Product Description

Mixing modern sound and a plethora of innovative features with traditional visual style, the American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker doesn’t just push the envelope—it completely annihilates it. Designed for modern players who need tonal variety on tap, as well as unprecedented performance and supple playing feel, this top-notch performer delivers every single time you plug it in and play.

Fender American Elite Strat HSS Shawbucker Features

  • Double cutaway electric guitar
  • Two all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Stratocaster pickups; single Shawbucker open-coil humbucking bridge pickup
  • Push-push switch enables ‘passing lane’ mode
  • Compound profile neck; redesigned contoured neck heel
  • 9.5-14 inches compound radius fingerboard
  • Locking short-post tuning machines; speedy soft-touch control knobs
  • Includes redesigned ABS Elite Molded Case with TSA locks
All-New American Elite Neck
Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern C-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern D-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.

All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

S-1 Switch
The S-1 switch activates alternate wiring options for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel

The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

Passing Lane Switch
The Passing Lane switch kicks your sound into overdrive, rerouting the bridge pickup and bypassing the tone circuit for hotter output with enhanced overtones, blowing the doors off your sound. Discretely located between the tone controls, the low-profile push-push switch is easy to activate while resisting accidental triggering.

What is your opinion of this product?
Bought this as a Factory Minor Blemish Product. I usually play live once (sometimes twice) per week. This guitar is AMAZING! A few weeks ago my other guitar had too much noise on stage....they turned me down....grrrr. With this beauty there is no noise! I did hear a little; however, it was a pedal and not this guitar. So obviously I was very apprehensive about purchasing a factory blemished product; however, it was well worth the discount. I cannot overstate how awesome this guitar sounds. So, I will list everything I found wrong with the guitar: - The Jack was very loose. Easy fix, I put a dash of fingernail polish on the nut and tightened it. - Had a very small (surface finish only) scratch on back that I had to take it out in the sun to see. -The pick guard is not flush -Setup wasn't even close. You will have to have it setup. I know how so it wasn't a big deal and most guitarist prefer to set their guitar us themselves anyway. Overall AMAZING and I highly recommend

I love this so much I divorced my wife!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I really do love this guitar, she is so sweet, lighter than most guitars I’ve owned and I’ve owned a lot of guitars. She plays great, was easy to set up (came almost set up just small fine tuning), so easy to play and herd to put down. If you are looking for an all around guitar, win, place or show this guitar is for you.

Awesome sound and feel
What is your opinion of this product?
Great deal on a blemish item, the tiny scratch on the back and cover around pickup raise on one side of pickup which I can correct. Sounds awesome

I love my fender
What is your opinion of this product?
I love this guitar, it plays so easy,easy-to-use. Light weight. You can really move around with it, the only feature I'm not really in to is the little push button in back next to the tone. It does have a great sound, it just doesn't give you the control off your volume: you must use your amp's volume control setting. I use a preset on my Marshall JVM410H. But all around I still think it's a great guitar. I play more now than my 95 less Paul standard firetop.

A Beautiful Guitar!
What is your opinion of this product?
Right out of the box, this guitar is one of the best I've played. The feel of the 9.5-14 inch compound radius & C to D neck is really comfortable. The action right from the factory is outstanding and the sound of this guitar is also unbelievable. I have to say, Fender really knocked this one out of the park. I was unsure whether to go with or without the HSS Shawbucker, so I went with the HSS. I believe I made a great choice as the overall tone and feel of this guitar is just beautiful. The guitar is well built and when you pick it up, you're not going to want to put it down. AMS did a great job in shipping right away and as always, I received it in beautiful condition. This is my 5th guitar from AMS and not once have I ever been disappointed!! I currently own a 2015 Gibson LP Traditional, a 2014 EVH Wolfgang USA Stealth, a 2014 Gibson LP Custom , a 2013 Fender American Standard Strat, and this guitar. This is a beautiful piece of art and you won't be disappointed. Best of luck!!
