(From the Seymour Duncan website)


High output true single-coil for warm instruments. Perfect for Texas blues rock, classic rock and heavy rock.


Though it looks like the SSL-1 and has that distinct vintage tone, the SSL-5's over-wound coil yields higher output, more sustain and great harmonics. The result is a pickup that rocks hard and cuts through the mix, but cleans up nicely when you back off the volume. Includes white cover.


Complete setup
Calibrated set available with RW/RP middle pickup. Many players use an SSL-5 in the bridge position with vintage output pickups, like SSL-1's, in the neck and middle for tonal versatility.


For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or 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. Tapped version for dual output levels. Left-hand magnet stagger.

David Gilmour - SSL5
This is the same pick-up as utilized in the Fender Custom Shop "Gilmour" signiture model. It is a GREAT sounding pick-up, check out David in either of his current DVD releases (or search on YouTube). I am in the process of upgrading my two additional Strats with the SSL5 in the bridge position. To me, there is no other alternative. I have never been happier with a Single Coil pick-up, then I have been with this one. Very clear and powerful; again, reference some of the availble clips of David.
