The HSS pickups are a combination between the new Yosemite units and a DoubleTap humbucker. The Yosemites are hand-wound and made specially for this range, providing a relatively high output and a nice bold sound. The DoubleTap has a thick and full sound which is ideal for rock however it can also be split into a single coil. The really impressive feature is that there is no volume loss between the humbucking and single coil mode.
