Fender American Professional Series Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker


The Fender American Professional Series Stratocaster HSS is the reimagining of an icon, combining versatility with vanguard construction for a powerful sonic tool. Built on the foundation of two new Tim Shaw-designed V-Mod single-coil pickups in the neck and bridge with a throaty redesigned Shawbucker in the bridge, the Strat HSS wails, rips, and sears in any configuration, and a new treble bleed circuit ensures all that high-end presence stays right with you regardless of where you have the volume. Top it off with a whiplash fast "Deep C" neck profile and 22 narrow tall frets for smooth playing to match all that muscle.

    I bought this Strat as a second to my 1983 strat, but it has quickly become my go-to. Love the double bridge pickup, and the quality of the entire guitar is outstanding. You really can't go wrong with this guitar.

    I bought a new Fender American Special Stratocaster HSS Fiesta Red about a month previous to this Shawbucker HSS.

The instrument is beautifully made and very well set up. It's very pleasing to switc…
