I Love This Bass

I have had tendinitis issues, because my day job is working on computers. Desperately wanted to get back into playing bass, and a friend recommended this bass. Bought one a month ago, and wow, it's the difference between being able to play bass and not being able to play, and my other bass is also a J-bass. This thing is pretty much the closest thing to an ergonomic bass I've ever seen. No finger pain whatsoever, and I've been playing the hell out of it.And did I mention that it sounds great, especially if you replace the strings with some good flatwounds.

Really good

This is a really great bass. It feels nice, slick and light. It has the most tonal versitility in a bass I've ever seen. It can be dark and heavy or or bright and light. It looks amazing, plays amazing, sounds amazing. It's really just amazing! (best with flats).

Looks amazing, light weight, and lots of tonal capability. I put on a set of fender Flats..bliss... AMAZING value for the money. Bought mine sight unseen based on reviews. Not disappointed at all. You got to have this one in your collection. Get yours before Fender CIJ closes the doors!

Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass, Black

Beautiful to look at, very light weight, and sounds great. Took it to a music store to have the action adjusted and the staffer at the store offered to buy it from me right then and there.

Fender Aeordyne Jazz Bass

Beautiful to look at; light weight, fast neck and easy to play. What more can one want. This is a real beauty. After I received it I took it to a local shop to have it intonated and the action lowered. As soon as the technician saw it he asked me if I wanted to sell it. He loved it. I hadn't even played it yet. Obviously, I didn't sell and now it's putting out great tone and sound. By the way, about the beautiful black shiny finish and fingerprints. Sweetwater sells a product for that. Just put it on a good soft rag and rub the body down. It keeps fingerprints from getting on it. Tyler Moore also a great sales person and musician. Very helpful and knowledgeable.
