For the Adam gals...mostly :)

Well also the Adam fans who are guys, but they're few and far between who venture to PLEBA...or they possibly already know this stuff. :P

Not just a picture thread, it's an educational one.

Think I got the names right...Adam's basses' names.


Fender Jazz 65 Shoreline Gold (Photo I took myself)


Gibson Thunderbird IV


Gibson Les Paul (if you got the Bass Player issue from January, that's the one he uses with another bass on "Sometimes," and also in the video for "Even Better")


Lakland 2000/2001 - The Joe Osborn Signature


Fender Jazz bass 1961 - 3 Tone Sunburst


Lakland 2000/2001 - The Bob Glaub Signature


Auerswald Custom


Fender Jazz 64 Sherwood Green

Hey Moomoo! (I'm also hmtmkmkm at Poplemon) I read an article where Adam mentioned he got an Ibanez copy of a Gibson EB-3 early on.

I have a Squier version of a Fender Standard Jazz. Looks like the bass Adam plays in the 'I Will Follow' video.

Sure though I'm still a student of the bass myself.

I sometimes call them by other names, like the 4th photo, the "white sparkly one."

Thought I don't have $3,000 for that one!

I was wondering if the "yellow one-POP" bass was made just for him? I also wanted to know if the names of the basses are the names of a company or an actual person...Please forgive me if my questions are childish:reject

Yup, the space bass was made just for him. The same guy who makes Prince's guitars made it.

The basses are named after companies, but those company names are the founders' last names.

Then I think some basses are customized to a particular musicians liking, and they get names like the Lakland Joe Osborn, etc. (pronounced like "lake-land")

There's no official "Adam Clayton" signature bass

Just his unofficial customized ones. Apparently he switched the necks on some of his basses so he could see them better on stage and he has some basses that are a mix of the two most popular styles of bass, the 'jazz' style and the 'precision' style.

I got both issues of Bass Player with Adam interviews, he makes this stuff sound kinda naughty a few times.
