I turn down the treble a bit and lay into it and see if it has the growl. Lucky maybe, or just not sure what the dead spot is It sounds good w/o the Bad Ass II bridge? Regards, Ton HI found this website on the internet saying it should be from 1998-1999: have a "Geddy Lee" bass and the serial # is s/n B009102 , neckplate "limited edition" and "crafted in Japan". Stroker Vance, do you have more information on the year it's been made?I play stacatto notes on "E", "B", and "C" and see how it punches thru. Regards, Ton HI found this website on the internet saying it should be from 1998-1999: I read correctly your neckplate said "limited edition" right ?This can push your tone in a number of directions and is a great asset to have at your fingertips. They are single coil pickups designed by Leo Fender.Though single coil in sound, they are humbucking in operation.
Due to the condition of the bass I'm leaning towards maybe 99- 02 BUT then again I'm not sure so -- maybe someone knows more about the Geddy's. They produce guitars via OEM for famous brands such as Ibanez, Epiphone, Yamaha and Fender (the import Special Interest Group nature model), G&L and others._________________Rez(# 30916) '89 Power Jazz Bass Special-Bad Ass III, EMG P/J Project PBass-EMG PX, Schaller BM Light Tuner'05 Aerodyne JBass'06 Spector Legend Custom Neck Through VT Bass Hartke TA5000 w/XL Cabs(210, 410, 115)Yes the 98 was the first year. It looks like it only had the Badass mounted on I wasn't saying yours is fake, more like a question out loud, Zod got some answers for you it seems...pix of yours. There is a thread on here about how the Geddy has a low volume output._________________Rez(# 30916) '89 Power Jazz Bass Special-Bad Ass III, EMG P/J Project PBass-EMG PX, Schaller BM Light Tuner'05 Aerodyne JBass'06 Spector Legend Custom Neck Through VT Bass Hartke TA5000 w/XL Cabs(210, 410, 115)The "B" as it turns out is listed as 98-99 so I like that. Maybe "dead spot" comes from some odd problem that I haven't experianced.
G&L guitars are the definitive last word on guitars by one of the industry's great legends, Leo Fender.
