    Hello! I've recently purchased a rare 5-string Fender Jazz Aerodyne (attached), and while I'm really excited, I also want to change some of the hardware to make it look more like its sleeker Aerodyne cousin.

    I'm having a lot of trouble finding original Fender aerodyne chrome skirted knobs, a black mirror/chrome 5-string J-bass pickguard, and a black mirror/chrome J-bass control plate. Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks a lot for the suggestion. At just $10 and $3 I went and bought both. To be honest, I prefer matte finishes, but there's something about that slick mirrored look with the Aerodyne that really strikes me.

    Contacted Fender's consumer relations office for information on those knobs. They've been the most difficult to find, to be honest. Hope they get back to me with good news.

    Oh wow. That's not far from my hometown at all, too.

    Many thanks, sissy kathy. Very much appreciate all of your help!
