Dates of manufacture: 

Fender's Japanese made Aerodyne Classic Stratocaster was designed to bridge the gap between Fender's progressive Aerodyne Stratocaster body profile and the traditional Stratocaster design. This model was perhaps a response by Fender to guitars like the Tom Anderson Drop Top which had put contemporary spin on the timeless Stratocaster using basswood bodies, transparent finishes and bound figured maple tops. Unlike the Anderson Drop Top, however, the Aerodyne Classic did not have a forearm contour - but its radiused top has a similar effect.

The Aerodyne Classic Stratocaster had a figured maple top with cream binding and choice oftransparent finishes. It had a basswood body, C-shaped maple neck with 7.25"-radius 22-fret rosewood fingerboard and matching painted headstock, three-ply mint-green Stratocaster pickguard, chrome hardware and aged plastic parts, The tuners were Fender/Ping units. The bridge wa a vintage-style synchronized tremolo.
