The combination of Custom Shop Fat 50′s single coil neck and middle pickups and a Diamondback humbucking bridge pickup produces a broad enough range of tones to cover every music style.
The combination of bent-steel saddles, high-mass bridge block and a thinner finish undercoat contribute to this model’s exceptional resonance and sustain.
Hand-rolled fingerboard edges and the back of the neck being satin-finished make the neck feel fast and exceptionally comfortable.
Among the new American Standard Stratocaster guitars, the HSS model is the hot rod of the bunch, with a Diamondback humbucking pickup in the bridge position in addition to it’s Custom Shop Fat 50′s neck and middle pickups. The S-1 switch is removed to keep it simple, but don’t worry – we kept key features such as the hand-rolled fingerboard edges and staggered tuning machines, and we added several new features, including an improved bridge with bent-steel saddles and a copper-infused high-mass block for increased resonance and sustain. Other features include tinted neck, high-gloss maple or rosewood fingerboard, satin-finished neck back, thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, and Fender-exclusive SKB molded case.
