Fender releases The Edge Deluxe amp & Stratocaster
Fender has released The Edge Signature Stratocaster and The Edge Deluxe amplifier, both part of the brand's signature series collection.
The Edge Strat is said to have been engineered to provide versatile tone and effortless playing. Unique features include a pair of special Custom Shop Fat 50s single-coil pickups with flat pole pieces, a DiMarzio FS-1 bridge pickup, upgraded quartersawn maple neck with “C”-shaped profile and 9.5” maple fingerboard, modern two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with pop-in arm and fully adjustable saddles. The Edge’s signature is also included on the front of the large ‘70s-style headstock.
As for The Edge Deluxe signature amp model, it is described as an updated take on the classic ’57 tweed Deluxe, known to have been used to craft the Edge’s sonic identity. This amp is said to produce the tone and articulation of the vintage Fender Deluxe amps that are an important part of the artist’s complex multi-amp effects setup. This 12-watt hand-wired combo features modified circuitry for tighter low-end response and high-impact tone, a 12” Celestion Blue speaker, custom-tapered volume control and altered component values in order to tighten up low-end frequency response. The Edge himself also hand-designed the special grille logo badge, which distinguishes the traditional tweed amp as a distinctive tool for guitarists everywhere.
