USE:
First seen during the "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" promo shows, it only saw limited use during the 2005/2006 'Vertigo' tour.

This was The Edge's go-to guitar for 'Vertigo' during the "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb" promo shows. It also shows up in some of the promo pictures taken by Anton Corbijn for the album.
 
Once the 'Vertigo' tour started, Edge opted for his blonde 1966 Telecaster.
 
The Lake Placid Blue Telecaster did get used for 'Vertigo tour performances of John Lennon's "Instant Karma". The Edge also used this for (at least 1 of 2) performances of "Discotheque" during the 2005/2006 'Vertigo' tour.
