The Fender 2015 catalog offers loads of new products in all categories. Let’s start the review with the Stratocaster Shawbucker guitars.

Fender introduces two Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker in the American Deluxe and American Standard series. “Shawbucker” refers to the new powerful humbucker pickups developed by specialist Tim Shaw which are installed on this guitar. On the American Standard, Fender completed the setup with a 250k/250k volume knob that optimized the sound of each pickup by automatically driving the humbucker to 500K for a more open and bright tone, while the dual single coil run at 250K.
