Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker
Introducing the Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker. For the purest and most powerful HSS sound, we 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 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker a formidable new instrument for guitarists who want the ultimate in modern humbucking tone. Its forceful Shawbucker bridge pickup is complemented by N3 Noiseless™ single-coil neck and middle pickups for classically brilliant sparkle, and with all the other great American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS features players already love, it’s a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.
The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker comes with an alder body with gloss polyurethane finish, a maple neck with a modern “C” shape, rosewood or maple fingerboard (depending on the color you buyy, check image below), 25.5″ scale length, a 9.5″ radius, 22 medium jumbo frets, the nut is a LSR Roller, white dot pearloid inlays and it has a satin urethane neck finish.
The Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker has a Shawbucker™ pickup in the bridge, a Noiseless™ N3 Single-Coil Strat in the middle and again, a Noiseless™ N3 Single-Coil Strat in the neck. It comes with a master volume (with S-1™ Switch) and 2 tone knobs, one for the neck pickup and one for the middle and bridge pickups. It has a 5 way pickup selector: Position 1. Bridge Pickup, Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup, Position 3. Middle Pickup, Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup, Position 5. Neck Pickup.
The bridge is a 2-Point Deluxe Synchronized Tremolo with Pop-In Arm and tunning machines are the Deluxe Staggered Cast/Sealed Locking.
