Pickups: Duncan Designed HB-102b/HB-101n
The HB-102 was modeled after Seymour Duncan's USA-made SH-4 JB bridge. Like the HB-101s, this pickup also use Alnico 5 magnets, but have a hotter winding spec, based on the world's most popular "hot-rodded" humbucker. The bridge pickup is Trembucker-spaced.
The HB-101 was patterned after the Seymour Duncan SH-1 '59 Model humbucker set. It uses an Alnico 5 magnet and winding spec based on the revered 1955 - 1960 P.A.F.
The Tempest Standard’s design is completely unique. An semi-offset design with sweet finishes, this is a guitar that exudes some real mojo. We challenge you to find another mid-priced guitar with this kind of style, tone, playability, and quality because the Schecter Tempest Standard is anything but standard.
