Aero J Bass 5

Out of Stock

Product Description

Reviewed in the March 1999 edition of Bass Player Magazine, Aero’s J Bass 5 String pickup won a “Top Tone” award.  The complete comment, “Heavy lows, distinct upper mids, and round top that’s cool for finger style rock, blues, and country. (And ’70s-style funk.)  Broken-in vibe that’s fun to play. On tape, pickups have big bottom for a J, although the tone can get a bit thick.”
