my true love


Yes, today is a proud and happy day. I was able to finally pick up my dream bass, the Geddy Lee Signature Edition Fender Jazz Bass. I can't tell you how good it feels to play this instrument... not only is the finish work *fantastic*, but the tone and playability are absolutely brilliant. All these years I have tried to dial in a "geddy tone" on my other basses, but to no avail. The secret is simple, it turns out... Rotosound stainless steel roundwound strings on this beautiful fender '72 reissue... WOW! The neck is so slim and playable. The upper register is so expressive, so tonally satisfying. I could go on all day about the many virtues of this bass, but I think you are all bored now... and I'd rather play it than talk about it. :-)
