#2

H-S-S has a humbucker pick up in the bridge position and single coils in the rest, whilst the standard strat is an S-S-S becasuse it has all singlecoil pick ups
#5
So they make different sounds? Which one is better than the other or like which one plays what kind of genre?
#7
Humbuckers got a fatter sound while distorted, and a warmer sound while clean. Fits for everything from metal to jazz.

Single-coils make a "noisier" sound, more rock'n'rollish (hard to explain). A classic rock guitar tone.

I prefer humbuckers, I can't play on those weaky farken single-coils...
#8
So the humbucker ones are good to play rock,soft rock, pop, funk, and hiphopish? Great for canon rock?
#9
With an HSS, you'll have the option to play anything. You can get a fat distorted tone out of the humbucker, and that hendrix tone out of the single coils. Get the HSS.

Just play them both, and buy the one that feels good. You'll know which one it is, just try a bunch of each model out until you find a good one. Don't be afraid to check another guitar out if you see one in your price range, you never know if you'll fall in love with it. For example, I hated telecasters until I played one, now I've gotta have one.

um by chance do you have no previous knowledge of guitars
because epiphone dont make a model called the g-44 but make a g-400
also and american strat costs like £700 and the epi £170 so thats quitar a big difference in quality
and tone
and also dont forget an amp cos even the best gibson will sound bad through a rubbish amp

So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

He's talking about a mexi strat, and it's a typo for the G-400. He had a previous thread, and he's looking for his first guitar.

hums and singles are an acquired taste, you can like one more than the other but its always my opinion that neither are better than the other, even across the genres. its just down to your own taste
