Just traded for this 1994 MIJ Aerodyne PJ. It's the first Aerodyne I've ever seen and I really like it! A tasteful previous owner changed out the pickup covers for cream to match the binding, nice touch. Pickups are stock and I have no issue with them. Pots area silky smooth and the tone cap works well. This bass plays super smooth and just sounds RIGHT, much better sounding than any of the 84-87 Jazz Bass Specials or blackface E serial P Bass and PJ Basses I've had. On all those other basses I felt the need to rip out the pickups right away. Not this one though. I had no idea Aerodynes were this nice and I'm really glad the trade offer came my way!
