Im in the market for a new bass. I want a 4-sting black Jazz bass with a maple neck. Im between the 2008 American Standard, and the Geddy Lee signature model. For those of you who have played both, Id really appreciate a comparison of the two. The price difference is not that big of a deal to me. Im mostly concerned with playability and sound- I really dig a bright sounding maple neck. I plan on installing an Audere Jazz plate preamp, so comments along those lines are welcomed too. Also, does the Geddy Lee bass have real inlays or are they painted?
