The Fender USA Geddy Lee Jazz Bass guitar in black, is a masterful model that truly reflects the unique talents of the legendary Rush frontman. Having wowed audiences with his dynamic skills for over 40 years, and having influenced quite a few big name players along the way, it is only fitting that the Geddy Lee be as magnificent as the man himself. By combining the specs and features of Lee's three favourite basses - two Fender Custom Shop versions of his signature model, and the black '72 Jazz Bass he's been wielding for decades - to create this tonal monster, this is guaranteed to be something special.
Body of beauty
The Fender USA Geddy Lee Jazz Bass takes the form of the much-revered Standard Jazz Bass, which is a noted for its highly comfortable playing feel. Utilising alder as the tonewood, the bass is both lightweight and tonally balanced, offering an exceptional response no matter what kind of music you wish to tackle. In keeping with Lee's own model, the Jazz Bass body has been given a distinctive black finish that is complemented beautifully by a white pickguard.
Fitted to the body is a fast-playing maple neck, which has been shaped to a slightly thicker custom profile, giving it a robust and substantial feel in the hand. Topped with a maple fingerboard, the playability across this neck is a sheer delight. A high-quality feel is achieved thanks to the elegant white binding, which makes transitions between frets as smooth as possible. Your path along the 20-fret fingerboard is guided by white pearloid block inlays, ensuring your lightning fast licks can be executed with speed and accuracy.
To deliver that full-bodied Geddy Lee' sound, Fender has equipped this beauty with two vintage-style single-coil Jazz Bass pickups - one each fitted in the middle and bridge positions. Each pickup has been specially wound and voiced to sound exactly like the pickup arrangement on Lee's own prized 1972 original model. If you're looking to emulate the man himself, then it doesn't get much better than this. Control comes in the form of master volume controls for each pickup and a master tone knob. From gentle fingerpicking to thunderous roar, everything you need is at your fingertips.
A key appointment on this model is the Geddy Lee signature high-mass bridge, which provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for rock-solid intonation. The standard open-gear tuners provide stable and consistent tuning integrity throughout the most energetic of performances.
The Fender USA Geddy Lee Jazz Bass guitar in black is an exceptional model that lives up to the artist's name absolutely. Through a heady combination of classic design features and innovative custom shop appointments, this is a model that isn't just for collectors, but is a working musician's dream.
