    They don't look correct for a Geddy but one of the Fender experts should be along shortly.

    You don't need to start a new thread. Just post in the one you already made.
     
  4. Probably a replacement neck/tuners (if it's a legit Geddy at all).

    For me, the neck is the biggest selling point on that bass.

    Don't buy that bass, its not a Geddy. Those are dirt cheap tuners, and that neck cut doesn't look like a Fender porfile at all. Looks like a cheap copy to me.

    That is not a Geddy. Don't buy it.
     
  10. +1.
    That headstock is either way too big and the tuners are out of place, or both...
     
  11. To my knowledge, they've always been Japanese.
     
  12. NOT legit

    the signature by itself makes it clear it's not a geddy

    Here's the thing, no one, other than the OP ever even suggested it was a Geddy Lee.

    Front of headstock pic might have been a good idea if you want help ID-ing it.

    Hells no! That signature is Mickey Mantle. Extremely rare bass, note the baseball bat neck profile. :p
