    Have you played one yet?
     
  3. ditto, play one first. i've heard very mixed things about them, some love them some hate them. if you find you dont like it then give the geddy lee sig a try, seems to be a great bass and is close in price

    Or if you dont like the Geddy, try a Godin Freeway if possible :p Godins are awesome basses, and the freeway costs a little less than the aerodyne and geddy.

    that thing looks great! i havn't seen that bass for a while, that is probably my favorit looking fender ;).
     
  6. Try playing it sitting and standing. I noticed that the body can chaff the right forearm. It's shaped like a telecaster so the corner is a bit sharper than a regular jazz bass.
