2013 Fender Japan AST Aerodyne Stratocaster Gunmetal Blue & New Hard Case

£799.00 + shipping






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 3.55kg) with body binding & a colour matched headstock. 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" M or "Gibson" scale length. This is the standard model with a 25.5" scale length. The Aerodynes are equipped with Fender Japan vintage pickups which sound great.

This particular guitar is in very good used condition. Frets are good with no indents. There are a few small dents and scratches on the body of the guitar and I had to do a small repair to the finish on the headstock as it had a chip missing.  The scratchplate has some scratching but that really is about it. The guitar is all original and it plays very well


What appeals to me about the Aerodynes is the modern look with body binding and a colour matched headstock and the flatter more modern 9.84" fretboard radius which makes them easier & so nice to play. Real head turning guitars. This is a really good example in the most popular colour.

All in all it's an excellent guitar from Fender in Japan that you probably won't find here in the UK

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 is a nice new fitted one from Thomann in Germany.  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
