If you were to sum up U2 guitarist The Edge with one word, innovator comes to mind. Not a traditional guitar hero by his own admission, The Edge is constantly looking for new sounds, and new ways to approach the guitar. During the band's Pop
phase it was all about various filters, and on more recent albums, various types of pitch-shifting effects have been at the forefront. But effects aren’t everything, and The Edge certainly knows a good guitar when he sees one. He brings along a large selection of guitars every time U2 go on tour.
