*edited version* So VERY long story short, I've always had and enjoyed active basses. I tried out my wife's passive Squier and I really liked it. My wife got tired of me playing her bass so I went to buy one of my own. While at the music shop I fell in love with a Geddy Lee filled with mojo. Because of my recent wedding we're pretty well broke so buying the bass is out of the question, my only option is to trade most of my rarely used gear. Even if I trade in most of it I'm still $315 short. So now I'm thinking of throwing a few of my rare effect pedals into the equation. "Condensed by Herrlster" I never thought that I would be this fixated on what boils down to be a Japanese made Fender Jazz Bass. I've considered calling around to more guitar stores to see if they have the "Geddy Lee" jazz bass in stock, but then I'm just spending money on gas just to try out basses to see if they have the same "mojo." As it is I'm looking at having to trade 3 basses, 1 acoustic guitar, & a rare effect pedal for one Japanese made bass. So.......how much gear would you be willing to trade in order to get your hands on one of the best "mojo" basses that you've ever played?
