Product Description

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 trusty Strat guitar to sculpt his unique sound. 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.

Fender® The Edge Strat®
The Edge’s signature Fender Stratocaster® is the perfect foundation for his trailblazing sound and genre-bending style; its expressiveness is a natural match for his iconoclastic playing that ranges from sensitive to bombastic.

Striving to constantly push the envelope of music technology, The Edge teamed up with Fender to create his signature guitar, The Edge Strat. Hand-crafted in Corona, CA, this evolution of the tried-and-true design is engineered for effortless playing feel as well as flexible tone. A duet of specialized Fender Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coil pickups with flat-staggered pole pieces inhabit the neck and middle positions, balanced by a FS-1 bridge pickup for stadium-sized tone packed with clear articulation and definition. The headstock bears The Edge’s signature, marking it as his personal tool of choice—the only one that effortlessly delivers the sound and feel he requires to craft U2’s anthemic masterpieces.

Edge Strap
Experience truly authentic style with this superbly comfortable guitar strap, designed and conceived by The Edge himself. Alluringly distressed, this strap is ready to survive a multitude of performances.

Edge Case
A unique case for a distinctive guitar, The Edge Case wears an exclusive black tweed covering, personally selected by The Edge to complement his refined personal style. This elegant case’s black plush interior will protect your instrument while the interior side pocket provides a handy place to store extra picks, strings or a strap, ensuring all the accessories you need are close to hand.

An innovatively supercharged instrument, the Edge Strat is engineered for top-notch performance with versatile tone and effortless playing feel. A pair of special Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coil pickups with flat-staggered polepieces for personalized string response sits in the neck and middle position, cranking out versatile tone with enhanced bass response. A powerful DiMarzio FS-1 pickup inhabits the bridge position for added tonal balance, smoothing out the guitar’s response and boosting the output for arena-sized sound with clear articulation.

The strong, stable quartersawn maple neck generates a slightly brighter tone while the sleek contoured neck heel and comfortable 9.5 inch fingerboard are ideal for most playing styles, supporting low end chords and riffing along with chiming upper-register chords and leads with ease. Enjoy increased sustain from the modern two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with pop-in arm and fully adjustable block saddles for pinpoint intonation accuracy.

An elegant guitar for a refined player, this guitar combines the classic curves, appointments and effortless playability of classic Strat guitars with modern enhancements and materials to create a player’s dream instrument—a flexible music machine with timeless Fender style and authentic sound. Don’t delay, add The Edge Strat to your sonic toolbox. Includes a special black and gray tweed hardshell case.

Best Strat I've ever played on planet Earth
What is your opinion of this product?
Simply the best Strat I’ve ever played in all my 53 years living on planet earth. The neck is exceptional in comfort and radius. Fretwork is perfection right out the box. Finish in black is cool along with the large 70s style headstock. Case is top notch, and the pickups being FS1 Dimarzio, and 2 vintage fat 50s with master volume and tone controls with no load circuit: outstanding. If you want a STRAT this is the schizz beyond all other Strats like the Elite or professional, the Edge Strat blows them all away. Edge is on to something hear my fellow guitarists that takes Leo Fender's namesake and makes it more beautiful. Superb Strat.
