    Thanks to everyone who pitched in their opinions on the GL Jazz. I ended up getting one for the band( with a hardshell instead of the floppy bag :rollno: ) just in time to record with. I especially liked the growl from the pickups when pushed as well as the feel of the slimmer kneck. Here is a clip of one of the songs (beware it starts of soft but gets suddenly meaty):

    Now I just need to find a way to keep it, as recording expenses are getting high and Im running low on funds :mad:

    Blood and/or "male release" can get you some extra income. ;) But seriously, try as hard as you can to keep the GL in your hands - those basses are certainly keepers in any meaning of the term.

    Very nice tone on the song, by the way (and the song itself I dig as well). The mellow beginning shows that Geddys aren't just about all the growl, and the rest of the song shows that they can be. :hyper:

    Nice tone and nice recording.

    The GL still remains atop of my GAS list.
    If you ever decide to sell it, contact me.

    I agree that this is one of the GL Basses best qualities (along with looking badass and feeling so smooth). It's gonna really hurt if I have to sell this baby. :crying: I'm trying to purge all my guitar gear first;)

    We had to go back into the studio and remix 6 of the 8 songs again. it just wasn't sitting right with us. I need to find $800 quick. I've already had to sell a nice guitar and amp up to this point. Unfortunately this is next on the list. Hopefully I'll get the money back down the road and buy another. Better yet I can find $800 on the street and keep her!

    Sorry to hear that but the show (and recording) must go on.
    Best of luck although re. selling your Geddy should be straightforward.

    You aren't the only one in your band ditching gear for studio time, are you?

    If you don't mind my asking, don't you think its counterproductive to sell your GEAR to get money for your BAND? What will you do once its gone? A cd isn't worth not being able to play. Either get the $ somewhere else, or leave the songs as is, the people who buy the cd won't notice/care. The entire 11 songs I've released on a cd all sucked to me, but the kids (fans) could care less.

    Sounds great.
    Find a way to keep it. I sold mine and I know I'll just end up getting another one someday.

    BTW, I LOVE the tune.
