I had some extra gig money burning a hole in my pocket so I went down to the nearest Guitar Center(30 day return policy). I was originally deciding between an active or passive SUB but on a whim I had them get me a Geddy Lee from a different store to see how that was. It came in the next day. I checked the body condition for scratches, checked the neck and relief for any malformations, and plugged it in to an inexpensive Behringer 3000T which is my practice amp.Tone was as rich as people have been saying on this website since they first came out.I started really liking this bass.The tuner on the G string had alot of play, like others had noticed and but other than that, it felt like my next bass. They were nice enough to throw in a free SKB case so for $650.00 I walked out a happy man- at least until the next purchase. It's got some great sounding vintage type pickups with cloth wiring, event the control cavity has copper foil shielding in it. I needed to intonate it and set the pickup height lower but the neck relief was fine.The fret wires are a bit sharp feeling along the G side of the neck but this can be polished off- it really doesn't require much but I prefer a totally smooth feel.Unless something comes up, like neck problems, this is definitely a keeper. I searched this forum for all related articles on the Geddy Bass before I bought. Apparently Schaller makes a replacement tuner for $95.00. (TK081-001). Are these the way to go or does Fender make a replacement too? What did you folks use to replace your tuners?
