Description

The Seymour Duncan SSL-1 California 50s Strat Single Coil Pickup Set features 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 you'd expect from the best 50s 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. This three pickup set includes a standard wound neck and bridge pickup and a reverse wound reverse polarity (RWRP) middle pickup for hum-cancelling in positions 2 and 4 of a stratocaster. Since 1978 Seymour Duncan has been building all their vintage Fender style single coil pickups just as it was done in Fenders Golden age, starting with the right colour and thickness of Forbon flatwork, with the traditional keyed bottom plate, they hand file the flatwork and assemble with hand ground magnets and then 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.
