The Classic Strat® Sound
That classic, familiar sound of a vintage Stratocaster, the one that gave birth to rock & roll, that's what you can get out of this calibrated set, providing your Strat® with the same type of pickups used in the '50s.
The set boasts vintage-correct reproductions of the original Strat® pickup. Hand ground, sand cast, Alnico-5 magnets are arranged in a vintage, right-handed, stagger pattern. It has hand-fabricated, lacquered, forbon bobbins, heavy Formvar magnet wire and a waxed cloth hookup cable. The SSL-1 California '50s set's construction and materials are just as vintage correct as the sound. The familiar Strat sound is characterised by its sweet bell tone with high-end bite and "quack" in the notch positions. Positions "2" and "4" boast hum-canceling thanks to the reverse wound, reverse polarity middle pickup.
Suitable for Warmer Toned Ash, Alder or Basswood Body Instruments
This pickup set is designed for warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments and works especially well with rosewood finger-boards.
Bridge Position Designed for Traditional String Spacing
The bridge pickup is designed for bridges with traditional string spacing of 1.925" or 48.9mm measured over the bridge pickup.
