2010 Fender Aerodyne Stratocaster AST Gunmetal Blue, Near-Mint, Japan MIJ

$1,449.99

+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2010 Fender Aerodyne Stratocaster model AST in near-mint, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. An uncommon and discontinued model, this “Made in Japan” Strat was produced exclusively for the Japanese domestic market, featuring a Gunmetal Blue gloss finish with matching headstock and cream body binding. Loaded with a trio of staggered pole single coil pickups, this guitar delivers an array of classic Strat tonalities easily accessible via the five-way selector switch. There’s plenty of sparkle on tap; shimmering snap at the bridge, rounder, bell-like tones at the neck, and classic Strat quack at the “in-between” positions. This Strat weighs 8lbs, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
