Edge from U2 guitar gear - GUITARS Gibson Explorer


Edge from U2 talks about his guitar gear. He's not famous for his technical ability but he comes of with good sounds and rhythm play with his guitars. Edge from U2 the expert in effects.

This video is another from the BBC The Story of the Guitar series. Edge talks about his first guitar a Gibson Explorer. When he was first looking to buy a guitar he wanted a Gibson Les Paul but couldn't afford it, when he got to the guitar shop the shop keeper showed him the Gibson Explorer and he went for it for its unusal shape. The Gibson Explorer has since been his trademark guitar and has a few stories on tour to go with it.
