STUDIO ELITE HD This guitar is all about getting back to basics, which has made it one of our most popular models. A mid-boost preamp plus good selection of hardware, pickup and finish options allow customized simplicity that still has plenty of “kick”.

Super - Bridge Humbucker High Output Humbucker

Modern straight-up rock pickup. Strong low end, less mid-range push than the Shark or the California Special, but more top end with a nice presence. Great for high gain. Cleans up nicely.

Alnico 5 magnets, counter clockwise winding direction, screw coil south and slug coil north polarity, 53mm wide f spacing, 50mm narrow g spacing. straight humbuckers have a standard coil layout and slanted humbuckers have a traditional Tyler coil layout with pickup at angle and offset coils. dc specs 17.60 +/-

JTS 5500 - Neck/Middle Singlecoil Alnico 5 Single Coil

Neck: Characterized by the familiar sound of the Alnico 5 magnets with more attack, more chime and more power. Full, balanced and responsive with good low end and upper mid sparkle. Wound for SSH application using a 500k volume pot. Nice vibrant 3D qualities.

Middle: Has the same characteristics of the neck but is reverse wound and has reverse polarity for hum cancelling in switch positions 2 and 4. Nice vibrant 3D qualities.

Neck: alnico 5 magnets, counter clockwise winding direction on neck and bridge pickups, clockwise winding direction on middle pickups, north pole top on middle pickups, south pole top on neck and bridge. dc specs 6.90 +/-
