Fender’s American Professional Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker caters to the modern, harder players who are loyal to the Stratocaster but demand more bite. The two Tim Shaw-designed Shawbucker pickups are voiced for each position and absolutely rip. Treble Bleed circuitry maintains your highs when playing at a lower volume, and the modern “Deep C” neck profile sits comfortably in the hand for a more aggressive but very comfortable take on the Stratocaster.
About Fender American Professional Series:
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
An extension of Fender’s flagship line of iconic electric guitars like the Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Jazzmaster, and Jazz and Precision basses, the Fender American Professional series represents Fender’s diligent pursuit of perfection through reinvention. Revitalizing the American Standard series models with novel features like new neck profiles, fret sizing, genuine bone nuts, and pickup sets, American Pro is American Standard evolved.
