Well, it depends what era Geddy you want. :P Seriously.
He's used alot of different basses over the years. Around Permanent Waves and Moving Pictures--maybe through Signals--he used Rickenbacker basses.
Then for Grace Under Pressure he switched to Steinberger, which contributed to the album's "Dark" sound (Side note: Whenever they did "Digital Man" [Off of Signals] live, he also used a Steinberger)
I believe after that--Power Windows through Roll the Bones or maybe Counterparts--he used Wal basses (I've heard that for the "Rap" part on Roll the Bones, he used a Wal 5-string; I think it's just a synthesiser though)
Then for Test For Echo he bought an old Fender Jazz bass for about $200; he fixed it up and played with it on T4E and his recent solo release, My Favorite Headache. Of the bass, he says, "I simply can't get it to not sound awesome". Not bad for $200, eh?
Of course if you want Pre-PeW sound, I can't really help you there.... :) Sorry.
