    Bring your basses to sell here...once you hit the ground here your basses triple in value.
  4. Wow....I actually have one of those original 1998 "Limited Edition" Geddys. I didn't know I had such a valuable bass:rolleyes:.

    I guess I shouldn't have defaced it with Dimarzio Model J's, black pickguard, etc as now I guess it's worth nothing....

    Hey! I live in Canada..... can I start a business shipping "rare" GL Fenders to Cali to sell them for $2000? Hell, I'll do it for $1950 each!

    Obviously everyone missed one critical point; it's an easy mistake to make, but this is actually a bass owned by Geddy's long lost brother Getty Lee. It's truly a "Limited Edition" and probably one of a kind (I know it's the first actual "Getty" I've ever seen!), certainly a value at twice the price! :rolleyes:

    Is this similar to George Armani and Hugo Ross suits, Channel purses and Rolecks watches?:confused::D

    You learn something new every day...Richard Meier designs basses, too. ;)
  11. I've seen some CL ads for "Stradivarius" copy violins. I thought all violins copied the Stradivarius design? *shrug*

    I emailed the guy about the Getty Lee bass. He suggested we meet at the Geddy Center to check it out. ;)

    Well it does have new strings
  13. If the guy builds his own basses now, you would expect that he should at least know the names of some well known bass players without misspelling them.

  14. or how much he bought this bass for...

    To quote my man Bo Diddley in Trading Places, "That sucker is so hot, burns my fingers"
    and "In Philadelphia it's worth $50.00 bucks".

    West Coast, Thanks for the post. That gave me a good laugh.

    God Bless, R.
