Still have those U2 cds? No way! Well, put 'em on and kick back to those glorious 90s.
For these customs, used a pair of 9th Doctors for base, sculpted the head and hair on Bono. Got the boots from a Ghost Rider, the hands from LOTR and got the 1:8 scale 72 Stratocaster (just like the one Edge uses on tour!)from Fender Guitar Collection. Wanted to show Bono all up in gospel, so re-sculpted his mouth as if inhaling lots of oxygen. Made his fly shades by cutting plastic clamshell and spraying black, with ample gloss overtop. Added the spangles on his jacket with a translucent sparkly nail polish! Bono conceived "The Fly" character during the writing of the song of the same name. As The Fly, Bono took this persona on his Zoo TV World Tour back in 92-93, becoming one of rock's most memorable tours!
Thanks for checking this out, always welcome your visit!

This is awesome!! I wish more people would make custom rock stars like this!! What collection did the guitar come from?? I would love to have a couple of those by themselves. I used to own a Strat back in the day.
