Yes, I'm pretty sure it's the Darryl Jones signature model... the angle of the photo makes the upper horn look smaller than it actually is.

No idea... I'd shoot Lakland a quick email if I were you.

I recently emailed Dan Lakin of Lakland Bass guitars with some questions about Adam Clayton's "Vertigo tour" and Elevation tour Lakland bass guitars. He responded fast! You gotta love that in an equipment company!

Hi Jeffrey,

For the 2005 "Vertigo Tour" Adam is using four US Made Daryl Jones models:
(2) - Natural Jones with custom black blacks and no binding w/ maple necks.
(1) - Teal Green Metallic Jones with custom abalone blocks and no binding w/ maple neck.
(1) - Gold Jones with custom abalone blocks w/maple neck [Adam hasn't taken delivery of this one yet].

During the Elevation 2001 Tour, Adams used the following:
(2) US made, Joe Osborn signature models - one sunburst, one natural
(1) US made, Bob Glaub signature – natural finish.

Thanks,
Dan

I think he uses standard or medium or whatever it is that DR call their not heavy and not light string... probably the shadows on the fretboard from the string are what make the string look a gauge or two heavier than it really is.

Adams strings are DR Sunbeams: .045 - .105 per the 2006 Bass Player article - the side bar about his gear is at the link below:

Isn't he.

That scale is described by most bass string manufacturers as medium or standard.

It's like Lanois and Eno said that Bono is the Mother Theresa of old song ideas... I'm the Mother Theresa of old Threads.

Well, it's kinda annoying. There's probably a reason why threads go down the dungeons of page 3+

It not like the question was not answered months ago.
