Perfection

By Josh Wiggs

Comments about Seymour Duncan California 50's Single Coil Set SSL-1:

These are simply the best Stratocaster pickups I've ever had the pleasure of finding. Not to say that the Custom Shop 69's or Texas Specials are bad but these California 50's are strong in all criteria. The bridge in particular blew me away by not being too bright. It was the perfect balance in all positions. The closest artist I would relate these to would be John Frusciante of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. If you're looking for "the" Fender tone then pick these up!

The cleanest vintage sound!

By jesus magana

Comments about Seymour Duncan California 50's Single Coil Set SSL-1:

Ive had this set for about a month now and im loving them! I have a MIM Strat (2010) with a maple neck and thought SD pickups would be too bright for the maple neck and it wasnt at all. Great balance in all positions (the rw/rp middle pickup is a plus as well). Compared to the Fender 57/62 PU i had before, the SD PU have less warmth to them but still have the same character. They have that punch to them too. I had a bit of trouble finding the sweet spot but i found that 4mm on the bass side and 3mm on the treble side on all 3 pickups(while holding down all the strings on the last fret) to be the sweet spot for my Strat in my opinion(a nice sparkle and volume). Great for classic rock, funk and blues. Also if you play alot of clean tones you wont find anything better. Of course you will have hum since they are Vintage pickups (modeled by Fenders first alnico 5 pickup) so if hum is a issue for you these PU are not for you but the tone is well worth the hum IMO. Its also a great replacement for a vintage pickup that no longer works in your Strat. What else can i say. These are awesome pickups. You wont regret them if you want that classic Strat tone!

      Comments about Seymour Duncan California 50's Single Coil Set SSL-1:

      If you like John Frusciante's sound, you love these pickups. Very 60's sounding, mellow, and sweet. If you're looking for Tex-Mex sounding pickups, these are on the opposite end of the spectrum. For BB king, John Mayer type licks they are very crisp, sweet, and bell like. If you like Jimi, you can definitely get some bold as love style sounds if you push your amp hard enough or add an overdrive pedal. I play through a Princeton reverb re-issue and a TS9 OD pedal. I will say most tone is your hands and attack, but these definitely make a difference if you're into the cleaner sound through a nice fender amp.
