The Seymour Duncan SSL-5 CSET is a calibrated set of three SSL-5 pickups for Stratocaster guitars. The middle pickup is Reverse-Wound, Reverse-Polarity (RWRP). The SSL-5 Custom Staggered Strat Pickup is a high output true single-coil for warm instruments. Perfect for Texas blues rock, classic rock and heavy rock.
Though it looks like the SSL-1 and has that distinct vintage tone, the SSL-5's over-wound coil yields higher output, more sustain and great harmonics. The result is a pickup that rocks hard and cuts through the mix, but cleans up nicely when you back off the volume. Includes white cover.
Includes bridge, middle and neck pickups. Use the SSL-5 Reverse Wound, Reverse Polarity (RWRP) pickup in the middle for hum canceling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch, with the SSL-5 standard wound pickups in the neck and bridge positions. For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or rosewood fingerboards.
Players include Nick Lashley / Alanis Morissette & Mick Jagger, Rickey Medlocke & Mike Estes / Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yogi / Wallflowers.
