The company teamed up with Fralin Pickups to design a humbucker with note clarity and focused mids that's based on Fralin's Unbucker.

Scottsdale, AZ (November 17, 2017) -- Mad Hatter Guitar Products is excited to announce the release of the Mad Hatter Super Shredder humbucker pickup to their amazing product line.

Now covering the full spectrum of guitar electronics, Mad Hatter Guitar Products has teamed up with Fralin Pickups for their first set of pickups.

The Mad Hatter Super Shredder humbucker pickups were designed to have incredible note clarity and be very responsive. The pickups have focused mids that sit perfectly in the mix, and double-screw coils that have no volume loss and sound like a true single-coil.

Starting with pickups that Mad Hatter recognized as a benchmark, they developed a criteria as to what the Super Shredder humbucker pickups should be. Working with Lindy Fralin and starting with the prized Fralin Unbucker as the base, the Super Shredder was born.

The Super Shredder humbuckers are available exclusively at and available in Black, White, & Zebra with the choice of Nickle, Gold, or Black screws. Black and Zebra are available in both standard and tremolo spacing. White is available in tremolo spacing.

The Super Shredder Humbucker Pickups are priced at $174.99 per pickup.

I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.

A modern take on Fullerton shapes and a blend of Fender and Gibson attributes strikes a sweet middle ground.

A stylish alternative to classic Fender profiles that delivers sonic versatility. Great playability.

Split-coil sounds are a little on the thin side. Be sure to place it on the stand carefully!


Fender Player Plus Meteora HH


After many decades of sticking with flagship body shapes, Fender spent the last several years getting more playful via their Parallel Universe collection. The Meteora, however, is one of the more significant departures from those vintage profiles. The offset, more-angular profile was created by Fender designer Josh Hurst and first saw light of day as part of the Parallel Universe Collection in 2018. Since then, it has headed in both upscale and affordable directions within the Fender lineup—reaching the heights of master-built Custom Shop quality in the hands of Ron Thorn, and now in this much more egalitarian guise as the Player Plus Meteora HH.
