Best Guitars With SS Configuration in 2022

Here you'll find the best guitars with SS configuration. This is the classic Telecaster configuration and it's used mainly for playing clean or with low-gain distortion. It doesn't give you as much versatility as a Strat SSS configuration, but you might like the cleaner look of a guitar body with fewer pickups.

We've found exactly 74 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.
