    Yeeeeeeeeeks!

    that and the Marcus Sig are a couple of the finest Jazz basses i've ever played.

    the GL especially.

    and for $629, not bad.

    VEEEEERYYYYYY tempting. now i want to try a Jaco Fretted!

  2. I tried a sting and a GL at a store the other week.

    Just, not my speed. But this was at store levels, through unfamilar gear. The sting bass felt/sounded better. Very wierd huh.

    Now the 55-01 skyline.....I can't go back there. I'll do something stupid to my bank account.

    didn't do anything for me at all.

  4. Exactly man. I tend to have a wide taste, but some things leave me cold. Very few production basses strike my fancy anymore. I guess I look for a overall value most of the time..
     
  5. Let me guess, you went to Sam Ash on Beach Blvd.

    I played a GL when I was up in Manhattan over the holidays. Those guys take care of their equipment up there and it was setup perfectly and played like butter. I was very impressed.

    I am now torn between trying for a GL or getting a Warwick Corvette fretless from a local store. I still have a week until payday to make that difficult decision thankfully.

    IMO, the Fender Geddy Lee is the best production bass Fender makes!!!!!
