An Upgraded Geddy Lee Jazz Bass!

Fender's US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass takes three of Geddy's favorite instruments and fuses them into one hot-rodded model. Custom-voiced American Vintage '70s Geddy Lee pickups deliver fat low end and classic J Bass growl. The large profile maple neck has a hand-rubbed oil finish on the back, a 9.5" fretboard radius, and flashy white pearloid block inlays. A Geddy Lee High Mass bridge offers rock-solid tuning stability and intonation. The Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass gives you best of Geddy's personal basses in a single bass that's ready rock.

Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass Electric Bass Guitar at a Glance:
  • Geddy's favorite basses in a single instrument
  • A sonic replica of Rush's classic bass sound
  • A neck finish that feels broken in
Geddy's favorite basses in a single instrument

The Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is a combination of Geddy's favorite aspects of two of his Custom Shop signature models and his original '72 Jazz Bass. From the alder body to the maple neck with a Custom Thick "C" profile to the custom-voiced pickups, you'll love the feel, vibe, and sound of this bass. At Sweetwater we're big fans of the Jazz Bass, and Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is sure to please even the pickiest of players.

A sonic replica of Rush's classic bass sound

One of the most important changes on the US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass is the addition of Fender custom-voiced American Vintage '70s Geddy Lee pickups. These pickups have been designed to sound just like Geddy's original 1972 Jazz Bass. Fender wound these pickups to give you the punch, mid-range, bass and output you know and love. Perfect for all styles of music, these pickups give you a fat low end, tons of thump, and that iconic Jazz Bass growl.

A neck finish that feels broken in

Players are very particular about many aspects of their instruments, but none more so than the neck. Fender has incorporated a great-feeling hand-rubbed oil finish on the US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass. This finish feels smooth and broken in on the Custom Thick "C" neck profile. The headstock and maple fretboard have a great-looking and durable gloss urethane finish. Once you play the US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass neck finish, you won't be able to go back to anything else.

Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass Electric Bass Guitar Features:
  • Signature bass modeled after Geddy Lee's three favorite instruments
  • Maple neck sports Custom Thick "C" profile and a 9.5" fretboard radius for smooth playing
  • Two custom-voiced American Vintage '70s Geddy Lee pickups deliver classic growl and smooth low end
  • White pearloid block inlays and white binding add a touch of class
  • Geddy Lee High Mass bridge offers killer sustain
  • Includes hardshell case

The Fender US Geddy Lee Jazz Bass gives you the signature tones of a bass legend!

Great Bass

First off, I'm a guitar player and I have limited experience with playing different makes and models of bass guitars. However, 40 plus years of gigging and recording with quality guitars has taught me what to look for in an instrument. The Geddy Lee American Jazz Bass is top notch all around. Rock solid tuning stability, a fast neck with impecable fret work, a flawless finish, wonderfully voiced pickups, smooth and quiet electronics, and a gig worthy case have me feeling like I got quite a deal for its price. It stands out in a mix and has a wide variety of tones. Great bass.

League of its own!!

This is my first jazz bass. I own an American standard pbass and this bass blows it out of the water! I have only owned it for a couple days but I haven't been able to put it down! Its very light, the neck is very fast and sleek and the tonal options are crazy. This is by far the best bass I've ever played. And the customer service I received was amazing. I have researched jazz basses for the last two months trying to decide which one I should purchase Alan Carter, you were great with answering all of my questions and returning every call and email in rapid timing. The customer service here at Sweetwater is in a league of Its own! If you are thinking of purchasing from Sweetwater I highly suggest you do so and be sure to ask for Alan Carter senior sales engineer! Thank you Alan, I will definitely be using Sweetwater for all my future purchases!

Geddy Lee USA Fantastic!

Been thinking about a USA Fender Jazz for the studio for a while and couldn't decide on a model. Then, this bass was announced at the NAMM show and it was a no-brainer since I'm such a huge Rush fan. This bass did not disappoint. Great craftsmanship, this is one fine instrument. Great sound, great feel. Slapped a set of Rotosounds on it and it was good to go.

MIA Geddy Lee Jazz

Just a fantastic bass all around. The craftsmanship, quality, playability and tone can't be beat. Another winner from Fender

Bad A** Bass

Well I'm not bass player. But, I am a life long RUSH fan. I play guitar, or at least try. I collect/play American guitars. Which is why I didn't have the Geddy Bass before this; they were Japanese or Mexican. First off, the neck is crazy easy to play, smooth and non sticky. The cream inlays are a much better look than the black on the original '72. Second, I think it's easy to play based on my experience w a 6 string and playing finger style. Third, the price and what you get for the $ is a great deal. And the case is how they all should be made. I figure Geddy was behind all of this, because you get a lot for the $. Ever been to a Rush show, you always get your $ worth. Sound= Sounds like a bass. I don't play well enough for it to matter at this point. All in all, I say its a great bass. Based mostly on looks and feel. American made & priced right. Sweeeeet!Lastly, Geddy may be the coolest guy on Earth!
Music background: I try to play guitar, keyboard and now bass.
