Fender has introduced new versions of the American Standard and American Deluxe Strat with a Tim Shaw designed humbucker in the bridge position. Pickup guru Shaw has created a brand new pickup with unrivaled tone and quality for the new models launched at NAMM 2015. 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. Its forceful Shawbucker bridge pickup is complemented by N3 Noiseless single-coil neck and middle pickups for classically brilliant sparkle, and with all the other great American Deluxe Stratocaster HSS features players already love, it’s a truly phenomenal new Strat experience.
