(SOLD) Fender Japan Aerodyne Stratocaster Medium Scale AST-M Vintage White 2012
Fender Aerodyne Strat, medium scale version in vintage white, made in Japan 2012. This is very, very clean... there's be 'new' guitars hanging in stores with more marks than this. It's also a sleek, classy item with a whole lot to give. The Aero Strat has always turned heads owing to it's unusual carved bound top, and in this reverse-tuxedo finish, it's especially appealing. Being a medium scale, this one is a little slinkier under the fingers than a regular Strat, which combined with the light body and the slim neck makes this a walk in the park to play. The scale also means this produces a slightly darker and warmer tone than a regular Strat; it's especially nice on the bridge pickup. Basically, it's an addictive player that's dressed to kill.
