High output true single-coil. Recommended for blues, classic rock, garage, heavy rock, classic metal and nu-metal. More than twice the power of a traditional single-coil. The result is a fat, punchy sound; similar to a P-90. It’s clean at lower volumes and screamin’ when cranked. The hand polished, quarter-inch diameter magnets are matched with a powerful coil winding to deliver great sustain, making this one of our most popular single-coil pickups. Does not use a cover. Calibrated set available with RW/RP middle pickup. Many players use an SSL-4 in the bridge position with vintage output pickups, like SSL-2’s, in the neck and middle for tonal versatility. For any acoustically balanced Strat®. Works especially well with rosewood fingerboards. Players - Melle Vasquez / Nancy Sinatra, Whitey Kirst / Iggy Pop, Buzz Feiten, Chris Caffery / Savatage & Transyberian Orchestra, Bruce Butler / Motograter.
