ill probably get flamed for this but im kinda stumped. i've been looking around for a guitar with a humbucker (B) / single coil (N) setup. i've seen an ESP signature with that kind of setup and i've recently seen a hamer californian with that setup.

are there any newer models with that kind of setup? i might just have to take this old hamer on craigslist if there isnt.

You could always check out an HSS guitar.

Caparison Horus
Swing Shadow HS
Ibanez RG565 - oldie but goodie
Edwards E-KL

Those are off the top of my head but like said you could just get a HSS guitar and switch the 5 way switch for a 3 way switch and just lower the middle pickup so it doesn't get in your way.

Jackson surfcaster ... Saw one at a second hand shop and the H-S setup really intrigued me because the Single coil pickup was slanted like a bridge pickup on a strat. Been dying to try one out and see what it sounds like ever since.

I can promise you, that IF that is a USA Hamer and IF the price is right. You'll be hard pressed to find a better axe!

EDIT: I am guessing it may be this one? If so, that price is good! I use to have one and its a killer guitar! Not a USA model but still very nice!

I think it might be an older model because it looks like tha one but the fret inlays are just dots. those inlays are sexy.

the one I found on craigslist has just a LFR. I was kinda looking into replacing it with an OFR.

You can always get a guitar with a pickguard and change it to H-S

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

im fairly sure there are a few teles with HS

out of interest why not look at HSS???
#13
The Caparison Horus and the Kiko Loureiro signature from some Brazillian company are the only two I can think of right now.

you sir raised a good point, i did see 2 HS teles on a quick google images search however tehy had custom graphics on
#16
There's always the Gary Kramer Guitars R29 Turbulence. But I'm actually not sure if the neck pickup is a single coil or a double-stacked single coil, meaning it would be a humbucker.

But it has coil tap and 29 frets, and a Floyd of some kind...

You mean Tagima? I don't like most of their stuff it's too angly it reminds me slightly of DBZ guitars.

That's a H/X as well but **** me dead I would still buy it any day of the week any year even if it means I need to sell my body.

buy a H-H guitar and coil tap the neck pickup.
Or try a H-S-H

I've tried h/s/h and h/s/s before and I didn't really dig it too much. thanks for the idea about the pickguard for the strat but I'm not really to fond of strats.

does anyone know anything about changing the LFR in the californian to an OFR? I mean like would it fit?

If it is like the model in the picture I posted above, then yeah it will fit. I am pretty sure even the "Hammer by Slammer' models wiill work as well.

Squier 51



i think they're really cool. they're old and out of production, but you can find them around kind of cheap. they're basswood bodies and have a tele neck. kind of a cool frankenstein guitar, and they're known for being modded to all hell and back by their owners. i'm modding one right now actually

No pickup switch?

Jag-Stangs are H/S, that's what I play with actives installed

I've also seen Fender HM Strats routed for dual humbuckers, but they have a cut-down tele pickguard and a single coil in the neck. These are rare though.

The George Lynch ESP models are mostly H/S (Kamikaze models come to mind)

Some older Kramer Stagemasters have that setup too

No pickup switch?

No tone knob. They have a push pull volume knob to tap the bucker, and the second knob is a pup selector dial. :wink:

Just sold one recently...
