2016 Fender Japan Exclusive Classic Aerodyne Stratocaster Black & New Hard Case



The Aerodyne Stratocaster from Fender Japan is not often seen outside Japan. They are popular with the domestic market  I haven't seen many others in the UK (apart from my imports) They are a lightweight Stratocaster (this one is just 3.32kg) with body binding & a colour matched headstock. 

Fender Aerodyne Stratocasters sell really well due to their weight, their looks but also because of their flatter & more modern 9.84" fretboard radius which is often favoured to the vintage 7.25" The satin finish on the neck is popular too.  They either have a H/S/S pickup configuration or, like this one the traditional S/S/S. The other important feature with the Aerodyne is that they come in two scale lengths, the standard 25.5" or as a 24.75" or "Gibson" scale length. This Aerodyne has the standard scale length of 25.5" (648mm). The Aerodynes are equipped with Fender Japan vintage pickups which sound great.

This particular guitar is a later Aerodyne & is from Fender Japan's "Exclusive Classic" range. It is in near mint condition and has been well looked after. it is all original too. There are a few other minor marks around the edge of the body and some playing marks on the pickguard but that is about it. Please check out the gallery for detailed photos

Note re photos: I took these late afternoon on a very gloomy winter's day between rain showers. Black doesn't photograph well anyway and I hope to re take them on a brighter day!

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.
