NOTES from 2008 ICONS OF MUSIC AUCTION catalog:
"This instrument has been in my collection for nearly 6 years. Dallas found it in a vintage shop in a small town in Maryland during the production rehearsals for the 2003 Elevation tour. it has very good tone and the color makes it very rare. I used in in the studio on the current unreleased U2 album recordings (NLOTH)" - EDGE
 
"I thought that Edge would like the unique color and sound of this instrument. I installed the pickup in the rear 'bridge' position where none existed, and it is accompanied by the case it came in on the day of purchase" - DALLAS SCHOO
