The SSL-1 pickups are designed after some of the best pickups from the '50s. Positioned at the neck and in the middle, the SSL-1s produce a bright and glassy tone that sounds absolutely stunning through a clean or crunchy amplifier. The middle SSL-1 features a reverse wound reverse polarity design that adds an authentic, vintage warmth with clarity and definition. Additionally, the TB-14 in the bridge position features quite a vintage voice with a warm and round tone, along with a hot output that's perfect for when you want to dig in with a bit more gain.
The VS50 tremolo bridge features a precision machined steel base plate with locked down ultra-smooth saddles, designed to ensure stable tuning and years of trouble free performance. Additionally, the two pivot knife edges and two pivot posts guarantee a perfect return to zero.
