I think that the straps are made by Levy's. I think the sparkles are aftermarket / custom work. I'm not sure who does the sparkle work for him.

Scott Jones, the "Adam" from Joshua Tree (LA based U2 Tribute band) makes his own.

Here is a picture of Scott with his lilac purple Precision.

The straps as well as the Adam-like stage costumes (such as in the picture of Scott that I posted) are made/decorated by the lovely Ms. Karen. (His wife)

Did he have that painted by the fender custom shop?

Nope.

The paint job on the bass was by Marty Bell. He's located in San Diego.

Thus far, he's painted my Retrorocket, Scott's Precision (seen in the picture) as well as Chas' Variax 700 (silver sparkle). Marty does great re-finish work.

Pic of Chas' Variax? I don't have a pic on my computer. As luck should have it, Chas just called me. I asked him to send me a link to the picture of his. Soon as I have it, I will post it.

I think that The Edge would confuse it for his own. THAT is how good Marty Bell is with his guitar finishes.

T-Shirt, as well as the Adam like pants complete with jangly bits hanging off the side are made by Karen, Scott's wife.

Karen makes all his straps and Adam concert costumes. She's amazing.
