Quarter inch diameter rod magnets and an overwound coil create our most explosive sounding Strat single coil with a meaner, fatter tone.
With more than twice the power of a traditional Stratocaster single-coil, the Quarter Pound Flat has a fat, punchy tone with plenty of top end sparkle. The hand polished, diameter alnico 5 magnets are matched with a larger, more powerful coil winding to deliver sparkly midrange harmonics, great sustain, and big, full chords, making this one of our most popular single-coil pickups. Use an SSL-4 in the neck and bridge position, with an SSL-4 RWRP in the middle for a complete set.The bobbins are hand built, and 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.
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.
