Feel and Playability
The modern "C" shaped neck profile is a tried and true staple of the Fender line. It lives in that Goldilocks just right space and pairs perfectly with the flatter 12" fingerboard radius on the new Aerodyne Special. Enjoy lower action with less risk of "fretting out" on a flatter radius fingerboard.
Top Notch Hardware
Babicz bridges provide a more solid connection between the body and the strings. This results in increased sustain and improved intonation. The Babicz bridge also allows for individual string height adjustment, so you can set your action exactly where you want it. The locking tuners on the Aerodyne Special guitars keep your instrument in tune longer, so you can rock out with confidence. Restringing is a breeze with locking tuners as well, no more knots, loops, twists and ties, Just pull the string through, tighten the lock, and trim the excess.
New Exciting Colors
The new Aerodyne Special is available in a variety of different colorways including Chocolate Burst, California Blue, Speed Green Metallic, Dolphin Grey, Hot Rod Burst, and Bright White. All models have cream top binding and fingerboards may vary between
