What's special about this product?
Features: What it does for you:
Basswood body Big, warm midrange tones
C-shaped neck profile Comfortable, rounded oval shape
Maple neck Bright tone, full sustain and strength
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
The Aerodyne Jazz Bass offers timeless Fender tone, smooth playability, and alluring black-on-black style. A fresh take on a classic design, this J Bass packs plenty of sonic versatility by way of its dual pickup configuration. Built with a bound basswood body with a unique carved top, this bass unites classic Fender design with a striking set of updated features.

Versatile Fender Tone

The Aerodyne features two distinct Fender pickups to cover a wide range of classic bass tones. In the forward position, a split-coil Precision pickup offers the thunderous low-end that's made the P Bass a hard-rock standard for decades. In the bridge position, a single-coil Jazz pickup delivers all the hallmarks of the J Bass sound, with punchy mids and well-defined highs. Use the dual volume and tone knobs to dial in sounds to cover any genre with engrossing bass sound.

Ultra-smooth Playability

This J Bass uses thin C shaped profile which invites speedy play all up and down the fretboard. The combination of maple for the neck with a rosewood fingerboard provides the classic feel of an original Fender. The body features a comfortable back contour which centers the bass on the player's torso.

Features:

- Basswood body with unique radius and carved top
- Elegant black finish with cream binding on top of body
- Smoked chrome bridge, tuning machines, and skirted control knobs
- Top-mounted Strat input jack
- Dual pickup configuration with split single-coil Precision pickup and single-coil Jazz pickup

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (72 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very Nice Bass for the Price"
Sound: The sound is great... Lots of tone shaping with the P anf J pickup combination. My only complaint is that the J pickup tends to be noisy. Othere than that the sound is terrific. The bass came with Fender Super 7250 strings 45 thru 100. I usually use Roto Sound 40 - 95 but these sound and feel so good I am going to start using them on my other Fenders. Feature: The overall feel of the bass is nice, especially with the arched top. I have another Jazz bass but the P pickup really adds more charaater to the bottom end. It sounds great through my Trace Elliot. The bass came with Fender Ease of Use: The neck is perfect. Nice and smooth and slender. The 7.5 inch radius makes chording easier wuth less fatigue and the smooth finish on the back is nice Quality: The quality and craftmanship on this bass are equal to that of basses that cost 2 to three time more. I know because I own a few. The only thing I don't like is the typical stock fender bridge that hasn't changed in decades. I'm already changing this out with a Leo Quan Badass II. Value: The quality and craftmanship on this bass are equal to that of basses that cost 2 to three time more. Lot's of value here and well worth the price at $799. Manufacturer Support: In all my years owning Fender products, I have never had to deal with them because I've never had a problem. In that respect I guess I would rate them 5 stars for never having to go through the trouble of dealing with the manufacterer compared to for example... the cell phone company who I talk to 4 to 5 times a month. The Wow Factor: The smooth Black on Black finish looks beutiful, I'm almost afraid to play it. Nice sleek design with the traditional Fender shape. Nice job on this bass. I would buy another in a different color just to have it. Overall: I'm very happy with my new Bass and with the order experience from ZZounds. The bas showed up in 2 days with free shipping. I would have been happy with a week. There were no problems with the bass and the order process was very easy. I will order again.
Style of Music: My core music interest is Rock but I also like contemporary country music.

"The Aerodyne Jazz Bass has more curves then your girlfrind."
Sound: This bass takes the best of the p and jazz basses and puts them together to create one AWESOME bass! It is about half the thickness of a normal jazz bass and it weighs about half too. People will tell you it is the most beautiful bass they have ever seen and I agree! It looks like a standard jazz except in a tuxedo. Great for ANY style. I highly recommend it. Feature: The stock pickups and everything have been great. Everything has stayed in place and hasnt loosened up. The tuning is rock solid. Quality: Nothing has broken on it yet and i has held up amazing. I am extra careful with mine because the smooth black finish makes even the smallest scratches show up. It's a fingerprint magnent too so keep a cloth handy. Value: This things a beauty! Definitely worth it if you are in the market for a great bass with a p/j pup configuration. The price does seem a tad steep though. Manufacturer Support: I have never dealt with Fender customer service so I wouldnt know. The Wow Factor: This baby is sweet! It has a carved top unlike other fender basses. When it comes in the mail you will want to make sweet love to it. Overall: I've played Mexican jazz and p basses and the Aerodyne is so much better! I don't have a lot of experience with the American fender so I can't say much about that. If someone stole it I would buy it back only if I couldn't hunt the person down who stole it and punch them in the face.
