    I just gotta get this off my chest!!

    I played both the Geddy Lee and Marcus Miller Jazz basses the other day. I was TOTALLY blown away by them!!! They're the best sounding basses I've ever had my hands on!!! The Geddy Lee bass had this growl and crunch that just made me wanna crap my shorts. The Marcus Miller bass had that snap and low end that sounded EXACTLY like his Jazz Bass. And to my total surprise, they didn't play half bad!! A big seven thumbs-up from me!!!

    BTW--I played these through a Mesa Big Block 750 and Powerhouse 1000 mostly--I played them through a few other amps just to make sure it wasn't the Mesa, but it was TOTALLY the basses that were knocking my socks off!!
