2012 Fender Japan Aerodyne Jazz Bass

Gun Metallic with new hard case



This Aerodyne Jazz Bass was made in 2012 & is a non-export model that was built for the Japanese market only. The only way of getting one is to import it

Resembling the Jazz bass in body shape & size the Aerodyne is much lighter, has a curved top & cream binding & is fitted with Fender Japan pickups

Overall excellent condition with little wear. There was a small dent in the front that has been repaired (see photos) & a few light scratches around the edges. The bass is all original 

Here is a description of this model I found on line:

Fender Aerodyne Jazz Bass (Japan non export model)

This version of the Aerodyne Jazz features a radiused, carved basswood Jazz Bass body with cream binding in a non transparent finish, matching painted headstock, "C" shape Jazz Bass neck with a 20-fret stained rosewood fingerboard with aged pearloid dot inlays, P/J pickups, a 3-ply black/white/black pickguard, and a chrome Jazz style control plate with chrome knobs and output jack. It was introduced in 2006 as a Japanese non export model, available in Black, Dolphin Grey (metallic), Old Candy Apple Red (metallic), Gunmetal (metallic) and Cream (with black bindings).

You can buy an Aerodyne Jazz Bass in the UK but they are only available in Black & they have no pickguard. They cost around £1050. IMO this model looks so much nicer

As stated many times, due to courier damage, all my guitars are shipped in hard cases (usually new) this one being a black one. If you are collecting, I'm happy to knock off the price of the case (About £30) & I may even have an old gig bag you can have to take it away in

So to sum up, a bass that has been little used & is in overall excellent condition. Lightweight & very individual, I really like it & like the last one I had, I think it will be gone very quickly
