2012 Fender Aerodyne Stratocaster AST-M/SSH Medium Scale 24 3/4" Black, Japan MIJ


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2012 Fender Aerodyne Stratocaster medium scale model AST-M/SSH in excellent, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. A "Made in Japan" exclusive model not designed for export, this Strat features a shorter 24 3/4" scale length, contoured neck heel, satin neck profile finish, and a 9 1/2" radius fretboard; all player-friendly features engineered for fast playing and easy bending.

The basswood body offers a neutral, balanced tonal profile, especially favored for high gain scenarios, and the Dragster bridge position humbucker is clear and rich-sounding, equal parts punchy and cutting. The neck and middle position ceramic magnet single coils do a great job keeping pace with the humbucker, delivering more authority and power than traditional Strat pickups.  Featherweight at 7lbs 3oz, this Strat has been professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action and spot-on intonation.
