MIM Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
After much deliberation, due diligence (maybe not enough) and sleepless nights, I decided to buy a Hecho en Mexico Geddy Lee Jazz... I'm not impressed with the finish. In fact, it does not look like a 3 tone sunburts should look IMO.
I received my Ged JB a few days ago and out of the box noticed the edges of the frets were fairly rough, which seems to be a highly common gripe among Ged JB buyers. Not a huge deal, alas, one should reasonably expect a well finished Fender Geddy Lee Jazz bass. Surely not a tall order.
My main gripe is the sunburst. Compared to MIJ/CIJ sunburst finishes, which are a nice black/red/orange glow, the MIM GL's seem to have a crummy greenish brown hue.
Has anyone else noticed this? I'm contemplating sending it back or selling it to find a nice MIJ/CIJ.
Thanks for any input.
