    I need some help deciding on which bass i should buy. Currently i have a Ibanez gsr 200, which i have owned for about a year and a half now. I have really been leaning twards a Fender Jazz (possibly the Geddy Lee Jazz Bass), but i am keeping an open mind. By the way, i play mostly rock if that helps you any.
    Any suggestions? PLEASE!

    Geddy Lee is good, or jst a plain MIA jazzbass.
  3. I played the Geddy Lee jazz at GC once, and it FREAKIN OWNED!!!

    Buy it, you will be VERRY pleased with it.

    I may even buy one once I have money.
  4. from wat i read in bassplayer, any thing mia is the same thing besides hardware,picups,inlays and wat they use for the fender logo gold leaf vs a plain decal.
  5. I say get the Geddy Lee, but try it out before hand. It has a very slim neck profile, it might not be your thing.

    I have a few basses but keep going back to my Fender MIA JBass. It feels good and sounds great.

    Also the Fender Marcus Miller 4-string is a great bass for the money.

    The Geddy Lee Jazz is a great bass.
    For the price you really can't do much better. It's a great bass for rock, Just ask Geddy.
  10. Stingray? *cough* ;)

    Either the Geddy or the MIA should be fine. The Geddy has a flatter neck radius than most jazzes IIRC.
  12. I love the Geddy Lee and Marcus Miller... either or will make you a very happy person.

    Try 'em out, and chances will be that you'll love 'em.
