This Seymour Duncan SSL-1 California '50s set consists of vintage-correct true single-coils, designed for warm instruments. These pickups are recommended for country, pop, surf, blues, rockabilly, ska and classic rock.

The Classic Strat® Sound
That classic, familiar sound of a vintage Stratocaster, the one that gave birth to rock & roll, that's what you can get out of this calibrated set, providing your Strat® with the same type of pickups used in the '50s.
The set boasts vintage-correct reproductions of the original Strat® pickup. Hand ground, sand cast, Alnico-5 magnets are arranged in a vintage, right-handed, stagger pattern. It has hand-fabricated, lacquered, forbon bobbins, heavy Formvar magnet wire and a waxed cloth hookup cable. The SSL-1 California '50s set's construction and materials are just as vintage correct as the sound. The familiar Strat sound is characterised by its sweet bell tone with high-end bite and "quack" in the notch positions. Positions "2" and "4" boast hum-canceling thanks to the reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup.
Suitable for Warmer Toned Ash, Alder or Basswood Body Instruments
This pickup set is designed for warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments and works especially well with rosewood finger-boards.
Bridge Position Designed for Traditional String Spacing
The bridge pickup is designed for bridges with traditional string spacing of 1.925" or 48.9mm measured over the bridge pickup.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.
This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
