  1. thinking of ordering an Aerodyne from Japan next month but I can't decide what kind! I'm interested in the pickguard-less model (similar to the export ones but without that horrible looking Strat output jack) and the one with a pickguard. I think that hardware/electronics are the same on each. Vote for which you prefer!






  2. #1. To me, that's what sets it apart from the rest.
  3. tough choice....I'd have to say #2 tho.

    #1... for the record, i really like that strat-style jack... really sets it apart from the rest!
  7. gimme the cash for one and I will!
  8. To me, #1 looks unfinished, especially in that black. The pickguard on #2 makes it look a lot classier. :bassist:

    I like the pickguard, very classic Jazz looking even with the P bass pickup. And if you want in the future you can have another one made for a Jazz bass pickup (not that you couldn't with the other one mind you). I like the no inlays on the first one tho, maybe buy it and a pickguard?

    #2 is what we, and by we I mean me, in the business call "Pimp-Status".

    I had #1 and thought it looked really cool, and different than any other Jazz bass. But, in the long run, I traded it off for a Geddy model, much better player.

    #2 for me. Never cared for all black basses, and I like it better with a pickguard.

    I've been GASing for #2 for quite a while.
  15. Why don't you get the Frank Bello sig? Isn't it basically an aerodyne with better pickups and hardware?

    Well I voted #1, but I don't know now, #2 is very nice. It's a hard choice but despite my vote I'd go for number two.

    (Why was I so quick to vote....)

    Pickguard. I, for one, will always vote for pickguard over no pickguard.

    Maybe its just me (and my bad eyesight), but the Aerodyne with a pickguard looks like the top is flat (at least in these pics). The top one has an arched top. I voted for #1
  19. I voted for #2 because I already have one. The Regular Aerodyne is classy, but I like the pickguard and the metal plate under the knobs. It is still classy and not as dark.

    The version with the pickguard does have the arched top also.
  20. #2...a real jazz bass always has a pickguard.
