FENDER BLACKTOP STRATOCASTER HH

All the versions of this article: [Deutsch] [English] [français]


When Stratocaster players want to exchange the guitar’s classic sparking clean tone for full-throated thickness and high gain roar, their favorite way to do it is to mod theis beloved Strat guitars with humbucking pickups. That’s the idea behind Fender’s new Bmacktop Stratocaster HH guitar. Steamlined and amped up, it delivers heavy high-gain tone from its dual over-wound alnico humbucking pickups. Other features include skirted black amp knobs, synchronized tremolo bridge, alder body, maple neck with 9.5’’-radius rosewood or maple fretboard, 22 medium jumbo frets, gloss polyester finish and chrome hardware.
