What kind of noticable differences are there?
I didn't spend too much time with the Geddy, but what I noticed right away was the neck. It seemed so much slimmer that it became a very different animal than the Jazz basses I've been used to. It seemed brighter, as well.
70s pickup spacing
slimmer profile neck
Poly finished neck
Vintage style tuners
While the standard jazz (mim i assume) has:
60's pickup spacing
Lighter-weight, cheaper tuners
bent steel bridge
generally lower build quality
yeah its made in mexico, and thanks for the input, im thinking about saving up for a Geddy sometime in the near future, but i needed to see if its really worth the extra cash.
Geddy is the way to go.
I play the made in mexico Fender Jazz right now, and i wish i knew that the Geddy was so much better years ago, before i bought the standard one.
I have a '92 MIM jazz that I got off of Ebay. I didn't know what to expect but when I got it all was fine. A couple of chips here and there but it plays and feels well. I got a Geddy a few weeks ago and it's a heavier bass and appears to be have a brighter, punchier sound. The neck is thinner and feels good to me. I put some flats on mine and you can really move on it. The hardware such as the tuners seem to be better than the Standard version. I tune my basses each time I play them but the Geddy holds it's tuning good. The BadAss bridge is nice too. All in all, I do like the Geddy better but I still play the MIM quite a bit.
Just get a Geddy. The End.
Yeah, what you said...get the Geddy.
