    Thanks if you can give your opinion. I see a lot of these Geddy Lees being sold everywhere (craigslist, etc) Is there something wrong with them? Thanks

    The Gedddy Lee is just a Jazz bass with Seventies styling and a very thin neck. It will be great for disco or funk. Alot are for sale because they are very common basses.

    Fantastic bass for the money. You would be hard pressed to find a genre it couldn't sit well in.

    Its my weapon of choice and i cant fault it. Actually I can. We have just had the winter to spring change and ive had to give the truss rod a tweak to get the neck to curve a bit. It was near dead flat, which while the slap sounded pure awesome, i play heavy rock, and i needed to get some height in the action. Because the necks are so thin, they can be prone to needing set ups every so often to accomodate climatic changes. Or so i have been told. But seriously man, awesome sounding bass. Well built, pretty, (although i replaced my scratchplate with a custom checker plate number) and just all round goodness. Personally i am stoked with it.

    Thank you Baird and Yanikins. Appreciate your opinions! Sounds great.
     
  8. this is a great bass. i play hiphop, jazz, funk, dub/reggae, rock and punk and this bass works for all of it. i have to sell my to pay the bills, which is a real drag. but i have an american P that i just cant part with, so the geddys got to move on and enrich someone elses life.
