Best Guitars With HSH Configuration in 2022

Here you'll find the best guitars with HSH configuration. Two humbuckers with one single-coil in the middle is a combination that people who love a warm neck Humbucker, but also a high output bridge pickup and cleanliness of a single-coil will appreciate. It gives a lot of versatility, but bear in mind that the middle pickup will have a lower volume, so you might want to adjust its height. The downside to this is that you might touch it with your pick sometimes if you increase its height too much.

We've found exactly 38 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.
