WATCH: The Edge discusses his new signature Fender Strat and amp

U2 axeman, The Edge, has previewed his new signature Fender Stratocaster and Deluxe amplifier.

The Edge collaborated closely with Fender to design and produce the US-made guitar and amp, which will join the firm’s Signature Series.

In the video below, The Edge discusses the design philosophy behind the new products and the sound he set out to achieve.

“The Stratocaster is one of those instruments I have always had a strong connection with,” he said. “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. 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.”
