Fender's American Elite Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker has a series of modern features with a traditional visual style. The American Elite Series is equipped with a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and 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 for better support.

The all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, offer authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance for crisp, clear tones. The S-1 switch placed atop the volume control activates alternate wiring for even more tonal variation options.
