application: Vintage-correct true single-coil for warm instruments. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.
description: Our most popular single-coil for Strat8. The hand-ground Alnico 5 magnets and moderate windings (Heavy Formvar8 wire) yield a bright and punchy tone with vintage output. Perfect for players who need accurate traditional single-coil tone, especially with c lean and mildly distorted amp settings. Compared to the APS-1, the SSL-1 has a more focused ?bell? tone with a tighter bass response. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style ?keyed? bottom plate.
complete setup: Calibrated ?California 50?s? set available with RW/RP middle pickup.
guitars: For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards.
available mods: Reverse wound, reverse polarity (RW/RP) middle pickups for hum canceling in positions ?2? and ?4? on the five-way switch. Left-hand magnet stagger.
players: Chris Hicks, Kent Wells & Lang Scott / Reba McEntire, Dan Schafer / Shania Twain, David Levitt / Alanis Morissette, Doug Pettibone / Lucinda Williams, Scott Henderson / Tribal Tech & Scott Henderson Trio, Jimmy Crespo.
