OVERVIEW

Pure and powerful HSS sound.

Introducing the American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker. For the purest and most powerful HSS sound, Fender enlisted acclaimed humbucking pickup guru Tim Shaw to create a brand-new bridge pickup of unrivaled tone and quality. Shaw's expertise dates far back to his work with the first and biggest names in the history of humbucking pickup design, and the result of his efforts-the "Shawbucker" humbucking pickup-is an electrifying new landmark in Fender pickup design.

Shaw's handiwork makes the American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker aformidable new instrument for guitarists who want the ultimate in modern humbucking tone.The model is made even more forceful by the added innovation of a dual 250K/500K volume potentiometer, which optimizes the tonality of each pickup switch setting by automatically running the Shawbucker bridge pickup at 500K for greater openness and brilliance, while the neck and middle pickups run at 250K for spine-tingling single-coil sparkle. Along with all the other great American Standard Stratocaster HSS features players already love, it's a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.

    Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Its always personal but it felt natural right away. The action came slightly high but I like the way it sounds. I just might keep that way. The rosewood finger boards takes out the piercing sound that a strat makes. HSS configuration is wonder. I never liked a single coil at the bridge, the humbucker which sounds great takes the guitar to another level. So far I am not hear any reason to change the pick ups. No regrets. For all you Fender people like myself it's a must.

        Comments about Fender American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

        The new humbucker pickup sounds amazing. It works very well with the single coil pickups with a balance tone. Can not wait to take it out again for my next gig because I can play any kind of music with this guitar. If you live in the Philadelphia area and you need to get your guitar worked on, do not go to Ron ruggiero because he does very poor work. If you decide to buy this gutar, you can not go wrong.
