    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?:)
  2. I picked up an Aerodyne for about a minute last week and loved it - I gotta go back and play it some more.

    I really wish they made a fiver though...
    I want a P style fiver!!!!
  3. the JJ ones are 32" scale
  4. I want to get the big block P-bass, that looks awesome, but right now, I don't have cash.

    There is a medium Aerodyne that I suppose is a 32" scale but there is another JJ style that has a figured top that I do not believe is 32" scale.

    In fact the scale given for it is 432. I think its metric. Tell me if I am wrong. Before I order one and can't return it.
  6. I had no idea about a figured top version, the only JJ Aerodyne I've seen is the medium scale. Link to the other one?
  7. that looks nice.
