FREE fitting to your instrument.
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.
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.
The 7-string model comes with a black cover and we use a special pole stagger for improved string balance and sustain.
For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or rosewood fingerboards.
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. Available in 7-string.

At Seymour Duncan, we LOVE pickups. We’re continually designing, and voicing new models for ourselves and our customers. Over the years, that’s a lot of pickups. To help you choose the perfect pickup for you and your guitar, use our Pickup Selector, listen to our many sound samples and videos, or ask the most passionate and knowledgable community of pickup connoisures on our Forum.
Even so, we know it can be hard to pick the perfect pickup, so since 1979, way back when there were just written descriptions, our remedy has been the 21 Day Real World Exchange.
Buy the pickups you think will be the best and go crazy: play it, feel it, and whatever else you can legally do! If its not right for you don’t sweat it. Just give us a call, let us know what you liked and didn’t like, and well work together to swap the pickup for something that will blow your mind.
