The American Showcase Stratocaster® HSS features higher output V-Mod pickups and a matching Double Tap™ humbucking pickup voiced specifically for the Showcase Series. These unique pickups deliver powerful tone without sacrificing clarity or dynamic response. Single-coil sounds can be accessed via the push-pull tone controls; a treble bleed circuit maintains the high-end even when the volume is dialled down.
A five-way switch offers a multitude of sonic options. The maple neck features a compound Modern “C” to “D” back shape with a 12” radius rosewood fingerboard for fast play with a familiar feel. The headstock is painted to match the body. Hardware includes deluxe locking tuners and a 2-point synchronised tremolo system with bent-steel saddles and pop-in arm.
