The Aerodyne Stratocaster from Fender Japan is not often seen outside Japan. They are popular with the domestic market & other than a few Black ones, I haven't seen any others in the UK (apart from my imports) They are a lightweight Stratocaster (this one is just 3.22kg) with body binding & a colour matched headstock. The other important feature with the Aerodyne is that they come in two scale lengths, the standard 25.5" or, like this one, as a 24.75" or "Gibson" scale length. The shorter scale length is great.0.75 may not seem much but it means much easier string bending and the neck, being slightly smaller makes those 5 fret stretches a bit easier : The smaller body & neck is particularly popular with people with small hands. The Aerodynes are equipped with Fender Japan vintage pickups which sound great. This particular guitar is in great condition but did have a couple of small dents when it came in. I have repaired the one on the top of the guitar and it isn't very noticeable now. It is smooth to the touch & polished. 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. Here's another amazing video from Session guitarist Robin Burrows putting this guitar through its paces.
