Sound of the HSS Setup
The humbucker, single, single pickup configuration is a long-time favorite of players in need a guitar that can do it all. The dual single-coils in the forward positions provide the vintage Strat tone of the surf-rock '60s with chiming, bell-like high-end. For players looking for a little something extra, the humbucker in the bridge position packs plenty of fat double-coil tone with robust mids and lows to complement the sparkle of the single-coils.
