Duncan's Vintage Staggered for Stratocaster pickups (SSL-1) use hand-ground alnico 5 rod magnets and heavy Formvar magnet wire with a special wind pattern to produce that bright, glassy, bell tone with all of the bounce and sparkle you would expect from the best Strat pickups from the '50s. The treble attack is crisp and immediate, while the low end remains articulate and focused. Chords ring out with clear note-to-note separation.

The three pickup combination includes a standard wound neck and bridge pickup, and a reverse-wind reverse-polarity (RWRP) middle pickup for noise cancellation in the in-between positions. Since 1978, Duncan has built all of their vintage Fender style single coil pickups with the right color and thickness of Forbon flatwork, along with the period correct magnet stagger. Each pickup comes complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wire and traditional keyed bottom plate. They hand file the flatwork, assemble, and lacquer the bobbin just as it was done during Fender's Golden Age.

The Vintage Staggered for Strat pickups are hand built in Santa Barbara, CA and are potted in Duncan's wax formulation for squeal free performance.
