    For reference, I bought mine for $535 brand new, plus tax. No case. That was about 3 years ago. You have to know that they have jumped in price a lot recently. I think that the things he points out would also not affect the sound or playability. And it includes a decent case. That is probably a good deal - maybe not the deal of the century, but certainly it sounds like a good deal.

    yeah, Fenders jumped CAD300 in Canada...ouch
     
  4. 6 hours left? It will go through the roof before auction's end; these are the hotness right now. Aren't there a couple on TB?
    I predict $750 or more ending price, +shipping.
     
  5. I wouldnt bother. Just a few months ago I got one in pristine condition for $350{w/good gig bag}. You will come across better if you keep a very keen eye out on all sales type forums.

    U can get one used for usually between $500-700...I'd find a used one with a cheap BIN price and get that. Definitely don't get new though. They're almost twice the price new.

    350 for a used Geddy Lee??...probably the deal of the year.
    This one looks beat. I would hold off and try and pick up a cleaner one either here on TB or Ebay.....
     
  8. I got mine on Craigslist from a non-avid bass player who just wanted to emulate Geddy.

    That's at least 200 less than you'd pay on Ebay......nice score!

    Keep your eyes open. Recently saw a Geddy on Craigslist for $300 near me but it was gone before I could snag it.
