    There is something i really want to know. At what point in an awesome rock-n-rollers career does it become cool to have your clothing attacked by a crafty lady with a Bedazzler?

    Went to the Fender website and they have a burgundy mist color that looks awfully similar. Also Adam has been known to put jazz necks on p basses as he thinks they're easier to play. That would explain the non p neck styling.

    All in all pretty awesome looking machine and one I want!

    Now that you mention it, how about mixing a little sparkle stuff with your TruOil for your next refinish? A copper color might have gone well with the walnut.

    I definitely prefer the Gold Sparkle Jazz over the two Precisions.

    I have to admit the gold sparkle is one signature bass I would own in a heartbeat!

    i wouldn't go that far. i don't care for gold at all really...it's just I really dislike purple and I like the Jazz bass better.

    I just bought a Fender P Highway One for the U2 Tribute that I'm in, and the finish is so nondescript, I'm actually thinking about applying a sparkle finish on my own. I hope I don't totally f it up! :bassist:

    Amps have master volume knobs, turn 'em left. Aaaaah haaaa. And cabs can remain unplugged, oho o o! :D

    Adam has been the flashy guy fer sure. Love his bass lines too.

    John,

    It would be totally worth it to have Marty Bell do the work. His finish jobs are legendary, and at $300-$400 it's a piece of art that's quite affordable.

    Let me know when you go and maybe we can get a 2 for 1 deal, since I'm thinking about a sparkle job for my Hwy 1...

    I prefer the P-basses! The purple sparkle one is especially mojorific.



    +1, I'll never understand why guys like Adam Clayton and Michael Anthony get less respect than they deserve. But as you said, that's not the thread topic. :ninja:
