Edit

 

The Fender Blacktop Telecaster HH is an electric guitar that uses dual humbucking pickups. The features and simplicity of the design is similar to the Fender Blacktop Jaguar HH, but the Alder body has been redesigned and a reversed chrome control plate is used at the pickup switch and control knobs. A hard-tail bridge design is used here as well. The same pair of overwound humbucking pickups are used here, providing powerful sound without electric distortion. The fretboard is available in Rosewood or Maple, according to preference, and the Alder body comes in 3 different color options. The hardware is finished in nickel and chrome, and a 3-ply pickguard is used to increase durability.
