Rush Squier Clockwork Angels BassJust in time for the Holiday, the Rush Backstage Club now is now selling a Fender Squier Clockwork Angels Bass for $599.99 USD. From the description:

Get your very own RUSH branded Squier Clockwork Angels Bass. Featuring the Clockwork Angels "Wings" logo on the pick guard and a the "Rush" logo branded into the head of the guitar, this limited edition release is the ultimate addition to your RUSH (or guitar) collection.

Customized Squier Vintage Modified Jazz Bass '77: From the age of Funk and dawn of Punk comes this retro-inspired Vintage Modified Jazz Bass! Features include a gloss Black-finished Agathis body and one-piece maple neck with attractive white binding and white pearl block inlays on the 20-fret maple fingerboard. That soulful sound emanates from a pair of single-coil Duncan Designed? Jazz Bass pickups; other features include chrome hardware and machine heads, black plastic Stratocaster knobs, a three-ply Black/White/Black pickguard, and a four-saddle chrome bridge.

For all the details and purchase information visit the Rush Backstage Club.

As a bassist, let me say, this is purely a collector's item and nothing more. If we keep that in mind, we can appreciate it for what it is. By the way, I own and play the Geddy Lee Fender Jazz. I bought that particular bass, not to sound like Geddy (which is impossible, because Geddy is Geddy), but because of the neck, the bridge, and 70's configuration of the bass. It's an incredible instrument and a fine investment. This new bass... nothing of the sort whatsoever. Again, it's a collectors item for Rush fanatics who have nothing else to do with $600!

I'm buying 2. One I'm going to smash and the other I'm going to have signed by Bill "the B Man" Banasiewicz, Donna Halper, Kevin Shirley, Praetorian, Rupert Hine, and Howard Ungerleider.

As in dont think it's going to sound anything like a Jazzmaster, but I need not warn any bass players of this.

Hopefully sounds better than the 6 string versions of Fenders Squire series
The sound will instantly tell you "you got what you payed for"...

That was supposed to say that the Ricky is a better deal at $1,900 used...

And they probably won't accept returns when the buyer says 'I can't get this to sound like Geddy'.

That's $250 for the bass & $349 for the Rush logo.

Here's the same bass, minus the 2 stickers that appear to cost $150 a piece. Shipping is also cheaper (like, free)

I'm all for supporting our favorite band but consider spending your money on other cool Rush things.
