Application 

Vintage-correct true single-coil for warm instruments. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.

Description 

This is the sound that gave birth to rock & roll: The classic, familiar sound of a vintage Stratocaster. This calibrated, SSL-1 Vintage Staggered set upgrades your Strat® or similar guitar to the same type of pickups used in the '50s.

Each SSL-1 pickup is a vintage-correct reproduction of an original Strat® pickup, using hand ground, sand cast, Alnico-5 magnets arranged in a vintage, right-handed, stagger pattern; hand-fabricated, lacquered, forbon bobbins; heavy Formvar magnet wire; and waxed cloth hookup cable. The materials and construction are as vintage correct as the sound: that sweet, familiar, bell tone with high-end bite and "quack" in the notch positions. Plus, you get hum-canceling in positions "2" and "4" due to the reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup. Great for blues, classic rock, and country.

The bridge model is designed for bridges with traditional string spacing of 1.925" or 48.9mm measured over the bridge pickup.

Complete setup 

Calibrated "California 50's" set available with RW/RP middle pickup

Guitars 

For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood finger-boards

Available mods 

Reverse wound, reverse polarity (RW/RP) middle pickups for hum canceling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch. Left-hand magnet stagger. Available in 7-string.

Players 

Chris Hicks, Kent Wells & Land Scott / Reba McEntire, Dan Schafer / Shania Twain, David Levitt / Alanis Morissette, Doug Pettibone / Lucinda Williams, Scott Henderson / Tribal Tech & Scott Henderson Trio, Jimmy Crespo.
