    all for only 80,000 yen ($680.00 USD).

    by the way, it's a curly maple top. it comes in red & blue also.


    Found this also, not an aerodyne but it is purdy....

  2. don't Aerodynes come in P/J pickup configuration only?

    nice basses, though, esp. the bottom one.
     
  3. you are correct as far as I know. the retailer stated they are special runs for their shop. I didn't even notice they had 2 jazz pups. They do have that aerodyne binding around the body though.

    How much does that 70ish black Jazz cost???
     

  6. 78,960 yen (USD $669.92) + about $100ish shipping. Not real bad for something so beautiful. Block inlays, binding, matching headstock, ohhhhh.....
     
  7. well i think ive found a new girlfriend and her name is vintage black jazz bass
     
  8. wow :eek: , thanks for another ridiculous case of GAS :mad:

    hmm .. i dont think they are aerodynes.

    aerodyne's standard retail model , japan domestic edition(with pickguard) go for about 46,400 yen.


    what you have there, i think its a fujigen (fender-japan OEM maker)
    special run.

    the fujigen special run series are made in limited quantities , about 100 each, avaliable from apollonmusic.

    characterised by

    -binding
    -special tops/wood

    plus, the only real way to verify if its an aerodyne is to see the side profile of the body and if it has a slight arch top body. all current models of the aerodyne are also basswood.
