The Vintage Staggered SSL-1 7-string pickup is Seymour Duncan's most popular single-coil pickup for Strats. The hand-ground, Alnico V magnets and moderate windings with heavy, Formvar wire, yield a bright and punchy tone with vintage output. The Vintage Staggered SSL-1 pickup is perfect for guitarists who need accurate, traditional single-coil tone, especially with clean and mildly distorted amp settings. Compared to Seymour Duncan's APS-1, the SSL-1 has a more focused "bell" tone with a light bass response. Comes with waxed, cloth hookup cable and a vintage-style, "keyed" bottom plate.
Recommended for any guitarist who wants to marry a vintage sound with the new era of 7-stringed guitars. Complete with hand-ground, Alnico V magnets, the Vintage Staggered SSL-1 complements a humbucker like Seymour Duncan's SH-4 JB 7-string (sold separately) in the bridge position, along with a neck pickup like Seymour Duncan's SH-1n '59 7-string (sold separately). Add an all-tube overdrive like the Seymour Duncan SFX-11 Twin Tube Blue for the ultimate in tone.
