Hey folks! Looking into getting a new bass, would be replacing my older Ibanez sr500. The Ibanez is nice, but don't like the neck, fret spacing, and wanting to get away from active pickups. I've played the new American Professional at the MIM Geddy Lee at my local shop, and they sounded very similar and played very similar, but with a price difference of like $700 (Cdn) No reason in my mind to pay up (other than color or string-thru) for the Pro. Another shop a couple hours away has an American Standard left in stock, only a bit more $ than the Geddy Lee. Thoughts on how the American Standard compares to the Geddy Lee? Would be for live gigs, jamming, some amateur recording.
