PAF in a single coil format
starboard, 23.09.2017
Does what it says. My Stratocaster just became my number one guitar. Sure it is not a real PAF and yet not a true single coil when split either, but I rarely used the bridge single coil on my strat anyway. If I had to have only one guitar I would sell my Gibson Les Paul, as the Strat just got so perfect with these in the bridge.

Finally!
Erik7934, 13.01.2014
I've tried to like Strats all my life. I really have. I like the neck sound, but I just can't get the bridge pickup to sound anything else than harsh and brittle, especially with distortion. Tried so many times, but it just doesn't work for me. So I keep selling my Strats and then after a few years I get the urge and simply have to get one again...

I thought getting some hum-free single coils would help, and it sure did remove the most annoying part about single-coils (the hum), but I still couldn't get me to *really* like that single-coil tone.

So, I finally gave up on the single-coil bridge sound and got this single-coil sized P.A.F-type sound. Finally! This sound really works for me. It doesn't make the Strat sound like a Les Paul; the Strat sound is still there with a hint of twang. The "soul" of the Strat is not lost.

So I really dig this pickup. Now I'll just have to try to keep myself from wanting to find out what all those other single-coil sized humbuckers sound like...

I tried several pickups in my fender stratocaster. As every strat player probably already knows, the bridge position is always a little bit problematic. You often get a realy harsh and really tone. Especially when playing in higher frets it can actually hurt your ears. This also makes playing harder rock music on a fender stratocaster problematic.
With this pickup you get the best rock tone for a strat possible in my honest opinion. It has a lot of output and creates a smoothly distorted tone. Even when playing solos in higher frets the sound has enough depth to not hurt your ears.
I would recommend this pickup to everyone who has a strat and wants a nice distorted rock tone.

Absolutely brilliant
ISBM, 09.04.2016
I bought this for a Tanglewood Stratocaster copy that I have repaired for a friend. Once fully set up and given this beauty it has become a beast!

Firstly the fit is perfect; slots into the single coil space with no adjustment needed. Wiring up is easy, and if you are in doubt the Seymour Duncan website has all the info you could need.

Sound is great. The cleans are warmer than the JB Junior but the drive is just as good. For the more traditional strat sound, the coil split provides a much thinner sound giving this little beast all the tones you need.

The only negative point I have is that I have had to give this guitar back now! For the next strat I buy to keep, I will definitely put this in it!
