    Hi, I love the Fender Geddy Lee bass but the neck is just to thin for my taste. I LOVE the look of the bass so the question is this. Do Fender (Japan) make a Standard type Jazz like the geddy model? Black with block inlays?. Would it be wise to go and build a Fender 75 type bass using Warmoth parts? Block inlay neck, black body etc?

    I built a Warmoth Geddy Lee a while back & it was a really nice bass!!!!

    Why not buy a USA 75 RI. Last I checked, it was avalible in the Geddy color scheme.

    Ive wanted a five string maple neck with black block inlays for my Fender as long as I can remember. Oh! Matching black headstock too. :eek: :bawl:

    The vintage late 70's Jazzes have a deep U shaped neck that's thicker than the 60's and early 70's originals and japan reissue basses, and it feels very comfortable. I don't know if the current US made 75 reissue trully has the same U shape neck replicated to it or not, so it would be worth investigating. Yes, you can get a '75 reissue in the same color scheme as a Geddy.
