    I Have To Agree With Andrew

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

    I've never been much of a SD pickup user in the past but I am now a believer in his products. I installed 3 of these pups in a strat copy guitar and now it oozes vintage tone and is dead quiet. I had trouble finding the RWRP pup for the middle position so I just went with all 3 the same and it still sounds great. I will only use these in my strat style guitars from now on and I have tried pretty much every single coil pickup out there that has ever been made. They ARE that good in my opinion. They foot the bill nicely for country and classic rock. If you are a metal player, they may not be for you. These have impressed me soooo much that I purchased the SD STK-T2 black bridge pickup to HOT ROD my VB Classic Vibe 50's Tele. Check out my STK-T2 pup review.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

      I wasn't sure how bad the hum would be on this single coil pickup but with the bridge pickup interacting with it there's hardly any hum at all. It's got this old 60s garage band twang to it that reminds me of the old Silvertone line, which were also equipped with a lipstick styled pickup. I like the raw unrefined sound that allows me to shape whatever tones I need for the deferent types music I play.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

      I love these pickups! I was looking for that vintage single coil tone without all the hum. I installed 3 of these in my Carvin Bolt strat copy along with some EVH 250K pots and new 5way switch and installed a mini switch instead of a second tone pot to get a little tele sound out of it if so desired and was very impressed. I also used a new jack with some good quality shielded wire and did my home work on shielding and grounding and this thing had little to no hum or feedback with it cranked up and standing right next to the amp. I've not had really any other experience with SD pickups, but I like these so much that I got the STK-T2 bridge pickup to put in my Tele. That will be happening soon. Way To Go SD. Well made, good quality sound and well shielded. I had tried 500k pots at first but ended up changing them out for the 250Ks. Not as trebly.

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

              I first heard these from Stevie Ray when he was given one by Charley Wirz from Dallas. I heard him play this guitar live twice and it always gave me chills. Life Without Out, the tone... Then a few years after Stevie passed, I happened to play a true Charley's Strat that was one of a very few that were made in tribute. I loved it. I just wasn't at the right place to own one. This is the next best thing. I am going to order a set very soon. I know exactly what guitar that I want to try them in too. Like Stevie's, it is a un-named Strat-like guitar. Go with the formula. Hope it turns out well! Thanks SD for offering these!

              By Andrew Di Vito

              from Chicago

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

              I put this pickup in the center position of my Strat, In the neck position I have A Seymour Duncan Jazz Humbucker, And in the bridge position I have A seymour Duncan Screamin Demon Humbucker. The sound of this pickup is awesome, vintage, one of a kind sound. When combined with the Jazz pickup on a Boss blues pedal-The tone and sustain is amazing. Highly recommend!!

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

              Theese pickups are amazing. There is absolutley no noise at all. The sound is beautiful. It is very glassy and jangly. in the 4th position I drool just hearing it. This is great for anything except metal, but i have a nice humbucker in the bridge for that.

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

              I bought 3 of these pickups and new pots and cap and some vintage cloth wire and the end result just blew me away. Position 3 sounds like a Ric! They still give me a classic Fender sound in position 1 and 2 and like I said 3 sounds like a Ric and 4 and 5 are really hot. They have that famous Fender "quack" too! Excellent pickups, Duncan did right with these!
