Overview

Introducing the American Deluxe 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 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 player salready love, it's a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.

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

    I don't have the technical knowledge of many, but this guitar meets my two most important requirements. Do I enjoy spending time with it? Do I feel limited by it?

    I very much enjoy spending time with this guitar. To me, that's very important. The guitar and I have to get along and I really enjoy interacting with it.

    Secondly, I need to feel I have room to go. This guitar has loads and loads of room. It will be some time I think before I bump into this guitars limits.

    Also, it looks really good, and we know it's all about looks ;-) But seriously, really solid, really nice, good guitar.

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

          Right now this is my favorite Stratocaster and I have eight, four are American Deluxe including the Shawbucker American Deluxe. This American Standard Shawbucker just has more pick sensitivity and range of output compared to the American Deluxe Shawbucker and my American Standard HSS with the same CS fat 50's but a different humbucker in the bridge. The N3 pickups in the American Deluxe are quiet but the Custom shop fat 50's in this guitar are great if you're not using too high of a gain setting, but if you are, just use the bridge pickup and roll some treble off and you will be fine. The dual pot volume control must have something to do with the range of soft to loud sounds you can get from this guitar by just picking softly, but the sound is still crystal clear when whisper quiet yet jump on the strings and this guitar will scream and soar. It will drive a tube amp without a pedal with a sweet overdrive. I love it. Go for it.

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

            Let me start off by saying that I am a professional guitar player that spends a fair amount of time writing, playing live and recording. I have a decent guitar collection including Gibson, PRS, Stats, etc. I picked up the Pearl White with Rosewood and the Shawbucker pickup. I was fortunate enough to compare this with another HSS Strat with custom shop pickup upgrades. Both sound amazing but the Shawbucker has this presence and growl that you just have to hear to believe. The guitar feels amazing and the quality is unsurpassed. I am really happy with Fender's quality, feel and sound. I play in a hard rock/metal band and this guitar sounds and feels incredible. I am happy I went for the American Deluxe with the compound radius fretboard and all of the upgrades. I love this guitar and highly recommend you add it to your collection!
