Fender American Elite HSS Shawbucker Strat - Satin Ice Blue Metallic / Maple
The Fender American Elite HSS Shawbucker Stratocaster delivers traditional style with modern appointments and sound. It features the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups and a powerful Shawbucker humbucker at the bridge.
With its traditional style and host of modern appointments, including a powerful Shawbucker humbucker at the bridge, the Fender American Elite HSS Shawbucker Stratocaster is a hugely versatile instrument with supreme feel, playability and tone.
Fender enlisted humbucking pickup guru Tim Shaw to create a new bridge humbucker with unrivaled tone, delivering a new landmark in Fender pickup design...the Shawbucker is the ultimate in modern humbucking tone. The middle and neck single coil pickups come in the form of the latest 4th generation Fender Noiseless pickups. Delivering a quantum leap in pickup design, these pickups excel in producing vintage style tone with that all important noise-free performance - great for stage and studio. Get ultra pristine cleans all the way up to fat, rocking overdrive tones all with superb articulation.
Added tonal versatility comes courtesy of the push-push switching. These enable the 'passing lane', which instantly re-routes to your bridge pickup signal, bypassing the tone circuit, kicking your tone into overdrive with enhanced overtones and high output.
The Fender American Elite Strat body follows classic Strat lines, albeit with newly refined, sleek and deeper contours that hug the player’s body. The new compound neck is designed for players requiring fast playing and effortless position changes. The neck is carved with a modern C shape at the nut which transforms into a modern D shaped profile at the heel.
Other features include the locking, all short-post tuning machines, that provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free performance whilst the smooth two-point modern tremolo adds emotive touches to your performance without sacrificing your tuning.
The American Elite Stratocaster includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection.
The Fender American Elite HSS Shawbucker Strat is designed for players who want to push the envelope. With its array of contemporary appointments, classic styling, exceptional feel, and modern tone, it's a true performer!
