    Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass is coming out soon. I’ve read that the book will contain a ton of photos of 200+ basses that Geddy owns. 2019 will be a tough year to suppress GAS.
     
  2. $50 for a picture book...that seems to be a might steep

    Its $40 and it has words too.

    I got one coming, just for kicks.

    EDIT: Up to $67.50 on Amazon now, still on pre-order and promised by Dec 18.

  4. The only place I happened to see it was on Amazon, listed for $50 but still....A late night porn-bass read for sure. I might actually get it myself with the upcoming holiday and I have been a good boy...naaah

  5. As my avatar might suggest, I've been eagerly awaiting this tome. I'll admit the special edition bundles on rush.com are pretty cool, but I've paid less for actual instruments.

    As an aside, when I attended the screening of Time Stand Still, they were running trivia questions and factoids before the movie started. One of the questions was "How many basses did Geddy bring on the R40 tour?" I of course got it correct - "D. All of them."

    I don’t know about the hard copy, but for the ebook price, it’s a good deal.

    A lot cheaper than Apples book of pictures.

    Now that Rush isn't touring, it'd be awesome if Geddy opened a bass museum so we could see them up close.

    Right? For that kind of money it was a missed opportunity to include an actual bass. A lovingly-packaged box of Rotos is about the most useful thing in the BigHugeUltra box. Easy pass (unfortunately).

    I am, of course, getting the regular book though!

    Man I'd love to have this, as Geddy is my main man. But I saw him say that it's dedicated to basses from the 60's and 70's and mainly oddball stuff which I have zero interest in so I can't really justify the price for myself. Hopefully Volume Two will cover his Wal's and Steinbergers!

    That from the book??? Sweet!

    Hey scan those two pages clearer and I won't have to buy the book! Don't worry, Geddy's got my money already. I've bought like 43 different releases of Moving Pictures alone :)
