Player's Perspective

New for 2017 is this limited edition American Professional in Silverburst with a jet black upgraded ebony fretboard!

This American Pro HSS keeps the Strat platform intact while venturing into new sonic territory. That humbucker in the bridge is a totally new design crafted by Tim Shaw, one of the top pickup gurus in the industry. This pickup has a whole lot of vintage humbucker in its DNA. Not overwound and never too bright, it breathes in a way that you rarely hear from new designs these days. There's great depth and dimension, lending itself to articulate, nuanced leads, soulful mid-position bends and throaty riffs in the low end. The rest of this axe is the great playing, well balanced and enduring American Professional Strat design. You can expect an exquisitely comfortable neck that's been dialed in for decades, impeccable fretwork and quality hardware. This stylistic chameleon of a guitar is easily one of the most musical axes on the market.

Manufacturer's Description

Often copied, but never surpassed, the Stratocaster is arguably the world’s most-loved electric guitar. Electrifying the music world since its release in 1954, its natural, versatile sound made the Stratocaster the benchmark for exceptional guitar tones. The American Professional Stratocaster HSS ShawBucker isn’t a re-imagining of the classic design; it’s the authentic original model, evolved. The choice of musical legends since its release, the Stratocaster feel and sound set the world on fire, powering music movements from rock 'n' roll to EDM, and everything in-between. In your hands this Strat is ready to navigate the creative twists and turns of your music, inviting you to express yourself in new ways through your playing.

Fat-sounding ShawBucker humbucking bridge pickup is joined by tone wizard Tim Shaw's latest vintage-informed design--the V-Mod single-coil pickups. These brand-new pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The new modern "Deep C"-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Stratocaster HSS ShawBucker is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender.
