In this [Guitar World interview](http://www.guitarworld.com/u2s-edge-discusses-gear-and-joshua-tree-1987-guitar-world-interview?page=0,2), The Edge mentions the Bond Electraglide, misprinted as "Electric Light." He says, "There's a revolutionary new guitar called a Bond Electric Light, which is a very finely-crafted guitar without proper frets. Instead it has little serrations. I tried to incorporate it into my playing armory and I found that it wasn't working, until I discovered the things you can do if you really sort of abused it! I got fantastic results. Like the sort of heavy fuzz guitar at the end of 'One Tree Hill,' and the last three tracks on the middle of side two — that sound is from the Bond."more
I'm pretty sure that Mick used his Bond Electraglide throughout Big Audio Dynamite and BAD II and Big Audio. He can be seen playing it in most of their music videos: 'The Bottom Line' from their first album (1984), the 'Rush' video (1991) and 'I turned out a punk (1995). I can vouch for seeing Mick use the Bond live in concert 1989-1992. He also plays it in the video for 'Good Morning Britain' by Aztec Camera (1990).more
> Elsewhere in the studio space are a recent-vintage Rickenbacker 360-12, a Jersey Girl electric with distinctive maple control knobs, a purple sparkle–finish Washburn acoustic/electric allegedly built for Prince to use on the 1984 Purple Rain tour, a 1993 Martin D-28 (“That guitar’s a cannon”), a rare three-pickup Silvertone from the Sixties, and a 1984 Bond Electraglide. That last guitar is a rare and bizarre Scottish-made electric model with a carbon-fiber body, graphite neck, digital controls, active electronics (which require an external power supply), and fingerboard that has no frets and resembles a staircase.more
