Musicman S.U.B. or Geddy LEE Jazz+

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by sk8terguy316, Dec 29, 2004.


  1. Hey I was wonering what, in your opinions, should I get a Geddy Lee Jazz bass or a Musicman S.U.B. I play rock music, blues, Heavy Metal, and Classic Rock. Finally I like slap tunes from RHCP and other slap bands like Marcus Miller. So I would like to know which would you prefer. I know a geddy has a thin neck but I already have an SR400 with a thin neck ( I know they dont compare) just saying but i heard the SUB is just like the stingray and it sounds reall good. thanks

    I own a Geddy and a Stingray, and I have played a friend of mines SUB a bunch of times. IMO they're equal. As far as construction, sound, quality and value I think both are great. Deciding which one to get should be based on your thoughts after you try both out. Its like comparing apples to oranges, the one you choose should be based on which one suits you better.

    For me, the choice would be the SUB in terms of sound. But the Geddy sure is sexy...

    Geddy. SUB is a more budget based instrument. Geddy just kicks butt.

    The SUB. I own both and for the harder rock, you get the great stingray tone and snap through the SUB, but the Geddy is a great choice too...it has great growl and tone..and looks kickass.... so I say try both out and see which one you like.

    IMO they'd both suit you well. You could save up for a used 'Ray though, that wouldn't be too much more?

    I really like MM products. But I'm not crazy about the SUB. I had one for a couple of months and sold it. So I'm going to say go for the Geddy.
