I bought my first Fender about 4 years ago and it was an Aerodyne. All Black and a cream colored body binding. Sweet. Sounds better then it looks. I went out looking for a certain Fender vibe and out of all the basses, this one had it. I considered selling it but after shelling out $1400 for a new L2k and then another $400 for a better feeling neck, I decided that this bass has the tone that I like best. P/J set up. I get a great P tone. Fat and Beefy. Real nice and then I set the growl up with the J pup at the bridge. Really nice tone. I see that Fender Japan makes the Aerodyne in other colors and also with a J/J set ups. I'm thinking of picking up one of the JJ ones. Dolphin Gray?
