    Do not pay full price for a new geddy. I think they were $699 when they came out, and they have raised the price because of the demand. Definitely buy used for around $600 or less. I sold my Geddy around 1 year ago for $400. It's a buyers market out there with the economy, take advantage.
     
  4. hmmm. is there a way to see if a used one is broken or messed up?
     
  5. yea.......play it! check for cracks, ask for pictures, examine it with all your knowledge, plug that bad boy in, and let her rip, if there is no sound, its broken, if there are scratchy pots (i.e. turn all control knobs, and if you here a crackle) then they need to be replaced, make sure you use all the knobs, turn them all to see if the sound is changed, and/or the volume is lowered/raised!

    They go for $600-700 on here all the time. If you spend $1200 on it, you've acted foolishly.

    There is no Guitar Center in Tampa? If all else fails,drive over to Bass Central.

    How much is the SX version?

    Ok, sorry, that was my only chance to be first in line to drop that one.

    Follow the advice above, carry on.

    Buy one used. I just put a price on mine of $550 shipped before I traded it.
     
  13. They are up to around $1200 new. A couple years ago when I came close to buying one they were $799. So they have gone up a lot in a short time. If I were you I would go used. They can be found in the $600 to $700 range if you keep an eye out.
     
  14. I haven't seen any information on where the Geddy's are made to warrant a $1200 price tag. Seems rather hefty if it's a mexican Jbass with a BA Bridge and the Geddy Lee name stamped on it. :confused: I never understood what was different about it other than that.
     
  15. They are made in Japan. It is a replica of Geddy's favorite Jazz. Has the bound and blocked neck, USA pickups, BA bridge, etc. So there is more to it then a Mexican Jazz. That being said I still think $1200 is a bit much for one!
     
  16. I bought one about 5 years ago brand new at GC for $569 and they threw in new strings and a cable.... great bass but I can't understand why they've gone up so much.
