Too much treble guitar and chorus pedals.

There is no chorus effect on the guitar... yes its a bright tone.

I don't know which guitar The Edge used for that song, but to me it sounded like his Explorer (really bright pickups). I've always loved the sound of that specific guitar in Edge's hands whereas it can get somewhat shrill when other guitarists use it differently.
So, does anyone know if he actually uses the Explorer on Red Flag Day ? And does he add any other effects along with it ?

BTW the bass is fantastic as well on that track...

Tour he used the explorer in America. Switched to Les Paul  when they hit Europe. The album tone sounds like a strat. The verses are just a light modulation effect. Bridge is light delay, solo is sd1.

Actually yes. The bridge is very similar to Iris(the stars are bright but do they know..) . But the song is pretty boring guitar wise since its very repitive.
