    I'm very pro Crafted in Japan/Made in Japan guitars. So when I bought a Fender Telecaster Black Dove Modern Player P90 MiM a while ago. I wasn't completely sold.

    So when this CIJ Aerodyne telecaster showed up on Evilbay recently I'd thought I'd go for it. It had been stored in its hardcase for a long time. My first requirement was to give it a good clean and setup with a new set of strings.

    I'm going to play this for a while before make my decision whether to keep the Black Dove modern player or the Aerodyne. I've only got room for one of them. [​IMG]

    Very nice! The Aerodynes look fabulous... hope it is as good to play as it is to look at!

    I really drooled over these in the middle 2000s, but never bought one.

    Visually, they are definitely nice. Let us know which one wins. You know everyone here will say keep both....

    I had one. Should have never let it go. I had a standing offer that was good and I needed the cash for a minty 1982 guitar find that was on hold at a bargain price. I thought that I would have found another one to replace it by now.

    Sometimes a steal of a deal makes you part with something.

    Cool guitars. They made them in white too, but didn't export them AFAIK.

    Nice guitar! I had one and sold it because I couldn’t get along with the thin neck. Otherwise it was a beauty.

    Love the matching burst headstock! It gives it a nice « cheap vintage Danelectro » vibe in a good way.

    So I love the sound you get in the middle position. It's twangy and fat at the same time. The P90 sounds great on its own but the single coil in the bridge doesn't have much bite.

    Also the 7.25 radius is small for my hands but not unplayable. Might consider swapping the neck for a 9.5 radius.
