Fender’s Aerodyne Special Precision Bass combines the best of contemporary style, modern performance, and rich vintage tone! From the bound body to the signature aerodynamic lines, this is no ordinary P Bass, and the combination of its sleek design and lightweight basswood body offer an incredibly comfortable feel during even the longest of sets. While this bass might appear futuristic on the outside, under the hood it’s all vintage Fender, boasting an Aerodyne Special Precision Bass Pickup that more than delivers on the fat low end and popping midrange that makes Fender’s first 4-string a perennial favorite of Music Experience's bass players. Add in the maple-on-maple neck’s Modern “C” profile and the full contact Babicz Z-series FCH-4 bridge, and you have an ultra-stable, high-performance instrument that’s ready to take on the stage or studio with classic P Bass punch.
Despite its decidedly modern visuals, the Aerodyne Special Precision Bass delivers authentic vintage-style P Bass thump. This instrument’s Aerodyne Special Precision Bass Pickup is steeped in the tradition of old-school Fender tone, voiced to replicate the best 4-strings from the early days of solidbody electric bass design. Combining fat low end, punchy midrange, and rounded-off trebles, this style of Precision bass pickup is iconic for its ability to sit perfectly in a mix, and it’s simply unmatched in its genre-sweeping versatility.
The Aerodyne Special Precision Bass’ neck is loaded with high-performance appointments that will appease even the most demanding of bassists! Starting off with the classic combo of a maple neck and fingerboard, this guitar’s flat 12-inch radius and medium-jumbo frets are quite a departure from the standard Fender formula, yet they deliver a seriously smooth and effortless feel that facilitates all manner of low end virtuosity. Lastly, the Modern “C” shape offers a quick, fast-playing feel when thumping out your lines, and the body’s Babicz Z-series FCH-4 Bass bridge enhances your tone with increased sonic transference to the body.
Fender’s Aerodyne Special series is a futuristic take on their most famous guitar and bass models, loaded with high-performance features and smooth, sleek Aerodyne aesthetics. Each model in the Aerodyne Special series features a lightweight pickguard-less basswood body that’s carved with aerodynamic lines, then finished off with body binding for a touch of class. The result is an instrument that’s undeniably Fender, but updated for the 21st century. However, as stylish as these guitars look, the Aerodyne special treatment is much more than a visual update — every instrument in this series is loaded with a rock-solid custom Babicz Z-series bridge and custom Aerodyne special pickups for the utmost tone and performance.
