Vintage-correct true single-coil for warm instruments. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.
Our most popular single-coil for Strat. The hand-ground Alnico 5 magnetsand moderate windings (Heavy Formvar wire) yield a bright and punchy tone with vintage output. Perfect for players who need accurate traditional single-coil tone, especially with clean and mildly distortede amp settings. Compared to the APS-1, the SSL-1 has a more focused “bell” tone with a light bass response. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style “keyed” bottom plate.
Calibrated “California 50’s” set available with RW/RP middle pickup
For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood finger-boards
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.
Magnet type: alnico 5 rods, D.C. Resistance 6.5k
