Aerodyne Special Telecaster Electric Guitar - California Blue

The Aerodyne Special Telecaster’s neck is loaded with high-performance appointments that will appease even the most demanding of guitarists! Starting off with the classic combo of a maple neck and a rosewood fingerboard, this guitar’s flat 12-inch radius and medium-jumbo frets are quite a departure from the standard Fender formula, yet they deliver a seriously smooth and effortless feel that facilitates light-speed licks and massive multi-step bends. Additionally, the Modern “C” shape offers a quick, fast-playing base when laying out your licks, and the headstock is loaded with Deluxe Cast/Sealed Locking tuners for maximum stability.
