Fender is a colossus in the guitar industry, well-known and loved for their huge range of top quality instruments. Now, hailing from Fender in Japan, we introduce the Special Run Aerodyne Stratocaster. Kitted out with a set of dependable and unique appointments, this limited edition Japanese model has everything you need and anticipate from a Stratocaster. Only a limited number have been released for sale in the UK so move fast to avoid missing out!
The Aerodyne Strat has a slender double cutaway body, an instantly recognisable and iconic body shape. This Special Run edition uses bound basswood for the body and is given a radiused top. Combined with the curves and contours of the body outline this provides an ultimately comfortable playing feel. Basswood is a fairly dense tonewood but has a lightweight feel that reduces fatigue on stage and is easy to hold.
A sturdy maple neck is firmly fitted to the body and shaped to an oval profile for improved grip in the hand. An interesting feature of the neck is that it has a 24 3/4 inch scale length neck rather than 25.5 inches, enhancing the overall playing feel and sound. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard, providing 22 medium jumbo frets on a sumptuous playing surface which contributes to an articulate tone. The frets are adequately decorated with dot inlays to guide you up and down the neck with confidence.
The Aerodyne Strat is equipped with a thunderous set of pickups with a Dragster BB in the bridge, and two ST-Single Coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. By having a combination of a humbucker and two single-coil pickups, you have an expansive range of tones at your fingertips, from the quintessential Fender Strat sound to hard, crunchy rock or even smooth blues and jazz.
The FSR Aerodyne has a simple interface with Master Volume and two-tone controls accompanied by a 5-way pickup switch blade.
Fender have chosen a vintage style S5D synchronized tremolo bridge with standard steel saddles to provide sustain for this Special Run Strat. The added tremolo with "whammy bar" bolsters the tonality of the guitar, allowing for even more sonic expression.
The headstock is kitted out with dependable Gotoh SD91-NI tuners that, along with the tremolo bridge and bone string nut, work wonderfully to uphold tuning integrity with precision.
Fender Japan have given the Aerodyne a sleek Vintage White finish, complemented by a protective and decorative black pickguard. The Fender FSR Japan Aerodyne Stratocaster is a limited edition well worthy of adding to your guitar collection.
