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

Sleek Looks -- Classic Design

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

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.

Overall: I got this bass about a year ago here at zzounds.com for about 700 bucks, I have been playing guitar for decades but I got the bass bug, I got this bass just for the looks, nothing else looks like this bass, and of course because it is a Fender. The Aerodyne is made in Japan, and the craftsmanship is really top shelf, it is flawless, it is a beautiful instrument the pictures don't really show how good looking it is, and it's made like a tank. The only thing I didn't like was the bridge pick up, it was useless. I changed the bridge to a Schaller Bass Bridge 2000 finished in ruthenium to match the black chrome(no re-drilling needed), and replaced both pick ups with a set from DiMarzio (DP126), the bridge change didn't really make a lot of difference, maybe just a bit more sustain but I can adjust the string spacing now; I also changed the strings to DR Black Beauties even though I did not need to since the Fender strings are actually pretty good, but the DiMarzio pick ups took this bass to another class of instrument; I shielded the potentiometers cavity with conductive shielding paint and now it has no noise at all, you can't tell the bass is on unless you pluck it, and when you do it growls through my TC BG250-115, now I love this bad a.. bass; so in a few words it is worth it, even with the bridge pick up being as noisy as it was, that is a cheap easy fix which I did in my garage. The neck is maple and if the light hits it right it looks like it is flamed, it is just awesome looking without the fret markers; and the sound is right on the spot, you can get lots of different tones from this beast, buy it before it goes up in price, which it will for sure, it already has. By the way zzounds.com is the best place to get gear because of their payment plans, I couldn't have this bass if it wasn't for the easy installments, so get it if you are looking to get something that will last and will retain its value, hey, it's a Fender after all; my grand son will surely inherit this beauty, it is really that good overall.
Style of Music: metal, blues, rock, etc
