    Hi, Can anyone post a photo of the side view of a Fender Geddy bass neck just to get an idea of the thickness of it? As i live in the UK i will never get the chance to test out the bass myself.

    Is that a pearloid pickguard? And if it is, did you put it on yourself?

    Sweet bass. I played one of these awhile back and loved it. If I were to get another Jazz, it would be a Geddy Lee. I can't believe they go for around $600 new.

    I have wanted the Geddy bass for so long!!!!! (9 months) but cause i live in the U.K i can't get the bass over here!!!!! (Damm Fender) To buy from the U.S. Including shipping would just be too much. One day i will get this fine bass!!!!!!!

    Modulus Randy Hope Taylor bass going up on ebay.co.uk next week!

    thanks for the kind (jealous?) words about my GL.... that is one bass that I really have grown attached to, and to be quite honest it's the bass out of all or mine that i have had the longest! almost two years now!

    funkasaurus, yeah that is a pearloid pickguard, I think the guard is just the regular Fender... no big deal to replace 'em, infact that bass has had a black pearloid, tortoise shell, the stock white, and the pearloid... I swap 'em out every once in a while.

    AcousticBass, no... you may not have mine... but they go for about 600$ just about everywhere, and even better than that on ebay... save your pennies like i did! :D

    Just a heads-up on this, but there have been reports on the FDP and elsewhere of bad necks on some of these.

    If they're OK, they're OK, but check them closely before taking delivery. Apparently they are so skinny that there are some warp/twist problems on some.

    Neat bass, but be careful, especially on EBay.

    I briefly had a GL. First one I looked at did indeed have a twisted neck. A very bad twist at that, very apparent just by looking down the neck. The one I bought had a couple of raised frets, which the dealer took care of. So, be careful. Try to play the bass your planning to buy before you lay down your hard earned money.
