A new Fender limited edition USA Geddy Lee Jazz Bass with a maple neck and a transparent crimson red finish was recently made available. A limited run of 100 of these basses have been made available and they are currently selling for a retail price of $1999.99 from a number of online dealers including and Cream City Music. From the product description:

Geddy Lee's iconic bass playing helped propel Rush to the forefront of prog-rock stardom, and now you can get a bass that's built to combine the best of his three favorite basses with this Limited Edition USA Jazz Bass. Its maple neck features a bolder profile than standard Jazz Basses, giving it a thick, comfortable feel in-hand that provides plenty of stability without compromising a bit of comfort. A pair of Fender Vintage-Style single coil '70s pickups are specifically voiced to sound like Geddy's original 1972 model, dealing out booming, yet well-defined tone. Aesthetically, the bass is a classic treat, with traditional black block inlays, black fingerboard binding, a 4-ply black pearloid pickguard, and a transparent Crimson Red finish that shows off a gorgeously figured flame maple top. Part of a limited run of only 100 basses, this perfectly designed homage to one of history's greats won't last long, so get yours while you can!

Thanks to Nick M and J. Gold for the heads up.
