Well I have been looking to upgrade from my first bass, a really cheap Ibanez (GAXB? is the specific model) and it is short scale. I have narrowed my choices down to two basses: a new Rickenbacker 4003, or a new Geddy Lee Jazz bass. Price is not an issue but we all like to spend less. I play mainly all types of rock but like to dabble in a lot of different things. My rig right now is a BBE BMax pre and an avatar B212 cab. I know that eventually I will own both of these basses but inbetween the purchase of these basses i want to buy a real power amp (currently using a behringer head to power the BBE) and a quality cab. Alright enough babble out of me, here's the real question. Which bass should I purchase first, the Geddy Lee or the rickenbacker 4003? Keep in mind the bass i buy first will be my only bass for at least a couple months. Another quick question, is the Fender 75RI jazz worth the money when compared to a Geddy Lee Jazz Bass?
