    Hey guys I just got my Fender Aerodyne Jazz bass today !!! It is beautiful, both the finish and the pickguard are shiny !!!
    However, the bridge pickup hums quite badly. But overall, it ROCKS !!

    I take it you got the black one, or did you import another color?

    Glad you like it, I could never get into the radiused top myself, but morepower to you. Just remember, if it's stolen, it wasn't me. :)

    Other than that, I think the bridge pickup is a singlecoil, so you may want to look at swapping that for a humcancelling pickup in the same position.

    Nice! I like the way that bass looks. A good twist on an old standby.

    Does your pick up hum all the time or only when soloed?

    Erm.... when i soloed it. The jazz pickup sound good... the growl.... And the neck is also very thin

    I hope to replace the bridge pickup with DiMarzio Ultra jazz and the neck pickup with Seymour Duncan quarter pounder
