Is this for real? Why no "small print" stuff under the Fender logo?
Link to ebay item
I think that's the way the Geddy is built. Isn't it to 70's specs? Looks genuine to me.
Yep. a '75 I believe.
Thanks, guys, BUT... on this photo from the music123 site, some of the small print I referred to is visible.
Why isn't there any on the for sale item?
I see no small print on my geddy
Some minor details on the Geddy have changed over time... for example, I know a guy who's Geddy says limited edition on the neck heel plate, mine doesn't. I also think mine has no fine print on the headstock, and yeah, they're designed after a '72 (his mod'd one, tho of course).
Mine also has the limited edition plate but no small print. I think that was a small change Fender slipped into the mix a while ago.
Thanks again, guys. I've been gassing for a Geddy for some time, mainly 'cos I love the neck, but also because I fancy a completely passive Jazz (I already have active versions - see my profile).
Trouble is I also have a mild case of P bass gas that affects us J bassers from time to time. Therefore, I'm thinking of putting together a bass with a Geddy neck, P or J body (undecided which yet) with a P/J config (probably Nordies), BAII bridge. What do you think? Any comments or suggestions for components or aesthetic aspects welcomed.
Personally, I'd LOVE to have another Geddy neck to build a J around, but I think his price is too high, so it ain't hap'nin for me on this one. For that kinda' dough, I'll order a figured Warmoth or a Moses.
I hear you, Vic - the price doesn't seem bad to me in UK terms with the current exchange rate. I thought about Warmoth, but the whole point really of me starting this project would be to use a Geddy neck. I was thinking of putting it on a Warmoth body though, probably with a nice traditional burst finish.
That would be killer.
Mine is also of the 'Limited Edition neckplate/no small print' variety.
Looks legit to me.
