    Even though i believe there are a MILLION threads like this, i need advice.

    Geddy Lee Bass


    Fender Highway 1 Jazz Bass

    Pros and Con's of each? I've played both, and love both. I just need some others peoples opinions. This will only be my 2nd bass, and i plan on buying both, just I don't know which one first... Help please!

    wich one did you like best, aesthetics wise.
    Also remember that a P or a J bass can be totally modded so even if in a few months or years you fnd out something you dont like on any of them u can change it.

    I would go with the geddy cos i like the color combo against the "cheap" highway colors.

    They are close in build quality but the GL has a higher quality finish. It makes the GL just feel like a better quality bass.

    I prefer the GL.

  5. That's my thread above. I can tell you that I ordered the GL last night. If you read the reviews at MF and M123 you'll see the GL and Hwy rate about the same. But here at TB the GL is the overwhelming favorite. If you trust the advice you get here (and you should) order the GL.
  6. I'd go GL just to match your screen name

    +1. Seriously. You'll like either one, but the Geddy Lee looks great, and seems to be one of the best deals around at its price point.

    Gotta love those black block inlays. :D
