OVERVIEW

A modern take on a timeless classic!

The new Aerodyne Classic Precision Bass Special bridges the gap between Fender's ultra-progressive Aerodyne body profile and the vintage design of the highly revered, hard-working, and hard-hitting bass that started it all.

The figured maple top with cream binding and choice of eye-catching transparent finishes take the Aerodyne concept to a new style level, while its uniquely radiused body design enhances comfort and maintains the traditional Precision vibe.

FEATURES
  • Basswood body topped with figured maple
  • C-shaped maple neck with 7.25"-radius
  • 20-fret rosewood fingerboard
  • Body matching headstock
  • 3-ply mint-green pickguard
  • Chrome bridge and tuning machine
  • Split single-coil Precision Bass Pickup in the middle position
  • Single-coil Jazz Bass pickup at the bridge
  • Polyurethane finish

Wow,I am so glad I got one of these while I could. I am not a Fender fan. I always felt this style was too heavy and bulky. But I do love this bass. This is a great bass for the price and then some. It's well made, sounds and plays great too. The fit and finish and overall quality is excellent. I love the balance and especially the slimmer, contoured body. Having both a jazz and precision pickup gives it flexibility and makes it very versatile; Rock, Soul, Blues, Funk and Jazz all work fine with this bass. Also sound integrity holds up well playing loud, soft and in between. I usually only bring this one bass to a gig now. I have had it over a year and it works great and stays in tune nicely. Everybody else that has played it really likes it as well. Great bass for the bucks and better than most at this price.

The body and neck on this bass are the only good things about it. Cheapo bridge, tuning pegs, electronics. Also they advertise a mint green pick guard and mine arrived with a white one and had holes for the p bass pickup cover! The finish is better on this bass than on my American Jazz. Nice and light. There is routing that was done under the bridge, so a change to a badassII has to be done by a pro...bummer. If this would have cost less I would have rated the value much higher. Overall a nice bass to play, sounds good through my west fillmore and my 2 eden 410 cabs

You'll Love It

By Timmeh!

from Monroe, LA

The Aerodyne will blow you away. Once you play it you won't be able to shake the thought of it. It is perfect for those who love that punk feel, it can go from a fat, deep tone to a Mike Dirntish kind of feel. If you can afford it, the only thing better in it's range is a Spector.

playa

By Rotnay 6000

from Lincoln, NE

I own the natural flavored Aerodyne P bass - she is gorgeous! Pictures do not do these basses justice. With the split-p and the jazz bridge pickups I have the ability to go from fat bottom to smooth jazz tones. Very comfortable with the narrowed body, c-shaped neck, and it's much lighter than an American Deluxe P Bass. This one is a keeper! I get comments not only on my sound, but the looks of my Aerodyne after every show. Do yourself a favor and get one of these - every good bass player deserves one! it is - precious to me %)

Be carefull with the jack socket

By bassic-vNpv3

from UK

I was looking for another bass when I came across a red Aerodyne. I am very pleased with how it compares with my other "Real" American basses. The main issue I have is the location of the jack socket means that if I catch the plug with my leg the sound has gone. Easily cured with a right angle jack plug but some of these don't fit as the socket is recessed. Sort this out and the guitar is brilliant.

Awsome look, sound and feel

By RedSG

from New jeresy

This bass is insane! Love it the sound is amazing and don't get me started on the finish! I'm a very busy musican and it's great how light it is. I love how I can switch from a jazz tone for my schools band then go to heavy tone for my hardcore stuff without switchn basses. Great buy just the knobs were lose when I got it but easy to fix. If your a bassist with style out side of your music you should buy the aerodyne !

Best of P and J bass in one

By Ivan Shepperd

from Dallas, TX

See all my reviews

This is a very sleek and beautiful bass. I?ve had the Blue model for about 6 months and just love it. The workmanship is absolutely perfect. I have not found a single flaw in any part. Really holds its tune too. One thing that?s not mentioned in the write-up is that it has a Jazz neck rather than the wider P neck. So you get a Precision body with a Jazz neck which I think is the best of both worlds. I liked the original round-wound strings but I replaced them with a set of chrome flat-wounds and I think it sounds even better.

By Alex

from Ottawa

Pros

  • awesome maple coloring
  • comfortable neck
  • light
  • useful in all types of music

Cons

    Best Uses

    • heavy metal
    • jazz
    • rock

    I got this bass about 6 years ago for my birthday and it has to be the best guitar I've ever played. The sound is amazing and you can't ever go wrong with the type of music you can play on this bass guitar. It's a very beautiful guitar, mine is somewhat of a tiger stripe top. If you ever come across one, I definitely recommend you buy it!

        I'm in LOVE!

        By C.O.D. Blues Man

        from Park Hills, MO

        See all my reviews

        Just recieved this beauty. It came out of the shipping box tuned, and ready to play. unbelievable. The action and harmonics are impeccable. The tonal possibilities are endless. The neck is thin, smooth, and fast, The flame maple top, the cream binding and all of the other appointments make this an eye catcher. The only complaint is that the single coil pickup is a tad noisy. Easily fixed with a good noise gate. If this bass came without pickups, it would still be a bargain. I am the envy of my band. it is light, and sexy with plenty of "chunky" tone. Kudos Fender Japan! Buy this bass now! You will be happy.
