    Found a used modded Fender Aerodyne at my usual haunt yesterday. Made that happen as I wanted a meater feeling bass for the music room Im working on. Also if I ever gig, Im all set.

    Modded with a babicz bridge and an aguilar P pickup. Near as I can tell, the pickup is the 4P-60 model.

    I actually have a black babicz bridge, so the chrome one is going to my brother for christmas. He gigs as a bassist, so it works out.

    This thing feels and sounds great :yesway:.

    Nice catch. Those Aerodyne are seriously fun basses.

    I have a couple friends with them, and the last bassist we had picked one up as well. I forgot they have a blank board :lol:. Part of the club!

    This one is surprisingly light too.

    Man, with that blank board you should totally murder the thing out. Put that black bridge on there, then get black tuning pegs. Maybe even dye the FB.

    It's easier to just plasti-dip your eyes.

    Noted!

    I think the hardware is black chrome but I will double check.
