The Seymour Duncan SSL-2 is a flat pole piece, vintage-voiced, true single-coil for warm Stratocaster instruments. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.
This version of the SSL-2 pickup is Reverse-Wound, Reverse-Polarity (RWRP) for hum cancelling in the middle position using positions 2 and 4 of a five way switch.
This pickup combines the same vintage coil design as the SSL-1, with hand ground rod Alnico 5 magnets of equal length raised above the flatwork. The flat magnet pattern provides the balanced field necessary for an even response using today's strings (unwound "G") and flatter neck radii. The more even output response is noticed when bending strings. Like the SSL-1, the pickup is clean and vintage-like with a bright "bell" tone that has a sharper attack characteristic compared to the APS-2. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate.
For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards. Can be used with or without included cover.
Players include Nick Lashley / Alanis Morissette & Mick Jagger, Marty Friedman / Megadeth, Stephen Carpenter / Deftones, Coleman Mellett / Chuck Mangione Group.
