    Hey, everybody, I'm exhausted so I probably won't be on long tonight, but I just wanted to say that my Geddy arrived from Rob/bikeplate today, and it's really wonderful. I'm diggin, the band's diggin, and it's just great. Definitely gonna replace the pickguard, probably with black-and-silver paisley, and maybe switch out the tuners, but those are really, really minor things right now. Overall, I absolutely love it.

    Sorry, no camera, but, c'mon...you all know what these look like. ;)

    ps: Thanks again to Rob. :smug:

    I played a GL last year. I loved it! The neck was so smooth and quick.

    Congrats on a killer bass!

    Alright, gang, update on the pickguard. Right now, it's black with white pinstripes, which I did myself...before I say how, keep in mind that it loosks really, really cool, and I have a friend who's done this and encountered no problems...

    Yep. Black electrical tape. Covered most of the pickguard, leaving only thin white stripes (running lengthwise, i.e. parallel with the neck). It just drips with cool.

    And, just in case anybody's worried, none of the tape is anywhere near being stuck on the body. I'm firmly opposed to tape, stickers, etc. on a bass's body. :p

    I had a white pearl on mine for a little while before switching to black. I like the black a lot better... I didn't like the contrast with the white. :)

    I like the black more too. Man, the Geddy is already so upgraded, you replace the tuners and BAM all you have left to do are visuals.
