U2 guitarist and sound icon The Edge collaborated closely with the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation (FMIC) on The Edge Signature Stratocaster and The Edge Deluxe amplifier. Both instruments are part the Fender Signature Series which is geared toward product progression and storytelling, creating instruments designed to the unique specifications of the world’s most iconic artists.
“The Stratocaster is one of those instruments I have always had a strong connection with. To me it has a raw tonal personality that inspires innovation and discovery. As a creative tool it continues to drive my writing and guitar playing,” said The Edge. “Working with Fender and their Custom Shop over the last two years, we have been able to refine the design of my signature guitar and amplifier to a place that matches as close to humanly possible the sound I hear in my head.”
These two products, each marked with a logo badge hand-designed by Edge himself, are sure to deliver creative inspiration to players of all levels, deriving from the sounds created by the sonic icon himself. The Edge Stratocaster and The Deluxe Amplifier are both available for consumer purchase now. Also available is a 2.5” leather strap personally designed by The Edge, and constructed from two layers of soft garment leather.
