  1. I recently finished reading Geddy Lee's book of Big Beautiful Book of Basses. I savored every page and every picture of the vintage basses, especially the vintage Fenders. I noticed there was a bass not mentioned or pictured in the book. It is the Fender Jazz with the sunburst finish that was used on the R-30 tour and played on Between The Wheels. I liked the bass so much, I fashioned one of my own because I never saw one for sale like all of the other Geddy lee signature basses out there for sale. Mine is identical to the one used on the tour and song I mentioned except I used a black pearl pickguard. One of my fetishes is pearl pickguards. I am just curious as to why this bass was not mentioned in the book along with many others that were mentioned with the tour and song they were played on?
