    It appears to be a reverse Stryker with a Buzzard NT headstock.What do you guys think of this.Honestly I don't know myself.:D

    Eh.. It just doesnt do anything for me.. Is it cool? Heck yeah! But for U2, Adam Clayton? No.

    IMHO it's pretty ugly. Surprising because I usually think Adam Clayton has really good taste in basses.

    Do not want.

    It's no Guild X-702.

    He is definitely carrying John Entwistle's odd bass torch. I think Adam Clayton is an amazing bass player, so solid and so effective. That new Warwick is petty cool looking.
  12. I've often wondered how a lefty-hung & strung-righty explorer would look- now I sorta know. Interesting, although that buzzard HS irritates my eyes. I think some body shapes need their trademark HS shapes to look right, at least most of the time.

    I think he should stick with Lakland.

    I actually think it's pretty good. I have absolutely no interest in this band but just from this one picture I think it fits him pretty well.

    very awkward to stare at. John Entwistle probably would have gotten a good laugh out of it. Adam Clayton also uses John's A.S.S. (now A.S.S. made by Ashdown) cabinets on stage.

    No neck dive with that a baby I bet just be careful not to bang up your knees.

    Inverted Warwick Stryker. Really odd.

    Love the band, can't stand the look of that bass. :)

    A good friend of mine is in Dublin right now and is going to a total of 3 U-2 concerts while he's there. Hardcore fan to say the least.
