The American Standard Stratocaster HSS Shawbucker has a modern 2-point synchronised tremolo bridge that contributes to greater sustain, better resonance and fluid tremolo action. Improved bent steel saddles are also featured, adding to the refined performance of this high quality instrument.

A 25.5'' scale length medium-thickness modern 'C' shape maple neck is comfortable and delivers bright sounds with great sustain, while the rosewood fingerboard has a 9.5'' radius and is flatter than vintage-style boards. 22 medium-jumbo frets provide a modern feel with improved comfort for hours of playability.
