Geddy Lee Has Arrived!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by jefft54, Jun 21, 2005.


  1. I know this isn't a custom, super expensive, made in the land of Oz bass, but it is mine - and it's SPECTACULAR!
    Seriously, my Geddy arrived this afternoon and it is truly beautiful to see and play. My thanks to all the TB'ers who responded to my "what bass" thread and suggested this instrument. I was hesitant because of the black color, but when you see it in person against the white pick and maple board, you realize this is no pawn shop bass. The neck feels perfect and this CIJ came almost perfectly set up. Only needed to tune it and it was ready to go.
    Thanks again, you know who you are!!!

    congratulations another happy Fender Jazz Owner :bassist:
     
  5. I don't know if Geddy will rule the world, but it will rule in my house, at least until my next axe arrives!
     
  6. Gee, I wonder if I'll now become one of the Fender Rules - all others drool - crowd.

    The first thing I thought of when I saw this thread title was the Geddy Lee Jet.

    Great bass, best of luck!

    Pyrohr, the Geddy Lee model is only available in black.

    BTW, my buddy replaced the white pickguard with a tortoise shell, and it looked even more beautiful to our eyes... matter of taste, stunning either way! :cool:

    How long did you have to wait for it after you ordered it?

    This is exactly the way mine was, too, and I've barely had to tweak it at all in almost a year now. It's friggin' unbelievable. About the best J I've ever played (of MANY). The only thing I did to it was put DiMarzio J's (DP123) to lose the hum (but KEEP THE TONE!) and change from VVT to BVT. Other than that, I just play it and totally love it. Congrats! :)

    I had the chance to try this bass at GC last week. It had a satisfyingly fat tone. :bassist:

    Cool...

    Mine got here on Friday...

    I've been liking it so far... The action is actually a little TOO low for me right now. Neck needs a bit of a tweek.

    There is a weird ringing vibration on the open E...

    Kinda like a wolf tone.... I'm going to check it out before I decide to keep it...

    Everything else is great though... nice bass!!!
