A signature Jazz bass made to the specifications of the prog rock trailblazer, Geddy Lee.

Mean, mean stride. The Geddy Lee Jazz Bass guitar 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. The bass has an alder body; the thin one-piece C-shaped maple neck has a maple fingerboard with black binding and black rectangular position markers. The two vintage Jazz Bass single-coil pickups crackle with life and bristle with energy. Other features include chrome hardware, vintage-style tuners and a Leo Quan Badass Bass II bridge.

Includes gig bag.

  • Best price, incredible guitar, just as good as Fender's American made counterparts!

    As reviewed by Louis Farah on 7/25/2013

    Found the lowest price at another online nusic outlet and Guitar Center matched it without debate. Being a long-time musician playing in a successful casual band, I was a little hesitant about buying anything less than an American-made Fender product. I had been playing the same P-Bass that I bought new in 1972 and because of its value and collectibility, I decided to put the old girl to rest rather than continue to use it on the road. Today's music requires a bass guitar that can emulate a variety of sounds, so I made the decision to buy a Fender Jazz Bass that could provide a wider spectrum of sounds in the music that my band plays, which ranges from the 70's to today's top 40 hits. The new Fender Geddy Lee Jazz basses are built in Mexico. Not America, not Japan. I figured for a reissue Fender guitar built in Mexico, how much could I expect? My expectations were certainly not high considering the fact that an American made Jazz Bass was at least $1,5000 or more. I came home, pulled out the guitar and within the first two minutes, it simply blew me away. I am 60-years-old musician and I've played in cover bands since 1966. I own 10 guitars, all Amercian made. Telecasters, Stratocasters, Les Paul, P-Bass, 5 string Jazz bass, Ricky 12 string, etc. etc. blah, blah, blah. This guitar is right up there with the best of them. The Geddy Lee Jazz Bass that I bought played perfectly right out of the box. No set-up was needed. It weighs just as much as an American Jazz Bass: Heavy wood, full of tone with tons of sustain and volume. The quality was unmatched in every respect. It plays like a dream with the thin neck, maple fretboard and the finish is spot-on. The hardware is just as good as the rest of the Fender product line. Fender has come a long way in improving the quality of it's reissue products, and this Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is proof of that. Usually one looks past any imperfections if the rest of the guitar is satisfactory in other respects, but this guitar was impressive without any imperfections. The guitar is great, but so was the service that I got from the sales staff at the Sherman Oaks Guitar Center. The guitar needed to be ordered because I wanted the 3-tone sunburst finish. The salesman said it would be about a week to get it because I ordered it just before the Holiday weekend. The guitar was in the store four days later. I got the conformation on my order directly from Fender one hour after I left the store. Four days later I got an email that the guitar had arrived at the store. TWO MINUTES after I got the email, the salesman called to say the guitar was there. Imagine that in today's world: A high quality guitar sold at an extremely reasonable price by a music store with service that is unsurpassed. Certainly a rarity in today's business would. Maybe that's why I have been buying my gear from the Guitar Center since the early 1970's. Cone to think of it, I bought my 1972 P-Bass from the Guitar Center!

  • Lowest action you can get without any fret buzz.

    As reviewed by Don Howell on 12/11/2012

    Finally, I purchased a Getty Lee MIJ Jazz bass. Most reviews rate this above the one's made in the US. I bought my used at GC the day it showed up...only wish I could afford a new live with a few scratches. I always wanted this bass due to the neck design. I don't like Fenders in general, too overpriced, and I never liked the feel of the neck, even on US made jazz. BUT, the Geddy Lee MIJ Jazz has the perfect neck, thin, straight as an arrow, and capable of the lowest action possible without fret buzz. As I said, I bought this for the neck. I did not like the tone, and was very dissapointed in the sound all together. After weeks of research on the Web, I switched out the stock fender single coil pups for DiMarzio split coil Ultra Jazz pups. And bang, it all came together. Best tone I've ever heard, and if I bought a 2nd bass, it would be another GL Jazz and I would install the same pickups. If you like the neck, but not crazy about the tone, don't worry, I highly recommend this bass!!!

  • Unreal!

    As reviewed by MICHAEL EDELL on 11/10/2013

    I have to say, this is the happiest I've ever been with any instrument purchase I ever made, except, of course, for my 71' Hammond B-3. In a word, this bass is "Killer". I've owned many different makes and models as well, but I was always looking for that MM type sound. I am a purist at heart so I didn't want a Marcus Miller bass. I hate the way they look and I played one (5-str) once when I was sitting in with another band. I hated the way it played and sounded. In it's defense, however, I did not have a chance to noodle with settings or action. Anyway, I have read a lot about '70s Jazz Bass pickup spacing but I did not want to spend $2400 for a '74 Vintage. After all, I just spent $1800 on a 2012 American Deluxe Jazz Bass V. Although I like it a lot, it just does not have the sound I was looking for. So, I traded in my 2001 ADJBV for the Geddy Lee which is basically a '72. Most of what I'm playing today doesn't really require a 5-str anyway. To my disappointment, the first Geddy Lee I received, had a defective bridge pickup. So, I had to order another one which was perfect. Also, I was expecting a MIJ but received a MIM. Not to worry... I just had to tweak the truss rod a bit and adjust the intonation on the G string. I am totally blown away by the sound (anything from Marcus to Jaco) and playability of this bass. The "fit & finish" are excellent as well. It is MORE than worth every penny. I love this bass... so much so, that is is now my "goto"...
