Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass - Black user reviews
- ^ ^ Really beautiful bass made in Japan
20 boxes shame but hey you get used to it, two jazz bass pickups type with two knobs of rglage
ass bass bridge 2: superb prcis, say anything
rglage the two pickups and a Tone knob if I'm not mistaken ^ ^
the handle is probably what makes this bass is so good, it's a pleasure to play over the end, dare I say perfect
- As said prcedement the handle is a real highway, the ACCS is very easy to acute, however, I find it a bit PSE but you get done quickly, the sound is really good I play punk and it suits me perfectly, are the serious and treble sound really good, and as you say that slap is happiness, good sound slap it right!
- Through the prog rock, punk, pop etc ... even more R & B sounds, it sounds a hell of a good is that if you play black metal as an Ibanez or another switch, if not for the rest Seems niquel, I play with a fender 100W rumble and two great all agree, I like a bass sound with great bass and I put the middle and treble in the middle about, I find a perfect for my style of play
- Overall Opinion
- I have this bass for 3 months now, I love her look especially on the neck between the frets, black keys show it off, the handle is great, nothing wrong on this, I for one year jou on an Ibanez SR765 is sure it has nothing to do And it's not even comparable because these models are too DIFFERENT (5 strings, active for the Ibanez etc ...) In Regarding the price, 1080 with nine Pouche a rigid stand, a strap, all in the negotiate and fender soft case comes with, it seems proper
I think I would change may be low with the exprience because I would need a bass that sounds a little more hard-mtal but I do not regret my choice, I love this bass is trs a good investment
- See notice below.
To handle: Between the delicacy of the subject and the quality of the varnish is actually a highway.
For cars: I do not know quite what to think. I kept the original ones which I do not pose a problem when I play.
The quality of the polish of the body seems to me to be good because I only managed to make it a little tchard in a year and a half I took him with me at work to play at MIDI! I would say that the whole gives a sense of quality both in the elements used in the assembly.
- The handle? Frankly I do not see how there could be a more enjoyable round. We say the measure. With a good varnish. The thumb has very easy access to the E string which is nice to slap. Access to acute not particularly difficult.
Totally agree with Larrytron: this bass is made for the slap. It snaps, it sounds even without amp (I think it comes from other type of frets used) and above the neck is fast. It's easy. it's been a year and a half that I and the handle has not moved: he was perfectly settled Ha.
- For me to base it on his "jazz bass" so the standard in my opinion. I set up a J-retro preamp above for more fishing and a wider range of sounds without affecting the next Jazz bass (I preferred to keep the original pickups). Half the time I play without the preamp. I used mostly at home when I plugged directly into the sound card and / or headphones when I play.
- Overall Opinion
- What I like most is the ease of play slap in particular. But it remains a versatile low: Thurs finger, pick, tapping, harmonics without any sound problems. I use it to repeat, on my amp (Ampeg B5R) and my sound card (emu0404) with which I play a lot with headphones.
I put the armor and shielded cable to reduce the paratroopers to the max without changing the pickups. Blackpearloid plate and straplocks.
- The Geddy Lee is made in Japan. vintage look resolutely (reedition model 72) is the signature model bassist of Rush, progressive rock.
The body is alder and the neck / fingerboard 20 frets maple veneer is a pretty black binding adorns the handle and the rectangular inlays (also black) are used as landmarks. It reveal what are simply a layer of paint under the varnish, I think it is good but limited esthetique.Pickguard white.
The bridge is a Badass II which is very good, very yes!
Eslectronique part is very simple: two volumes, one to deal with Tone 2 fender jazz pickups USD.
profile of the handle is excellent, the sleeves thinner than usual Jazz Bass D with a flattened shape, a highway!
Oh I forgot a set of mechanical vintage Fender. I put a 7 because of the mechanisms that are the real stews ... a change immediately after purchase!
- Comfort level of play, this bass is a killer! It is his weight, like all jazz but it's still more than adequate!
This is for low slapper stick thin can do anything he can do on a bass. It is what one expects from a jazz bass. Playability, comfort.
a very good Fender. The handle provides perfect better than a US feelings for my taste! Even if it is varnish, which may not appeal to everyone.
10 for the round that kills!
- The sound is definitely that of a jazz. The two microphones and a donf is paradise! The pickups are a bit feeble and in dire need of especially low bridge pickup, but the amp quickly corrects these small defects.
From a fan of Marcus Pasto through Larry Graham (or even Geddy Lee, if so!) All sounds are arranged. After all it's a Jazz Bass so it's going to sound like a warwick ... You can do everything with: Rock, Funk, Jazz, Latin ...
She is branch, at home on a GK 700 RB and A 4 * 10 I have everything I want sounds like, well fat on the neck pickup, full with two microphones and very articulate on the micro bridge.
This config micro proven, and you plug it sounds!
9 for microphones for improvement
- Overall Opinion
- I use it for more than two years, I changed the mechanical after a week they were so rotten, I also changed the pickups for Villex, which in addition to a higher level of output and offer the possibility of serious squeeze mediums thanks to a dedi knob and while passive! If Mssieur! I also put a black pickguard, which improves the look in my taste, very classy!
So it's a very good bass! Handle of a dream of good features like the Badass bridge which provides more sustain. a very good sound.
For me this bass is the best that Fender has released at qualitprix it has nothing to envy to a US (far from it!). It takes about 1000 euros for the beast, at least in Germany /.
This choice I would do without hesitation.
