Fender Japan Aerodyne Stratocaster Chrome Red & new hard case



This 2017 Fender Japan Aerodyne Stratocaster is in lovely condition. The Aerodyne Strats are probably my best sellers. As they have a Rosewood fretboard, I haven't been able to import them for a couple of years but since the restrictions have been lifted, I will be bringing in quite a few!  Other than black, they are impossible to find in the UK as they are really only built for the Japanese domestic market. They are a lightweight Stratocaster with a carved, bound top and a colour matched headstock. They come in two different scale lengths, the shorter 24.75" M scale & the standard 25.5" scale. They are a lovely looking guitar.

This guitar was made in 2017 and is in very good condition. I've had a good look over it and the only notable marks are some scratching to the scratchplate  and a couple of small dents along the top edge and on the top which have been repaired (see gallery pics) When I gave it a quick set up, the intonation was correct and the action was very good.

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
