companion, replacing his favored vintage Fender instruments onstage in arenas around the world. This guitar is his new #1.
 
The Edge Stratocaster features a quartersawn modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile. The 9.5” fingerboard radius is slightly flatter than a vintage-style radius, but still offers enough arc to provide a comfortable fret-hand feel, making bending notes easier. For 1970s-era authenticity, this guitar also features the “large” Stratocaster headstock adopted in 1965 with The Edge's signature on the front of the headstock. For pickups this Strat is loaded with a powerful combination of special Custom Shop Fat ‘50s single-coil middle and neck pickups and a DiMarzio FS-1 bridge pickup—each with flattened pole pieces—not only offers a wide range of tones, but also serves as a testament to the meticulous efforts to enhance The Edge's signature tone. In addition, The Edge Stratocaster uses a two-point tremolo design with fully adjustable polished stainless steel “block” saddles and a pop-in arm. This design results in a smoother playing feel, greater range of motion and increased tuning stability. The Edge Strat also features a contoured neck heel specially designed for maximum playing comfort. Rather than the traditional squared-off heel, it’s smoothly sculpted for comfortably easy access to the upper reaches of the fingerboard. As a special touch, The Edge Stratocaster includes a custom-designed deluxe hardshell case with black and gray tweed covering and a metal Fender logo. With the addition of the new the new locking short-post tuning machines you will enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.
