Our most popular single-coil for Strat® yields a bright and punchy tone with vintage output. Perfect for players who need accurate traditional single-coil tone with a more focused “bell” tone with a tighter bass response.

Seymour Duncan SSL-1 Vintage Staggared (Strat) Pickup - SSL-1 An exact replica of the original Alnico V Stratocaster® pickups. The same type of magnet wire is used, as well as the same number of coil windings. The staggered rod magnets are hand-ground, then aged by the exclusive Dun-Aged™ process, lacquered bobbins and cloth-braid hookup wire complete the vintage look. Every detail is included to duplicate the bell-like tone and the high-end bite that made the vintage Strat® famous.
