"The Explorer is great in that it has a nice top end without all the extra raunch and distortion that a lot of players like in a Les Paul; it's like a compromise between a Les Paul and a Strat." - The Edge
The Edge's 1981 "October-era" rig was compiled from various concert photos, live footage, old magazine interviews and eyewitness accounts.
