The Fender "The Edge" Stratocaster Signature Electric Guitar in Black, is the working instrument of U2's legendary guitarist, replacing his prized vintage models onstage, around the world. Arguably one of the most influential guitarists in the modern era, The Edge's tone has helped to shape the rock and pop music landscape for decades, and the Fender Strat has been his guitar of choice for many of those years.

Sweet Strat Style

The Edge's Strat is based on the iconic '70s models, with ergonomically shaped contours and bevelled edges to make it exceptionally comfortable to perform with. The body The body is constructed from alder, a tonewood that has been favoured by Fender for decades. Thanks to its lightweight feel and balanced timbre, alder enhances the playing feel whilst producing a versatile output that is perfectly suited to U2's unique musical flavour.

This model has been completed in an understated yet effortlessly cool black finish, which has been protected by a coating of gloss polyurethane to preserve the finish for as long as possible, as well as providing resilience when handling changes in temperature and humidity. A tasteful 3-ply mint green pickguard protects the top around the pickups and control knobs.

Fast-playing Neck Profile

The 1-piece quartersawn maple neck offers a supple and reassuring playing support. Shaped to the modern "C" profile, both new players and seasoned pros will appreciate the ease with which this shape allows you to perform. The satin finish on the rear guarantees a smooth playing feel as your hand glides along, whilst the gloss urethane on the front reinforces resilience against humidity and temperature changes.

Paired with the neck is a 1-piece quartersawn maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium jumbo frets that are adorned with black dot position inlays, matching the understated body finish whilst aiding in your navigation along the fingerboard. The fingerboard is shaped to a 9.5-inch radius. which assists you whilst executing smooth string bends, rapid chord changes, and lightning fast legato.

The Edge's Pickup Arrangement

Achieving the same tones as The Edge is made much easier thanks to the pickup arrangement that consists of a pair of Custom Stagger Fat 50ss in the neck and middle positions, and the DiMarzio FS-1 in the bridge position. The Custom Stagger Fat 50s sing brilliantly, offering an enhanced bass response that serves up juicy rhythm tones. The DiMarzio FS-1 pickup offers power and punch that gives power chords and solos a huge presence.

Control comes in the form of a 5-position pickup selector switch, as well as tone controls for the neck and middle/bridge pickups, and a master volume pot. The simplified setup belies the complex range of tonal options at your fingertips. Whatever style of music you play; the setup The Edge's Strat enables you to access the perfect tones every time.

Gig-ready Hardware

Fender has fitted a 2-point deluxe synchronized tremolo with pop-in arm to the body, which allows you to control vibrato precisely. Fitted to the headstock are deluxe cast/sealed locking tuning machines with short posts, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully. The hardware setup guarantees optimised intonation and sustain, so that the richness and clarity of the tonewoods and pickups are preserved and translated in all their glory.

The Fender "The Edge" Stratocaster Signature Electric Guitar in Black features the signature of the man himself at the top of the headstock, and every model is supplied with a unique black and tweed hardshell case.

Customer Reviews
brilliant guitar that is a real "go to"!
Posted on 10/03/2016 by Christian I was bought this guitar by my wife as a surprise birthday gift. The Dimarzio bridge pick up is beefier than my mexican 50s strat, and much louder, so the vintage neck pick up start tone needs some finding. The locking tuners make string changes unbelievably quick and easy, and even with enthusiastic use of the pop in trem arm it stays in tune very well.

It plays really well and the shaped heel makes for easy access with high notes at the fiddly end of the neck.
It's a US strat, with an artist signature on it, but its not quirky or limited to sounding only like the artist. it is versatile and for £1200 or thereabouts its about the same price as other new range US strats.
I love it and I've not picked up any of my other guitars in the month i have owned it!
