FENDER 2006 AERODYNE PRECISION BASS Flame Maple Top Red Foto FMT CIJ Japan 06768


Regular price $1,100
Rare Aerodyne P-bass! 

Description
You're looking at a 2006 Fender Aerodyne Precision Bass in Wine Red Transparent finish Crafted in Japan. The tiger stripe effect on the flamed maple top is really eye-catching. The bass has both P- and J-style pickups, and a thinner bound P-bass body, making it very comfortable to hold and play. The neck has a narrow Jazz profile with a beautiful dark rosewood fretboard and matching red headstock. Cosmetically, it shows only minor playing wear and looks great for a 13-year-old bass. I'd call it 8.5/10 condition. There is one small ding on the front (see pics) and some mild worming that's hard to see on the back. Frets are in excellent condition with only mild wear. Weight is a comfortable 8 pounds, 7 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing—as well as full specs.) Thanks for looking.

-- Ship within 1 business day--pro packing.

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house trained luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!

Packing
I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Manufacturer Info

The Aerodyne Classic Precision Bass Special bridges the gap between Fender's ultra-progressive Aerodyne body profile and the vintage design of the highly revered, hard-working and hard-hitting bass that started it all. The figured maple top with cream binding and eye-catching transparent finishes take the Aerodyne concept to a new place, creating a stylistically modern but more comfortable and traditional aesthetic. Features include a basswood body, C-shaped maple neck with 7.25"-radius 20-fret rosewood fingerboard and matching painted headstock, three-ply mint-green pickguard, chrome bridge and tuning machines, a split single-coil Precision Bass Pickup in the middle position, and a single-coil Jazz Bass pickup at the bridge position. A contemporary spin on a timeless classic!
