Used Aerodyne J Bass from L&M. Someone must have dug this thing! It has an aguilar P pickup (guessing the 4P-60) and a Babicz bridge. It's also pretty light - lighter than the vintage modified Squier I got earlier this year.

@keto gifted me a black Babicz bridge, which will be going on this bass. I'm passing on the gift and sending the chrome one to my brother in Ottawa for his new CV Jazz.

Hope that pic works!

Congrats!

I didn't know that you played bass.

Multitalented !

ENJOY!
I was actually a hired gun for a summer! Only time I've made real money playing aside from lessons hahaha. I want to be able to track decent demos and ideas at home, and bass gigs are more plentiful should I take it seriously.

I'm also just trying to get motivated to pick something up.

How much more black could this be, Alex? :)

Nice score, and good job passing on the gift!
It's a bridge away from getting lost at night. Luckily I have that bridge.

Gotta make sure I dont lose it!

Nice. I have a slightly modded Aerodyne, it’s a joy to play. One of my favourite necks, and the stock pups are fine. I had that bridge on mine briefly, but stole it back for another bass.

I've been wanting one of those for a while, but they rarely pop up around me.
And when they do, I don't have the scratch. lol

Nothing, absolutely nothing, would have been better as a backdrop than your unmade bed. So rock and roll.

Cool bass, by the way. I had an Aerodyne Tele for years, a gift from my wife, that was stellar. I imagine your bass is as god.

I was gonna look for a daphne blue MiM standard, but this made sense as a "Im probably not getting another" buy. I've only seen a couple pop up as well.

Aerodyne strats are also sweet - i think our jamspace sharers have one. The bed is actually the "band guest bed" haha.

Trying to decide if i swap the bridge today. I do have a set of 50-105s that were meant for the VM.

Yeah, they are such a pretty bass, everyone always ooohs and aaahs, and it sounds and plays great stock, with a really nice neck profile. I put different knobs on mine but went back to stock, they just work.

Looks killer. How does it play?
The slightly thicker gauge probably made an impact, but it is very loud unplugged. I like the feel of them as well. Im glad I didnt bother to install the bridge myself as I would have gotten very frustrated.

Taking it to my friends along with the JM to record some song ideas for kicks tomorrow. Looking forward to playing both of them!

Used it today to track some bass on a friend's tunes. Sounds good!
