Alongside Neil Peart on drums and Alex Lifeson on guitar, Geddy Lee’s bass work anchored Canadian band Rush’s sound for its entire existence. After escaping from the suburbs of Toronto in the late sixties, through to their retirement over four decades later, Lee’s varied playing styles allowed Rush to change their sound several times over the years. Fender’s signature model Geddy Lee Jazz bass is cloned from Geddy’s famous 1972 pawn shop model, which graduated to being his main instrument during 1980, as the band was recording the Moving Pictures album. With more than 40 million albums sold – 13 of them going platinum, and several even multi-platinum – it’s no surprise that Geddy Lee’s bass is revered around the world.
The basics are a one-piece ‘Modern C’-profile Maple neck, (full 34” scale and 9½” radius), bolted to a solid American Alder body, medium-jumbo frets and black block inlays and black neck binding. Fender extras include authentic seventies-style tuners, TUSQ nut, and famous American Vintage Jazz Bass pickups.
Whomping big bottom end
With master tone control and twin volumes, plus an authentic Badass bridge, your Geddy Lee Jazz Bass pumps out a whomping big bottom end, along with snarling mids and high-string clarity that you won’t believe is coming from a bass.
A natural relic, this is how the expensive Custom Shop models should look! It’s been around the block a time or two, with assorted little dings galore, but the fingerboard and frets look almost brand new. A player’s bass that’s going to fit right into your rack.
