Fender USA Geddy Lee Jazz Bass - Black
Bassists have loved the signature Geddy Lee Jazz Bass for years. The new U.S.A. Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is a new version that combines the specs and features of Lee' three favorite basses”two Fender Custom Shop versions of his signature model and the original sleek black ™72 Jazz Bass that Rush' revered bassist/vocalist has riffed away on in front of millions of devoted fans worldwide and on many a mega-selling album. The neck has a thicker custom profile, topped by a maple fingerboard with elegant white binding and white pearloid block inlays. For enormous tone that crackles with life and bristles with the energy, its two vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups are specially wound and voiced to sound like those on Lee' prized 1972 original, and a Geddy Lee signature High-Mass bridge provides rock-solid intonation.
A Greatest Hits Instrument
Lee's new signature bass blends the best features of his two Custom Shop models with those of his original ™72 J Bass®.
Custom "C" Neck Shape
A thicker "C" profile imparts a more substantial feel to the slim and comfortable J Bass® neck.
Geddy Lee High-Mass Bridge
Specially designed with direct input from the acclaimed Rush bassist, the High-Mass bridge on this bass has a cool contemporary look. It also has a lot of metal, which means it has a lot of mass for rock-solid sustain, intonation and tuning stability.
White Binding and Inlays
White appointments, including sleek pearloid block inlays, instill elegance into this awesomely energetic instrument.
Custom Voiced Pickups
A pair of American Vintage ™70s Lee signature pickups provides plenty of punch and clarity along with genuine vintage Fender vibe.
Special Headstock Signature
Lee's signature the back of the headstock commemorates the lasting legacy of one of rock 'n' roll's most versatile and technical bassists.
