Excellent Guitar, whether you are a U2 fan or not

Steve9308, 16.05.2017
I have had my eye on this guitar since it's launch in 2016. I finally took the plunge and ordered it and after a week of playing it, I have no regrets whatsoever.
You can feel that this is a high quality instrument as soon as you pick it up. The neck feels wonderful.
The Edge's personal choice of pickups from his 70's Strats allow you to very easily recreate his tones from his famous Strat songs like "Bad", "Pride", and "Where the Streets Have No Name".
I'm playing this guitar into a Vox AC30 and the results sound very nice.
The guitar comes with a nice leather strap, cable and an excellent black tweed case.
The only negative I can come up with is that when it arrived, the bridge was lifted away from the body due to the tension of the strings. I had to tighten the screws in the tremolo pocket on the rear of the guitar to solve this. I'd have thought this would have been caught by quality control.
After I had tightened these screws there was no further adjustment necessary. Action and intonation were perfect.
I would recommend this guitar very highly, even if you are not trying to sound like The Edge, this is an excellent guitar which is capable of many different sounds and tones.

Pros:
Looks Great
Sounds Great
Feels Great
Locking tuners
Leather Strap
Black Tweed Case

Cons
Had to adjust spring tension on tremolo bridge

Not just the name

22.04.2016
As a big U2 fan, of course I have been approached by the signature guitar - but the name itself on a Strat does not make any quality. Since I already have a strat at home ... must one have the? The answer ahead: YES!

I was able to play "The Edge" by chance in New York rehearsal and was thrilled with the sound and playability. In this compilation, the guitar is unique and surpasses my expectations absolutely.
The price at Thomann was unbeatable, so I saved the transport, customs and taxes in the USA and have hit here.

If you want to find out more about the selection, compilation of the guitar - there are great videos on fender.com.
