question for the guitar enthusiasts among us (indulge me, I'm procrastinating)

If, when you see U2 live (be it in person or on tape), you pay any attention to Edge (as I do most of the time), and you are a guitar enthusiast, you know Edge uses different guitar's for different songs (often the same one he used when the song was recorded).

So, for fellow guitar and Edge enthusiasts, do you have a favorite Edge guitar? If so, is it the:

Femder Stratocaster (used on almost all the 80's hits like WTSHNN and Bad);
Les Paul (seen on UTEOTW, Walk On...probably the one he uses most often);
Rickenbacker (used on Mysterious Ways and Even Better Than the Real Thing);
Infinite (used for WOWY, designed by Daniel Lanois, only like four or five made I think);
Gibson (used for Elevation, though I forget which model he used);
Hammer (used during Elevation Tour on Beautiful Day, New York, I Will Follow, OOC); or just the good old acoustic used to great effect for Stay during the Elevation tour?

Personally, I like the Fender Strat, mostly because of the songs I associate with it, though he's probably done his most cutting edge work on the Les Paul. I tried play UTEOTW on a Les Paul once and it sounded amazing!

Discuss amongst yourselves. If you just enjoy Edge's sound and don't care what he uses to create it, then never mind...
