The pickups in question are Powerful Alnico Humbuckers. These pups are wired to a five-way pickup selector, one master volume and two tone controls. As for tonewoods, the Strat features a mahogany body, C-shaped maple neck and 9.5-inch-radius pau ferro fingerboard with classic white dot inlays.

The HHH version is decked in an Olympic White finish that’s complemented by gold hardware and a black-painted headstock. The twin-humbucker model, on the other hand, sports chrome hardware and comes in two finishes: Black and Crimson Red Transparent.
