The HS-2 has history behind it. It was the first humbucking Strat replacement pickup we made in the early 1980's. Since then, it's become popular for two distinct qualities: in humbucking mode, it's got a solid, natural sound that's cleaner and brighter than a conventional humbucker, while single coil mode creates one of the best vintage tones around. Eric Johnson was the first player to make use of this feature. Because of it's patented design, single coil mode is not as noisy as a standard single coil pickup. Taken together with the dead quiet humbucking mode, this is an excellent pickup to use with rack systems and high gain amps.
