    ok, i bought an Fender Japan 70's reissue Precision, and well, its as close to the real thing as anything could be...

    Now.. i played a 1976 Jazz Bass at a lokal Store, it was the sweetest bass i have ever tried, it was So amazing, and the tone where great(the EBS Drome might have helped there)

    my experiences with Fender Japan leads me to believe that their Jazz basses also keep the same quality and closeness to the real thing... and i have found one bass that is very "physical attracting" :p

    but my problem is that im gonna have to sell my Geddy to aford this bass, but i have a feeling my hands are to big for the geddy, when playing it, i always have my thumb sticking out over the fretboard... but i also fear that im gonna realy miss my geddy, though this bass is aprox the same minus the bridge and the Neck...

    money aint no issue, for the price i sell my geddy here in this country, i actually get a little money left...

    i dunno what the purpose of this thread is, i need some help...:(

    The tone of the geddy will be different because the position of the bridge pickup is different. I dont think selling your geddy is the answer. Your hand probably isnt too large, your technique is just a little off.

    That blue jazz is cute though. (teheh))

    No, my technique isnt off, becouse i doesnt play this way on my precision.
    both the geddy and that model are designed on the same princip(70's jazz bass..) so they wont sound that different, and the 76 jazz bass i played where the most sweetest sounding bass i had ever played...

    Figjam is right. I had the MIJ 75RI and I have a Geddy. The Geddy's bridge pup is period correct, the MIJ 75RI has the conventional 60s pup placement, incorrect for the 70s.

    ah well.. that i can survive... the only time i have used amp lately is at band practice, so i realy dont know how the geddy sound anymore since i havent been there for a month or so...

    well i guess ill figure on what happens in the next 4 days... if noone have contacted me about the bass by then, ill just leave it and keep the geddy.

    ...Jaco from MX. I'd be interested in taking the Geddy off your hands. Can you give me a price in GBP as to how much you'd be willing to let it go for? For an MXer/TBer ;-) ?

    A very good bassist I know has hands like picnic hams and he does very well with a Jazz. Whether or not you are comfortable with it is another question.
