Fender Artist The Edge Stratocaster Black
6-String Solid Body Electric Guitar in Black with Maple Fingerboard. Made in the USA.
Known for his exotic tone and mastery of effects, The Edge is one of the 20th century’s greatest sonic architects. Designed in close collaboration with Fender, The Edge’s most recent sonic innovation is his Artist Strat, a joint venture so successful it has replaced his scores of vintage instruments as his go-to for studio and live work around the world. With a trio of hand-selected pickups, specifically two special Fender Custom Stagger Fat 50s at the neck and middle and a DiMarzio FS-1 on the bridge, as well as a quartersawn maple neck with a comfortable “C” profile and 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard, the Edge Strat is perfectly perched at the intersection of familiar and cutting-edge, just like his riffs.

About Fender Artist Series:
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
Developed hand-in-hand with some of the biggest artists of yesterday and today, the Fender Artist Series is a collaborative line of signature models incorporating hand-selected tonewoods and custom appointments and specs, voiced to specific tones and playing styles by our master builders and the artists themselves. Stratocasters, Telecasters, Jaguars, Jazzmasters, and Jazz, Precision, and Jaguar basses take on new life with the help of some of music’s most revered icons.
