    A dealer near me has something special on order.

    A Fender Custom Shop Geddy Lee '72 Jazz Bass, Limited Edition, 1 of only 50 to be built. Sale Price - $6100.00

    I'm betting all 50 will be sold within just a few weeks of release, and like the Gibson Ltd. Edition Alex Lifeson ES-355, the 2nd hand prices will do nothing but go up.
    I'm not planning on buying it (very happy with my 1st-year CIJ Geddy, Thank You), but I am eager to see & play this one. :bassist:

    For that kind of money, you could buy a real 72 Jazz that will appreciate in value.

    I'd like to see what they produce. CS basses are the most impressive basses coming out of Fender these days.

    I wouldn't mind seeing it. I hope it doesn't just look like a lightly reliced Geddy signature model but I have a feeling that it will.

    You could indeed find a real '72 for that price, but you might have to find & try several of them before you found one with the playability & sound of a CS model.
    I agree that the CS is putting out Fender's best work these days, and I'm liking their Japanese offerings as well.

    I haven't seen the official specs yet, but I'm guessing it will sport a medium to heavy relic treatment.
    I'm wondering which version they chose to duplicate?
    Neck # 1 (original, black blocks), # 2 (replacement neck from Geddy standard sig. model, black blocks), or # 3 (current CS neck with pearloid blocks).
    I'm guessing the back of the neck will be unfinished like all of his current Jazz basses.

    I wish they would put one out with pearloid blocks... I'd be all over that.

    Wow, I would have thought the announcement of a new Fender Custom Shop model - especially a new Geddy Lee model - would have generated a bit more conversation than we have going on here....:meh:

    Sure would love to see some specs on that like weight and pickup type. My Geddy feels great in my hands,couldn't imagine how the CS would play.
