    Reggie looks as though it has more tonal control.

    I like FRank's black ,but according to the functions, the Reggie one seems beyond, thank you all.

    The Frankie bass is a not much more than an Aero Dyne bass (isn't that what they called it?).
    But the Reggie bass, which I played before, is really thought out in terms of electronics and woods. A great bass IMO.

    As with just about any "which is better" question, it depends on what you want. I'd say the Reggie is more versatile with its active/passive electronics, and if you prefer a Jazz neck that's the way to go. But if you prefer a P-bass neck and/or all-out hard rockin' mojo is your game, the Frank Bello would probably be the better choice.

    I'd love a P/J bass with Quarter Pounder P pickup, so I'm very interested in the Frank Bello. I'd prefer a P-bass body and maybe a Jazz neck, but it's still cool. By the way, it's different from the Aerodyne in many ways: pickups; lack of tone control; string through/top load bridge; P-bass neck; flatter fretboard radius (like the Am. Ser. P-bass); and alder body instead of basswood. I also think it's slab bodied instead of curved like the Aerodyne, but I'm not sure.
  9. Reggie Hamilton for sho... I love it in black :D
