The Fender Geddy Lee Jazz Bass in Black is one of our favorite Fender Signature models. Not only is it the signature model of one of the most beloved Progressive Rock Bassists of all time, but is a darn fine Jazz bass for any player! An Alder body is finished in Black and helps this bass weigh in at 9 lbs 12 oz.
The Super Skinny C Shaped neck is preferred by many players due to how little string-to-string stretching it takes. The neck is made from Maple and carved to a thin c profile. Not only does it play well but a black-bound fingerboard and black block inlays take this bass to the next level! Specs include a 1.5" Nut Width, 34" scale length, a 9.5" fingerboard radius, and 20 Medium-Jumbo Frets. If you like a thin, fast-playing neck, the Geddy should be 1st on your list!
A pair of American Vintage Jazz Bass Single-Coil Pickups each get their own volume controls, and a master tone control allows you to sheer the treble off as needed. The allure of the 2 pickup Jazz Bass is to blend the two pickups together to your heart's content. These pickups are perfectly steeped in Vintage Sauce so nailing the tones of old Rush Recordings (and plenty of others!) is easily within its wheelhouse.
The Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is an exact replica of the tonally singular instrument that Rush's revered bassist/vocalist has riffed away on in front of millions of devoted fans worldwide and on many a mega-selling album. Lee remains an acclaimed and enormously influential bassist and, with mean, mean stride, his best-selling and elegantly styled signature model makes your tone crackle with life and bristle with the energy, with massive low end, guttural midrange, and crystal-clear highs.
