Overview

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.

Includes hardshell case.

Great guitar. I enjoy playing it. I would buy again!!

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

I play a number of instruments and in a band that play music from the '60's, '70's and '80's, and decided it was time to step it up in terms purchasing a USA made guitar. I looked at PRS, Gibson and Fender. I looked at the Gibson Les Paul and it was a disappointment for me. The weight, the tuning issues, and the finish quality of the Gibson is lacking unless you are willing to spend more than $2,300.00. I looked at the PRS and while it is a great instrument, the Fender HSS Shawbucker setup cannot be beat.

Now, the Fender Telecaster American Professional. I got one with 22 fret, HSS Shawbucker, in 3-color Sunburst, with a Rosewood fretboard. The fit and finish is outstanding. The quality of the woods is top shelf. The neck is perfect. The deep-C profile makes it easy to play. The pickups make playing any genre of music easy. The bridge pickup can give you that hard rock growl and the five position pickup switch gives flexibility that is a perfect match for any amp, but even more so my Fender Twin Reverb. There are a few other cool features, like the the pop-in tremelo bar, the bone nut, the tuners were smooth and stayed tight and in tune, the tremelo system is easy to adjust and the treble-bleed circuit evens out the sound. Even the case is first-class and beats out anything Gibson matches up with its guitars.

In summary, the Fender Stratocaster American Professional's action is like butter, the quality of the build and materials are top notch and it is worth every penny spent. You can't go wrong buying it.

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

      I played guitar for many years in my youth and then playing gradually declined as parenting took over my life. I am now an empty nester and wanted to pick up where I left off and not did I invest in this Fender Strat. but I also bough a Taylor acoustic/electric. Two awesome choices and enjoying every minute of my new found freedom.
