The ultimate overwound Strat single coil pickup, found in the bridge position of the David Gilmour Signature Fender Stratocaster.

Mr. Gilmour needed a pumped up sound for his famous Black Strat, so Seymour wound what became the Custom Staggered. It has been, and continues to be, an honor to work with such a legend.The Custom Staggered is a special overwound single coil that strikes the perfect balance between increased output and bouncy Stratocaster tonal character. It will deliver bigger, fatter chords, and will cut through the mix more clearly than a traditional Strat pickup, without losing the sparkle that makes a Strat sound so unique. Single notes will be bold and loud, and your solos will really sing.Use in the bridge position with pair of Vintage Staggered strats in the neck & middle for the Gilmour style setup. Or use an SSL-5 in the neck and bridge with a SSL-5 RWRP in the middle for noiseless setup in the 2nd and 4th positions. The bobbins are built with hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, lacquered then wound and are wax potted for squeal free performance. We use modern oval Forbon flatwork (non-triangular) which enables this pickup to fit into any guitar that is routed for single coils.

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.
