Free next day delivery within the UK if ordered before 1pm

Introducing the American Standard Stratocaster® HSS Shawbucker. For the purest and most powerful HSS sound, we enlisted acclaimed humbucking pickup guru Tim Shaw to create a brand-new bridge pickup of unrivaled tone and quality. Shaw’s expertise dates far back to his work with the first and biggest names in the history of humbucking pickup design, and the result of his efforts—the “Shawbucker” humbucking pickup—is an electrifying new landmark in Fender pickup design.

Shaw’s handiwork makes the American Standard Stratocaster® HSS Shawbucker a formidable new instrument for guitarists who want the ultimate in modern humbucking tone. The model is made even more forceful by the added innovation of a dual 250K/500K volume potentiometer, which optimizes the tonality of each pickup switch setting by automatically running the Shawbucker bridge pickup at 500K for greater openness and brilliance, while the neck and middle pickups run at 250K for spine-tingling single-coil sparkle. Along with all the other great American Standard Stratocaster HSS features players already love, it’s a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.
