2007 Fender Aerodyne Special Stratocaster AST-DMC SSH Flame Top Sunburst w/ Hangtags, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2007 Fender Aerodyne Special Stratocaster model AST-DMC SSH in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original gigbag and hangtags. Among the rarest of the Aerodyne Strats, this non-catalog model features a SSH pickup configuration, bookmatched bound flame maple top, and two-piece alder body. The top is also contoured in classic “drop top” fashion, making it notably ergonomic for the player, and other player-friendly touches include a 9 1/2“ fretboard radius, satin neck profile finish, and contoured neck heel.

This Strat comes loaded with a trio of DiMarzio Collection pickups. The two single coils are Heavy Drive DCS-2s, which deliver ample single coil sparkle with a rich, broad midrange and plenty of low end warmth. They’re high output for single coils; the neck pickup meters at 7.6k ohm and the middle meters 8.1k. The bridge position humbucker is sharp and aggressive, with focused low end, metering at a particularly hot 16.8k ohms. All three pickups take gain very well, remaining articulate and punchy.  This Aerodyne Strat weighs 7lbs 4oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.

The gloss two-tone Sunburst finish highlights the tight figuring in the bookmatched flame maple. Cosmetic wear is limited to just a scant few tiny nicks and finish scratches on the body as a whole, and the smooth satin finish on the neck profile is flawless.

The original gigbag is included, along with the serialized hangtag and manual.
