Supercharge your sound with the scorching rock tones of the Blacktop Stratocaster HH. Featuring classic Strat playability with the added punch of two high-output humbuckers, the Fender Blacktop Stratocaster HH delivers serious rock power at an outstanding price. Rounded out with a custom five-way pickup selector and synchronized tremolo bridge, this HH Strat is a stellar choice for players looking for the familiar feel of a Strat with an extra helping of high-octane rock tone.

Dual Humbuckers with Five-way Pickup Selector

Part of the popular Blacktop series, the HH Strat sports two high-output overwound alnico humbuckers. Use the custom five-way pickup selector to engage the neck pickup, bridge pickup, both at once, or one of two distinct coil-splitting settings. The middle position and the bridge pickup lay the foundation of searing rock sounds, but that's not all this beast has in store. Try isolating the neck pickup and hear robust, warm cleans straight out of a classic jazz recording from the '50s. Or switch the selector blade to the second coil-splitting position and hear some genuine countrified Telecaster twang. The Blacktop Strat does it all with serious style and power, making this axe as versatile as it is rocking.

Standard Fender Hardware and Playability

It's not just the blazing humbucker tones that makes this Strat such an excellent deal. Like the rest of the Blacktop line, this guitar is loaded with rock-solid Fender hardware and features. The neck is in a comfortable C profile and capped with a smooth rosewood fingerboard, and the 22 medium jumbo frets make elongated bends and tricky solo parts a breeze. Also included is a sturdy synchronized tremolo bridge with whammy bar in the mold of a classic Strat from the early '60s.

Features:

- Dual high-output alnico humbuckers
- Custom five-way pickup selector gives huge range of tonal options
- Alder body with maple neck and rosewood fingerboard
- Synchronized tremolo bridge with whammy bar
- 22 medium jumbo frets and 25.5" scale length

Customer Reviews

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender Blacktop Strat HH"
Overall: Great guitar, super value from Fender. The neck is sweet and fit and finish is A1. I've owned many US and Mexican guitars over my life and currently prefer the Mexican Fenders as it's truer to vintage Fenders than the US. The US Fenders are great but with new refinements added almost yearly they've drifted away from the feel of the fenders I remember in my youth. Now as far as this guitar even though it has humbuckers the coil split (my favorite position) does give a somewhat traditional tele sound which is cool on a strat. One drawback is the pickups, unless your a metal guy they're too hot and muddy. That said it's a keeper for me as I ordered some PAF's for it to suit my style of playing when I want the humbucker or Les Paul sound, Great choice of colors and pick guard combinations too, Even with $130 for two DiMarzio PAFs this axe still comes in as great bang for the buck,
Style of Music: blues, classic rock, country More or less Elvis Copstello, Lucinda Williams style guita playing.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "I love this guitar......but what's up with the mint green pickguard?"
Sound: This guitar has a great sound, it's rich and clear, I've only ran it through a Marshall practice amp, it made me smile...... Feature: Whammy bar is great, There is one thing I do not like about this guitar..... it's the mint green pickguard, why a mint green pickguard..... I special ordered a white metallic flake one. It stays in tune easy to play. Very versatile. Ease of Use: I got some great sound from it with a little Marshall practice amp. It will crunch if it you want it to. Quality: Seems well made, rosewood fretboard is beautiful. Value: Yes Manufacturer Support: Called to ask them about a replacement pickguard in white, they were helpful. The Wow Factor: The sonic blue is gorgeous, I purchased the white leather studded guitar strap from this same website. Its in a Tantrum Black coffin case, people are surprised when they see a baby blue guitar in there. Overall: I would definately replace it.
Style of Music: Rock, classic rock, rockabilly
