Fender Custom Shop USA Limited Geddy Lee 1972 Relic Jazz Bass
 
This is the Fender Custom Shop USA Limited Geddy Lee 1972 Relic Jazz Bass. There were only 50 of these basses made world wide. This is one of the last ones available. Now is your chance to grab a piece of Rush history. If you are looking at this listing that means you are a Rush fan and you know this is a must have. Geddy Lee is part of The Holy Trinity of Rock. He is probably one of the most influential bass players of all time. So it is only fitting that he has a signature model. But this is no ordinary Signature Model guitar. Fender’s Custom Shop has taken all of the aspects of Geddy Lee’s famous 1972 Jazz bass and created a Limited Edition Geddy Lee Jazz replica. Every detail was considered, from the neck shape, wiring, pickups – even the wear and tear. This is an exact replica of what Geddy Lee plays down to the every nick and scratch. 
 
As the story goes Lee purchased the original bass from a pawnshop in Kalamazoo, Michigan for $200 in 1977 on the "Farewell To Kings" tour. They played Kalamazoo on December 19th 1977 so it that is probably the day he picked it up. We Rush geeks like all the details. That instrument went on to take a pretty significant place in rock and roll history, as Lee used it on Rush’s 1981 mega-hit, Moving Pictures. He recorded including “Vital Signs”, “Witch Hunt”, “Limelight” and “Tom Sawyer” using that bass, and the instrument also made an appearance on the music videos for “Limelight” and Vital Signs”.
 
Lee didn't play the bass much in the ’80s after Moving Pictures, as he used Steinberger and Wall basses but he couldn't stay away from that unmistakable sound and growl. He returned to it in 1993 with the album Counterparts. Counterparts engineer Kevin “the Caveman” Shirley insisted that Lee return to the Jazz bass and the band return to its power trio roots. Lee has been using the bass on all albums and tours since Counterparts. 
 
Lee’s bass is now on its third neck, which was created by Fender’s Custom Shop and features white binding. Pearl inlays have replaced the original black ones, and the neck is fitted with the original tuners, bushings and string tree. Lee requested the back of the neck have the nitro finish rubbed off so his fingers don't stick to the neck. All of his touring basses are now set up this way as well. Treat yourself to this bass today and grab it before someone else does.
