The collaboration between Fender and Tim Shaw has resulted in one truly unique and oustanding HSS Strat. The tone can easily run from hot to sweet, with custom electronic circuitry and the addition of a Shawbucker humbucker pickup aiding the tonal range of this superb guitar.
More than your average American Standard Strat!
Hand-built in the USA, this hot-rodded edition of the American Standard Stratocaster offers even more dynamic range and tonal versatility, without straying from the tried-and-tested formula of a classic Strat.
Custom Humbucker Bridge Pickup
At the neck and middle position, this Strat comes loaded with a pair of 50s Single-Coil pickups for great, classic Strat tone. However, switch over to the bridge, and you're loaded with a pure and powerful Humbucker tone courtesy of legendary pickup guru Tim Shaw. Control the balance perfectly with independant 500k and 250k pots, setting the stage for a blend of brilliance, shine and in-your-face tone.
Tweaked to perfection
Over the years, the Strat has changed very little. Why fix something that isn't broken, right? The sleek, contoured Alder body has defined the tone and playability of the Strat since 1956 and remains today. The trademark 'whammy' tremolo system offers up outrageous string-bending tone without affecting tuning stability. However, modern innovations have helped Fender craft the Strat to perfection. A thinner undercoat finish offers improved resonance, while a copper-infused bridge block further adds to the tone consistency and performance.
Premium comfort neck
The latest incarnation of the all-American Fender Standard Strat employs the hand-rolled fingerboard edges that players love. A super smooth neck finish makes fast fretting a dream and offers great accessibility all the way up the fretboard.
Case and Accessories Included
As with all American-made Fenders, the Standard Stratocaster comes with a hardshell case and all the case candy - Cable, Strap, Polishing Cloth and Trem Arm all included. Everything you need to keep your prized guitar in tip top shape. Nothing quite beats the feeling of unearthing a box-fresh Strat straight from the Factory. Fantastic!
Along with all the other great American Standard Stratocaster HSS features players already love, it’s a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.
