    He found this bass in a pawn shop in 1979 (I believe that was the year) for about $150-$200. It's funny how this little pawnshop jem keeps hanging around and supplanting the more expensive basses he's played over the years (first the Rickenbackers, later the Wals.) It's almost like he was meant to find that Jazz. ;) It's neat in a corny way how when you watch Rush's new DVD, the bass Geddy is playing most of the time is the very same one he used to record Moving Pictures with.
  2. I always thought that Geddy was born to play Jazz Bass. I never like the way the Rick and the Wals looked on him. BTW, I was really disapointed when I saw a Fender Basstreet poster in a music store, and i found tons of great artist(Boosty, Sheehan,etc.)and Geddy wasn`t there. Why the Foo FIghter`s bassist is there and my man Geddy not?????:eek:


    Peace, Love & Cheap Basses for everyone

    FYI, the bass he is playing now is a Fender Custom Shop recreation of his beloved '72.

    His $200.00 '72 Jazz is priceless.
