What you'd expect from Seymour Duncan
Martin4035, 28.01.2014
The usual excellent service on this item from Thomann...quick and well packed. Boring but true! Order from them with confidence.
Pickups are a very personal subjective thing, but here's my opinion on this: very good sound, and a safe purchase. Seymour Duncan were once the big thing, with Dimarzio, in aftermarket pickups, but time moves on and the place is now awash with top end, boutique pickups makers. All of them claim to have found the new 'pixie-dust' that makes pickups do wonderful things to your tone.
Indeed, they virtually all make excellent sounding pickups. In the midst of this, Seymour Duncan have been a bit left-behind, but lets not forget they have many, many years of experience doing this pickup thing!
The quality of this pickup was like all their pickups; top class. Fitting is as easy as your skill level, but there's loads of help on the net and Seymour Duncanhave a forum to provide support as well as the excellent support on their website.
Once in there were no surprises. The improvement over the standard Mexican Strat pickup was marked. Sweet top end, warm bass and a slight mid scoop. Not overly bright or aggressive. Nice for cleans and overdrive alike.
It's been fitted for several months now with no problems, and I have no doubt it will be fitted for many years.
Recommended.

Neck position
Soilac, 10.06.2019
I bought this pickup for the neck position of my strat. I have combined it with SSL1/RW in the middle and a splittable Jb Jr at the bridge. It's warmer than SSL and has that bluesy tone I was looking for for the neck position.
