Seymour Duncan SSL-5 Bridge
High output true single-coil for warm instruments. Perfect for Texas blues rock, classic rock and heavy rock. Though it looks like the SSL-1 and has that distinct vintage tone, the SSL-5's over-wound coil yields higher output, more sustain and great harmonics. The result is a pickup that rocks hard and cuts through the mix, but cleans up nicely when you back off the volume. Includes white cover.
Mr. Gilmour needed a pumped up sound for his famous Black Strat, so Seymour wound what became the SSL-5 Custom Staggered. It has been, and continues to be, an honor to work with such a legend. The Custom Staggered is a special overwound single coil that strikes the perfect balance between increased output and bouncy Stratocaster tonal character. It will deliver bigger, fatter chords, and will cut through the mix more clearly than a traditional Strat pickup, without losing the sparkle that makes a Strat sound so unique. Single notes will be bold and loud, and your solos will really sing. Use in the bridge position with pair of SSL-1 Vintage Staggered pickups in the neck & middle for the Gilmour style setup.
Seymour Duncan SSL-1 Neck and Middle
Our SSL-1 Vintage Staggered for Stratocaster uses hand ground Alnico 5 rod magnets and heavy Formvar magnet wire with a special wind pattern to produce that bright, glassy, bell tone with all of the bounce and sparkle youd expect from the best 50's Strat pickups. The treble attack is crisp and immediate, while the low end remains articulate and focused. Chords ring out with clear note to note separation. Use a full set for a truly vintage vibe, or use in the neck & middle with an SSL-5 Custom Staggered in the bridge for a more rocking setup. Since 1978, we've been building all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups just as it was done in Fenders Golden age. We start with the right color and thickness of Forbon flatwork, with the traditional keyed bottom plate. Then we hand file the flatwork, assemble with hand ground magnets, and lacquer the bobbin. After winding, each pickup is wax potted to reduce unwanted squeal, and comes with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires and traditional keyed bottom plate.
