    Mmm, that would be a Geddy Lee...
     
  3. No clue why Fender.com pulled the picture of the Geddy Lee from their pages, but here's one from Musician's Friend:

    GLs (no, not G&Ls) have nice necks, too.

    Is that a J-retro I spy on your Geddy?
     
  7. Nope....I'm a strictly passive type of guy. I switched out the original knobs with chrome knobs, added a series/parallel switch, and changed the pickguard....thinking of shielding the cavities, but hesitant to do any more mods...

    The Series/parallel switch works on both pickups? what difference in sound does that make?
     
  10. Sure...when you have the pickups in parallel (standard jazz config) you get jazzy, individual single-coil tone from each pickup...when you put the pickups in series, you get a fat, almost humbucking Precision type tone from the pickups.

    That sounds really interesting.

    How did you go about doing that? When I get my Geddy I'd like to do something along those lines. I was thinking about dropping in a J-Retro, but that in itself might suffice my tonal needs.

    P.S. sorry to hijack the thread. :D
     

  12. Check out these threads...I had my local guitar tech do it...cost me $20 but it's an easy enough mod to be done by anyone that can solder:
