Fender Japan Aerodyne Jazz Bass Black 2003
Fender Aerodyne Jazz, crafted in Japan 2003-4, gloss black. These tend to turn heads and not hang around too long, and looking at it... no wonder, right? The AJB model is somewhat of a cult favourite; the slim neck, P/J pickup setup and lightweight body make for a super slick playing experience, and the black chrome hardware, gloss black matching headstock and cream binding... phwoar, what a saucy item. This delivers a more modern, punchy and scooped take on the classic Fender bass tone; it's super responsive in the hands and perfect for funk, punk or metal stuff where the bass tone needs to hit hard. This version with no inlays and no guard comes around less often than the regular model, so if you like it, put a ring on it?
