the struggle continues.
what are you playing through?? my GL sounds nothing like that . . .
just the GL straight into my mackie, into my 2496 audio card.
bridge pup solo'd, treble rolled off.
Sounds more like a Stingray to me.
hmm...i've never played a stingray that sounded like this.
back she goes!
a Geddy Lee should sound like this:
that's direct into the board, no effects, both volumes and tone up full.

are you looking to buy a GL bass or what? couldn't tell what you were up to . . .
i have a geddy lee.
just deciding whether to keep it or not.
i like the way it sounds on my clip.
and what do you mean by SHOULD SOUND?
People crack me up....
It certainly sounds like a Jazz Bass to me, Fred, but I've just been playing 20 years, so what do I know. Sounds good.
So--are you keeping it, or not?
I mean, with all the lightwave basses, and wacky Modine, it never hurts to have a Fender Jazz around the house to help keep you grounded.
geez... keep the stinking thing, already! If you get rid of it, you will only kick yourself around later about it!
hehe, good point!
yeah, this whole thing is gettin' old, huh?
appreciate the comments!
Hey, I know where you are coming from... but I gotta tell you, my GL makes it through each one of my sell to buy fits... My p basses are getting ready to get going, but the Geddy stays... anyway, I hope you figure it all out... how much time do you have to return it?
i have one more week.
plenty of time to put it through some more "fred tunes".
That sounds awesome. If you didn't tell me it was a GL bass, I would think it's a fretless for sure!!!!
That's cause you're not playing it. Give one bass to 10 different people throught he same amp with the same amo settings & it will have 10 different sounds.
Sounds nice but it dosen't sound like the last 3 or 4 Rush albums to me.
actually, at the recent NAMM, i got that same comment from one of the Brubaker guys.
after playing one of their 5 string fretteds, i stood up to place it back on the stand, and the guy was shocked that it wasn't a fretless.
i guess it is in the hands. and from playing fretless only for years and years!
I liked it. Keeper!
i think teh Geddy Lee is one if my favorite sounding J basses- i liked the sound- i could totally tell it was a j with the back pup soloed and tone rolled off- i would be just fine with that sound-- if there ever was a GL 5- i would probaly buy one- i say its a keeper-
That's a pretty classic Jazz bass tone to me. It sounds pretty cool, actually. I like that dissonant riff you're playing as well.
I've never heard a Stingray that gets that same Jazz bass tone.
If you like the way it plays, then I'd keep it. If i didn't have a MIJ '75 RI in natural/rosewood, I'd get a Geddy Lee Jazz in a heartbeat. Shoot, I'm still considering it just for the variety...
Sounded like a J with bridge pup cranked. It also sounds like a keeper to me.
Nino was right, I thought it sounded like a fretless. Cool sound, you must have a very relaxed fret hand to get that sound.
PMKELLY Let me know when you want to get rid of your p-basses!!!!!
