Brand new 2014 Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker - 3 Tonebst, Rosewood Fretboard, Alder Body, Maple Neck.
To give the FENDER American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker a unique voice, Fender tapped into the extensive pickup knowledge of Tim Shaw. Tim has designed tons of awesome-sounding humbucking pickups in his time, and the "Shawbucker" in the bridge position of the American Deluxe Strat HSS Shawbucker is one of his best. The sound is big and open, with a modern bite that's perfect for overdriven and high-gain tones.
Fender voiced the American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker for big, open tone with plenty of chime and sparkle. This is achieved by running the Shawbucker bridge pickup at 500K, for greater openness and brilliance, while the neck and middle pickups run at 250K for sparkly single-coil tones.
