Best Guitars With HS Configuration in 2022

Here you'll find the best guitars with HS configuration. One humbucker at the bridge will give you a lot of output, but you'll also have the bright sound of a Tele or Strat neck pickup for your clean tones.

We've found exactly 26 guitars like this in production this year. You can see them all by clicking on 'Load More' at the end of this list. You can use our filters to the left to see only the exact types of guitar you want. You can also click on "Compare" to get a deep spec comparison between two guitars of your choice. This list is updated daily automatically as we add new guitars to our database. We'll show you first the best ones according to our automated scoring system, which takes into account dozens of parameters to determine the build quality, playability, pickups quality, value for money and more.
