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.
