I was just watching Late Night With Conan O'Brian, and it looked like the Edge was playing an Epiphone Casino. Is that a guitar he normally uses, or is this something special? Sounded pretty good to me.
I wasn't sure either, but it definitely looked like a Casino, and I am pretty sure it had the little Epiphone logo on the pickguard.
I was wondering if maybe this had something to do with the Music Rising thing (I came across something mentioning that Gibson was doing a special Music Rising Epiphone Casino, so maybe that would explain why the Edge was playing it).
Originally posted by ThomasH He used it for a couple of songs on their latest album. And no, it's not a knock-off. It's a vintage guitar from before Gibson bought the brand and turned it into their budget line.
I know he used it on All Because Of You. I can't remember which other songs got the Epi treatment.
Gibson bought Epiphone in 1957. The first Casino's came out in 1961.
