Not only a country guitar, though it is, of course, just perfect for this genre. Similar to the Stratocaster, the single coil pickups are mandatory here. The well known trebly sound of the bridge pickup rocks pretty well when it’s slightly overdriven, while the neck pickup provides bluesy sounds. You can use a humbucker as the neck pickup as well; see Keith Richards (even if it doesn’t necessarily take just 5 strings). The pedal-steel country sounds and Stones-style double-stops are what really sound best on this guitar. The famous twang sound stems from its bridge pickup together with the corresponding metal plate, a long scale, the typical ash body and a maple neck.
