Request for Photos of Adam's P basses...

Hey guys, I hope you can help me find some high quality photos of Adam's Gold and Purple sparkle P basses from the 360 tour. I am trying to determine what the basses exactly look like to make a replica, and whether or not the purple P has abalone block inlays or not.

Thanks!

For the purple... It has a white pearloid pickguard. The finish is Brilliant Lavender Sparkle. The neck does have abalone inlays. You could probably order a neck with those inlays from the Fender Custom shop - THEN - Send the neck and bass to Marty Bell in San Diego for refinishing.

He will refinish the body and headstock on the neck. Plus, put the appropriate Fender logos back on the headstock...

Scott from Joshua Tree (LA based U2 tribute) had one of his P-Basses done and it looks amazing.

Click this line and check out some of Marty's work.

The Gallery

There is a picture labelled "Brilliant Lavender Sparkle". That should match up nicely.

Here's some pics of Adams:

Gold sparkle is pretty much the same - abalone inlays, white pearloid pickguard, painted headstock (gold sparkle).
