The Seymour Duncan APS-1-CSET is a complete calibrated set of three vintage-correct true single-coil pickups, recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock. The neck and bridge pickups are standard wound, and the middle pickup is Reverse-Wound, Reverse-Polarity (RWRP) for hum cancelling.
The hand ground Alnico 2 magnets and moderate windings (Heavy Formvar wire) yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APS-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the SSL-1, the APS-1 has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate.
The APS-1 is designed for warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works with maple and rosewood fingerboards. The ASP-1 pickups are used in the bridge and neck positions, with the ASP-1 RWRP reverse wound, reverse polarity pickup in the middle position for hum cancelling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch. Includes removable covers. Note that if the covers are used, the B pole pieces will be slightly recessed into the covers.
Players include Marc Ford / Ben Harper and Black Crowes, Kevin Hunter / Shania Twain, Dale Oliver / Reba McIntire, Jeff Pevar / CPR.
