what is nice?
I own a Geddy but love em both. Gotta try em before ya buy em.......
Geddy's is very nice IMO.
I love the Geddy Lee, and think that is the best value Jazz that Fender makes.
I have not cared for any of the Marcus Miller J's that I have played.
I voted for the GL. It has that thang happenin'.
i like them both but am partial to the Marcus.
they are both nice... I voted Geddy.. but they are both nice, I don't understand where this question is coming from.
The correct answer to this question is "yes".
i voted on the geddy, but after playin them both, i think there toyally different rides.
Both nice but apples and oranges... Marcus
i dont really like jazz basses to begin with, but when i played the geddy lee i thought it was nice for a jazz, and when i played the MM i really didnt like anything about it. I would not buy either only because i dont like jazzes but everyone on here seems to LOVE geddy lees, so i would just go with the geddy.
I love the simplicity of this thread.
No concerns, nothing!
So to anwser your question...
The Geddy is great. I love the feel, the sound, everything about it is so good.
I've never had the opportunity to play a Marcus Miller, but i'd like to know what of bass this is based upon (No pun intended).
I read somewhere that it was a 70s? Is it just a custom pickguard and controls etc..
This is easy.
You can make a Marcus sound like a Geddy, but you can't make a Geddy sound like a Marcus.
They are both good basses, but Marcus > Geddy
Both very nice IMO, but I'll take the Marcus over the Geddy. A bit more versatile, and works wonderfully for me. My Marcus is my #1 bass for a good reason... it's so good I could sell everything else.
i traded in my G&L Tribute L-2000 and haven't regretted it at all, the marcus miller jazz bass is the best feeling/playing bass i've ever played. I tried a Geddy Lee jazz bass but i couldn't get enough bottom end out of it, and as somebody earlier stated you can make a marcus sound like a geddy lee but not the other way around!
I vote the lee. Cant beat it for the value and playability.
until your battery dies
I A/B'd them when I was purchasing and chose the Geddy... Maybe it was just my frame of mind at the time, 'cause the Marcus is a beautiful bass... The Geddy's neck is taking a bit of time to get used to, but it's a good thing...
I just like passive electronics better...
Another Geddy Lee/Marcus Miller Jazz Bass thread. Yay!
I voted Geddy... 2 reasons: I prefir passive j's, and I reaaaallly don't care for that extra hunk of plastic on the front of the Marcus.
They're both great basses.
I'd choose the Marcus, i just love its tone.
