Beautiful surprise

Mikroton SBF, 23.12.2015
If you're looking for a new look, Seymour Duncan's Lipsticks are the perfect choice. The SLS-1 RW / RP is intended for the middle position, because it is "humbucked" with its reversed polarity and coil winding in conjunction with one of the two colleagues at the neck and bridge position, thus suppressing hum-induced hum - whereby the self-hum is already pleasantly small Is.

For a conversion project of a Harley Benton ST-20 HSS, I chose this pickup including the SLS-1N and a Gibson 490T humbucker on the one hand for optical reasons, but also to elicit a slightly different, and especially more balanced sound of the guitar. To put it bluntly, my experiment went on, the guitar became my sound queen ever since - the obendrein, thanks to the pickups, looks stunning. : D

The sound of the SLS-1 RW / RP does not match that of a typical single coil for the Strat, so if you expect the clear, wiry or even glassy sound of such a single coil, Because the SLS-1 RW / RP delivers a slightly warmer sound, but it remains very well defined and transparent, with a fine adjustment of the treble and the bass, and the bass is well rounded so that no nasty corners or edges are created. I think Seymour Duncan's lipsticks fit particularly well with Jazzsoli, but it's not quite as hard as the Rock, which is more focused on differentiated, multi-layered sound than on Wumms. This also corresponds to the output, which I would describe as a powerful vintage. Long story short: I love the sound of lipsticks, especially clean or crunch. Just great! A successful alternative to the usual single coils for Strat.

In addition, the unusual appearance, which is particularly good on a white perloid striking board. The workmanship is simply outstanding, no wax residues, perfect chrome plating of the outer cover, enough cable to handle even longer laying paths. Bolts and, quite vintage, rubber sockets are supplied. These would be for me now the only beauty error (durability), which is why I exchanged them for appropriate pressure springs.
An installation manual in English is included, together with a graphical representation of the wiring independent of the language skills. The installation was easy, the handling of the soldering iron once required.
The lipstick fits perfectly into the milling of the dashboard.

The cooperation with the version for the neck position is perfect, everything else would not be acceptable. Also with the Gibson humbucker the lipstick harmonizes, whereby I can also switch the humbucker by push / pull potentiometer, so that the output from the lipsticks is approached, so the sound becomes more balanced. The lipsticks and the 490T complement each other perfectly. The humbucker on the bridge position sounds rather biting and brilliant, but if necessary the SLS-1 RW / RP is somewhat softened.

In short: I am very satisfied with the SLS-1 RW / RP - optical as sound. People, try it out!
