All around the best

So while searching for what I could call my end-all go-to bass, I came across this beauty. I'm glad I did. Everything about this bass is amazing, from the sound to the finish. Having both the j bass and the p bass pickups is something I really value as I played a jaguar bass and really wanted the tonal options not given with a regular p bass or even a j bass. This bass does it both. The tone is amazing, deep and full and the sustain is out of this world. Even though this bass is "ergonomic" as in it is very thin and light, it has no effect on the tone whatesoever, simply makes gigging for extended periods of time easier. The controls are simple and to the point which I enjoy, and then there's the looks. The thing is beautiful, from the lack of inlays to the matching headstock to the smoked chromehardware, this thing draws attention which is new thing to most bass players haha. All around best bass for the price, Japanese flawless construction as always at cheaper than American price, and you can't beat that.

Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass

I give this Bass a 5 WOW.1. It sounds great.2. Its easy to play this bass.3. Its easy to dial in your tone.4. It is beautiful, looks great on stage!5. The Price is half of your top end bass.Went through a lot of basses trying to find one that I love as much as my 2004 Warwick Corvette, and this is my go to bad boy. Wish I would have found this from the start, it would have saved me lots of money, so if your looking for a bass, try this Aerodyne, you will keep this one, and did I mention the price, also easy to setup yourself. Im tempted to buy a backup, its that good peeps. Sweetwater does a great job with the shipping and handling and personal customer service unlike the other online music vendors.

This is my new favorite bass!!!

I love this bass. It looks really cool, the neck is fast, slim and very easy to get around on. The pickup configuration is one I have never used before but I was very impressed and it sounds great. The build quality of the Fender basses made in Japan is outstanding. I would highly recommend this bass to anyone who is looking for a a J-bass neck with a heavier more muscular tone. I had Mike Lull Plek it and do his magic setup on it and it is just incredible how awesome this bass is. I also have to mention what a pleasure it is to do business with Sweetwater and my personal sales engineer Mark Thompson. Mark is first class and always takes care of me 100%.
Music background: I have been playing the bass for over 40 years. I started when I was 13. I play for fun and my current gig is with "Hardwired". I play everything from rock to jazz to country to polkas. I love all kinds of music and being a good, solid bass player is one

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.

Topp two in one

P-bass and J-bass in the one and only. Nice smooth Japan prod. The sound is great and I love these feeling and punsj ....
Music background: Bass player in several bands, at this time I´m playing blues
