Overview

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 a formidable 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.

    Played great right out of the box. Only minor string hight adjustment to my liking and it's rocking. Excellent finish, Sound, and feel.

    I could not be more disappointed and disillusioned with GC..

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

    I could not be more disappointed and disillusioned with Guitar Center than I am with this transaction. I have been wanting an American Standard Stratocaster for a long time. With the close-out pricing in place to make room for the new American Pro series, it finally became affordable enough for me to take the plunge.

    The salesperson at the local store did everything right and did a good job. It's in the fulfillment end of the deal that the disillusionment starts... I bought a new American Standard Strat, but that's not what I received. GC shipped the guitar in an off brand case, missing all the usual 'case candy' that's supposed to be there. No strap, no tools, no springs, documentation in a foreign language, and, get this, no tremolo bar!

    Then, it became obvious this was not a new guitar. It certainly appears to have been sold and returned once already. The tremolo spring was missing, signs of playing time, etc. coupled with the off-brand case and missing parts, it's clear I got a used guitar when I purchased a new guitar. I expect better from GC, and maybe should have driven the extra few miles to the Sweetwater retail store.

    The salesperson did nothing wrong, and of course Fender didn't do anything wrong. As far as I know, this is a great guitar, as you would expect from Fender.

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

      This is an awesome guitar! Love it. I've been getting acquainted with it. I'd researched the reviews, thru YouTube, and Fender had taken care of the complaints. Such as the volume knob was too loose, the tremolo bar was dangling, etc.. all that has been addressed. They even threw in the Schaller strap locks, which are really nice.
