A 1976 Gibson Explorer Electric Guitar played by The Edge during The Joshua Tree era was sold for $437,500.
Guitars used by the likes of The Edge, Amy Winehouse, David Gilmour and Eric Clapton were sold for over $5 million at an auction in the United States over the weekend.
Julien's Auctions' Icons & Idols: Rock N' Roll sold many music memorabilia items, with Eric Clapton's acoustic guitar used while playing with Derek & The Dominoes receiving the highest bid of $625,000.
The Fender Stratocaster used by Amy Winehouse on stage and in the video for 'Take The Box' was sold for $153,000, while a guitar played by Pink Floyd's David Gilmour while touring their 1987 album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason, went for $200,000.
It's the second major auction of Amy Winehouse memorabilia this month, after The Amy Winehouse foundation raised over $4 million for the charity earlier this November.
A number of the items sold at that event, possibly including the dress worn by her during her final performance, will be shown at the forthcoming Amy: Beyond The Stage exhibition in London on November 26 before being sent to the winning bidders.
Meanwhile, U2 recently released their first single since 2019, sharing 'Your Song Saved My Life' from the Sing 2 soundtrack.
Bono will also feature in the movie as the voice of "lion rock legend Clay Calloway" – an artist "who shut himself away from the world more than a decade ago after the loss of his wife and hasn't been seen since."
