The Fender HSS series guitars are quite a good foot forward for me when it comes to versatility in guitars. I prefer humbucker s in my guitars so the fact that my favorite body shape guitar has a humbukcer in it is a nice feature. This guitar features three pickups with a humbucker in the bridge position a single coil in the middle and a single coil in the neck position. This allows for some great tones to be had with a selection of different pickups.

I really prefer these guitars with the Marshall JCM 800 amplifier of some sort. Or just any hundred watt Marshall amplifier in general. It's the same set up that Jimi Hendrix and so many other players after him have used and it's such a great and fantastic and easy tone to chief. These guitars are fantastic when coupled with the good delay pedal or maybe an overdrive pedal and a solid amplifier of some kind. If you're into clean amplifiers and like to use a lot of the effects or pedals then a fender clean amp such as a twin reverb or Princeton amp will do you very well. If you're more into higher gain tones that I suggest playing this through a Mesa boogie amplifier or even a Marshall amplifier of some sort. Either way this guitar with sound great in pretty much any mix to you have. They aren't that great at drop tuning or alternate tunings as much but they will give you a great solid clean or dirty guitar tone.


This is one of the most established guitars in the instrument industry. You can find them in just about every single guitar shop and music shop around the world. They are priced new at right around $1000 but you can find them very easily in the used classified section. I highly recommend this guitar to any guitar player out there because of its warm tone and its solid feel. The humbucker is a nice touch for the superstrat person or player.
