OVERVIEW

Ground-breaking pickups and all the pro features.

Often copied, but never surpassed, the Stratocaster is arguably the world’s most-loved electric guitar. Electrifying the music world since its release in 1954, its natural, versatile sound made the Stratocaster the benchmark for exceptional guitar tones. The American Professional Stratocaster HSS ShawBucker isn’t a re-imagining of the classic design; it’s the authentic original model, evolved.

The fat-sounding ShawBucker humbucking bridge pickup is joined by tone wizard Tim Shaw’s latest vintage-informed design—the V-Mod single-coil pickups. These brand-new pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.

Elite molded case included.

Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

My first impression while unpacking was the high quality of the case it came in. Then I opened it and I was floored by how beautiful the body was and the maple neck. Pictures on here doesn't do it justice. It's the most comfortable neck I've ever played on. Setup was near perfect. The high E string snapped on me but I was okay with it because I was wanting a different string gauge anyways. A few adjustments to my liking and it was perfect. The term is very smooth. Fret edges were smooth and I really dig the tall frets. The humbucker is a bit weak as compared to other humbuckers but it suites the other single coils and has great harmonic response so I was very okay with this. It's very light weight and it's easy to sit down and play with. The treble bleed circuit is amazing. Having a tone on the bridge pickup is a nice change I think it makes more sense that way. Overall it's a solid guitar and I'm glad I made the purchase.

Comments about Fender American Professional Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

A little skeptical for a First time guitar purchase online. You just don't know what you were gonna get. Have to say it's every bit American quality...sounds great! Very little setup had to be done to it.
