I had been playing with a Sterling Ray34 and 35 as well as an EBMM. Excellent basses, but the weight was becoming an issue. When I heard about the Aerodyne weighing in at less than 8 lbs, I had to try it. Especially considering the PJ configuration, which I love. The neck is very playable and quite fast, the looks are stunning and overall, it is VERY comfortable to play. I found the pickups lacking a bit of punch, so I swapped mine out for EMG GZRs (Geezer Butler) and combined with black tapewound strings, this is a beast! My only other quip is the lack of the tapered/curved arm rest on the body, but it is still probably the most comfortable bass that I've ever played. I play mostly with the P volume at almost full and the J at 75% and there is an excellent mix of thunder and growl!

Years ago, our bass player had an expensive Music Man active bass, which we got for him based on the specs, but we also got him a P-bass as a backup. I always preferred the P-bass sound. Many years later, I just could not get the sound I was looking for from my fretless J bass, and ordered this bass from L+M. I was not sure I would be happy with it, but it gives me the inspiring sound of a P bass, and more! Turning both pickups on gives a brighter sound, but I am really liking that classic P bass sound. This is a killer deal for a bass made in Japan, with fantastic quality, as expected. Highly recommended!

It looks unlike any other Fender Jazz bass and has incredible sustain. What you can?t see in the picture is the cream coloured binding (trim) that goes all the way around the body. What you also can?t see is that the bass is not tapered to accomodate your forearm on your plucking arm. Its basically square edged all the way around which i found to be unconfortable to play. The binding actually left an identation on my forearm if i practiced for a long time. Also, i found the bass to be heavy as compared to my Sadowsky bass. Overall, it played very well, had great sustain and was constructed with quality in mind. It wasnt for me but quality and sound wise, it may just be for you...and it looks KILLER. ( I ending up returning the bass because i found it uncomfortable to play for long periods)
