MGR/Billy's review"Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass"

Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
This is the Geddy Lee Signature Jazz Bass by Fender. You are probably well aware of Geddy Lee's work with classic rock gods Rush. The snotty, distinct fat bass tone can be had now in Geddy's signature Fender.

These have been out for a few years now. I'm going to guess since 2008. It is still in production as of 2011 and is now offered in a vintage 3 tone sunburst.I picked up a used black Geddy Lee bass with gig bag for $500.

<a href="Resource id #1">Resource id #1</a>

I really like the look. A black jazz bass, maple neck and black block inlays just really looks sharp.

None at all.

The two features that give the Geddy Lee model its distinct tone is the bridge, a Leo Quann Badass II Bridge and the wider spacing between the two single coil jazz bass pickups.

The body is made from alder wood. The neck is a one piece neck made from Maple and is shaped in the popular C shape.

Sound just as cool as you look with this strapped around your neck!

Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
The Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass I have was made in the USA. I'm not sure how many frets it has but has a single pick up and a volume and tone control for it. It is made very well and while it is the Geddy Lee model, this is a real Jazz Bass and sounds and feels like a Jazz Bass to me.

UTILIZATION

The neck on this bass has a very nice feel to it. It is easy to play on the last frets and just feels good all around when you are playing it. It isn't too heavy, but isn't the lightest bass I've played. I love the sound I can get out of this as it definitley has a 'Geddy Lee' like sound. It is easy to get a good sound from it and the tone control allows for the ability to make a few different types of tones.

SOUNDS

The bass fits my style of music, which is mostly rock, pop and folk. It works great as a kind of 'lead bass' type sound and can also sound really heavy and full to fill up that bottom end of the spectrum. I have used it mostly with a Peavey bass amp for live shows and usually record it with a DI box. You can get a pretty clean tone from it and you can also get it to sound pretty gritty as well - most of it is in the fingers, but the bass is definitley pretty versatile.

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using the Geddy Lee Jazz Bass for about four years. For the price it gives me a bass with a good feel and tone that doesn't break the bank. While you could probably sound like Geddy with this bass, it isn't limited to just sounds like that and is an overall good sounding bass. While it isn't as good as some of the other Jazz Basses I have played, for the price it is a great option that sounds pretty darn good.

Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
Japanese-made pieces US. Polyurethane finishes irreproachable. Good gloss (beware of scratches and cleaning products)
Used acquired (almost new) 850, 38 prs prices in some new traders beyond the Rhine we taira with 3 year warranty ... That alone
Geddy Lee Signature ct mcaniques ???? why be so timor show the guy who contributed to the design of such a low ???
Microphones VINTAGE US. No active: finally a non dnatur its natural as we love them. No frills is simple and effective
Leo Quan Badass II bridge for better sustain
The mcaniques are basic but it works
Rglages 2 volumes + 1 Tone: it is simple and efficient (can be a bit feeble neck pickup !!!), but hey that's saying something ngatif
technical specifications in FENDER website at: http://www.fender.fr/products//search.php?partno=0257702306
9/10 because of mcaniques

USE

The handle is the strong point of this bass. It is very late. Mapple all floors with under vernis.Ils painted inlay could have put pearl inlays for rhausser the line as the MARCUS MILLER.
The handle is underlined black sides of the handle. It has the mouth
The handle provides exceptional touch which allows good fluidity of play. Lorque I bought I tried low 8 marks e whose models DIFFERENT MUSICMAN, GODIN, VIGIER crack and I ' I tried the GEEDY LEE, c'tait fold in 10 minutes. I could not unhook me. The fingers glide naturally and you find yourself trying techniques that are less facilemement mastery.
The access to acute (desti- nations most recently frets) is not easy nor difficult as other low ... but this is a JB: including 20 boxes ... Who plays on 21me 22me me and even 24 boxes ???
The ergonomics are excellent with a reasonable weight, it is less heavy than MARCUS MILLER and much more balanced (no heaviness in head)
The sound is very round and has nothing to do with MARCUS MILLER I had before (inrglable without SADOWSKY and very average or dcevant due to active electronics which is "drooling" sound ... YUCK !!!!).
Small point, the sound is a bit too mdium my taste, but that's subjective.

SONORITS

Once apprhend the mix of neck and bridge pickups (5 minutes), the sound is Introduced and continuously without weaknesses
2 volumes + 1 Tone and send. We send the bass and treble to max to create the mdium and refined.
I for rules 2 3/4 microphones and ditto tone, it gives a good percussion string (SLAP ideal, funk ...). From this rglage if we trslgrement change the volume of one of the microphones, the sound changes dramatically (large round and severe).
Under only feature of a good amp drrire which will offset some simple rglages bass, all styles are possible with this bass.

NOTICE GLOBAL

5 days and I never left. I do not sleep with my wife's sake but if I could.
The look is fabulous: black and white, it's simple, vintage display (no color rainbow and other colors drooling). White plate is a little cheap (not in quality but in color), I'll replace it with pearl pickguard (pearly white or black that will bring out the fine line and launches the beast.
In my opinion one of the best value / quality price FENDER since 1998. It is better than a bad one Japanese Mxicaine why the quality is randomized.
If I had to change something ??? Nothing but the pickguard for the look and mcaniques by HIPSHOT (though I have gained at LOTO).
Note 10: 9/10 for excellence does not exist except in the virtual world of bassists.

finger iguana's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It is what I was looking for"

Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass
This is a Japanese, the violin is superb.
I changed the pickups for Dimarzio dp123 and the difference is felt especially on the bridge pickup. I also changed the mechanical for Schaller, because with the original ones I raccordais both pieces.

UTILIZATION

I took only the handle. This is for me the perfect round, but each has its vision. It is extremely thin, it slides alone. The knobs are quite strange, it looks like everything is going in the last quarter.

SOUNDS

I play in a group of Funk, Soul, Motown and I think all the sounds I need (good fat, round to slap any problem).
I play a little Bastard Ashdown 550 cab + 4x12 "600w studio and a Ashdown AD-600 + track Eliiot 1518c + 4x10" outside.

OVERALL OPINION

The bass is what I wanted. It is extremely versatile reliable long as microphones and mechanical is changed. I sold all my basses and it remains unique in my possession. I do not know what value the new Geddy Lee which are manufactured in Mexico. on the other hand, for a Japanese, go for it.
