Seymour Duncan

collapse expand iconDescription

David Gilmour needed a pumped-up sound for his famous Black Strat, so Seymour Duncan wound what would become the Custom Staggered medium-output Stratocaster pickup. The Custom Staggered is a special overwound single-coil that strikes a great balance between increased output and classic Stratocaster tonal character to deliver bigger, fatter chords and to cut through the mix more clearly than a traditional Strat pickup. Single notes are bold and loud, and solos truly sing. Use in the bridge position with a pair of Vintage Staggered Strat pickups in the neck and middle for the Gilmour-approved setup. Use a Custom Staggered RWRP in the middle for noiseless setup in positions 2 and 4.
