The Seymour Duncan APS-2 Alnico 2 Pro RWRP is a flat pole piece, vintage-style, true single-coil Stratocaster pickup designed for the middle position. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.
This version of the APS-2 pickup is Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity (RWRP) and is designed to be used in the middle position for hum cancelling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch, along with the standard wound APS-2 pickups in the neck and bridge positions.
The APS-2 pickup combines the same coil design as the APS-1, with hand ground rod Alnico 2 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 APS-1, the pickup is clean and vintage-like and will distort "earlier" compared to similar Alnico 5 pickups like the SSL-2. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate.
For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Charlie Crowe / Brooks & Dunn, Albert Lee, Jerry Donahue, Danny Flowers, Alan Kendall / Bee Gees, Ben Mauro / Britney Spears.
