Overview

Fender Push The Envelope Even Further With The HSS Elite Stratocaster

2016 may see the dissapearance of Fenders "Deluxe" range but what players are treated to instead are their new line-up of super spec, Elite Stratocasters. The HSS model signifies a humbucker and dual single coil configuration which consists of a powerful Shawbucker open-coil humbucker in the bridge position and two 4th generation "Noiseless" single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. These incredible new "Noiseless" pickups are found only on Fender Elite series and might just the best single coils we've ever heard!

Fenders Own Words on The HSS Elite Stratocaster

The new Noiseless pickups’ hum-free vintage-style sound and the Shawbucker’s snarling midrange creates pristine cleans and gigantic overdriven tones for multidimensional classic Stratocaster sound turned up to 11. Push-push switching enables the “passing lane”, which instantly rerouts your bridge pickup signal, bypassing the tone circuit. This kicks your tone into overdrive with enhanced overtones and high output. Designed for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D” shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. New locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the new synthetic bone nut for buzz-free performance while the smooth two-point modern tremolo adds emotive touches to your performance without sacrificing your tuning. In a vintage-inspired touch, the new truss rod adjustment wheel has been moved to the butt end of the neck for easier access, making neck relief adjustments a snap.

Fender is renowned for mind-blowing style, and this guitar is no different from the redesigned sleek contours that hug the player’s body for an enhanced playing experience to the black chrome headstock logo, new modern string tree, large pearloid fret markers and unique new colors this instrument will dazzle the audience with classic aesthetics. The American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker is a bold new guitar for progressive players setting out to explore new musical frontiers. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.
