I have been Geddy-less for the last while and I have been gigging/practicing with 3 other Fenders (a MIM P, a 1974 P and a Jazz 5er) as well as a Lakland 55-02 and a Bongo 5 lately as my Geddy has been in the shop. Anyways, I picked up the Geddy yesterday (after about 3 months) and I immediately realized what a slap machine this bass is and how much I missed it. EVERY funk or RHCP tune I have been playing lately on other basses sounds waaayyyy better on my Geddy. My MIA Jazz V is good, but not even close to the Geddy What a great bass. BTW.... I still hate the stock tuners but new ones (that fit - hence the delay at the shop) are going to be installed soon.
