A high output, true single-coil pickup that's ideal for a distinct vintage tone heard in blues rock, classic rock, and heavy rock.
The Seymour Duncan SSl-5 Custom Staggered Single-Coil Bridge Pickup is a high output, true single-coil electric guitar pickup for warm instruments. it's a perfect match for Texas blues rock, classic rock, and heavy rock.
Though the SSL-5 looks like the Seymour Duncan 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.
Many players use an Seymour Duncan SSL-5 pickup in the bridge position with vintage output pickups, like SSL-1's, in the neck and middle for tonal versatility.
For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or rosewood fingerboards.
