SSL-1 RWRP Vintage Staggered – Seymour Duncan Strat pickup. For the perfect noiseless 2 & 4 Stratocaster quack, use this reverse wound, reverse polarity, middle position version of the classic SSL-1 Strat pickup.
From Seymour Duncan: The Vintage Staggered RWRP for Stratocaster uses the same hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets and heavy Formvar magnet wire as our standard version, but is made reverse wound, reverse polarity, RWRP. When combined with the neck or bridge pickups, it will produce that classic in-between Strat quack, but with none of the traditional single coil hum. On its own, this pickup will give you the same bright, crisp tone that you get from the standard wound model. Combine with an SSL-1 in the neck and bridge for a complete vintage set. Or combine with a higher output bridge model such as a SSL-5 for more bite. Built the same way since 1978, we use the proper colour and thickness of Forbon flatwork with all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups. Along with the period correct magnet stagger, this pickup comes complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires and traditional keyed bottom plate. We hand file the flatwork, assemble, and lacquer the bobbin just as it was done during Fenders Golden Age. More info from Seymore Duncan
