great for 50s -60s style
jakecar, 12.01.2019
Great pickups for your strat. Really good if you are looking for that 50s - 60s sound. Work really well with distortion. But has too much output and didnt work that much for my sound. Word of advice no matter the quality of the pickups (which is really good in this situation) you will never know if you like them until they are on your guitar, because the sound will change slightly due to the different woods.

Seymour Duncan SSL-1 California
Robert9492, 13.01.2014
This matched set of SSL-1 with the added suffix 'California' is the perfect set if you are looking for a great vintage strat-tone to a great price. With vintage wiring (Wiring scheme supplied - I used a 0.47 cap) you will get a absolute wunderful woody tone from the neck pickup and very nice quack from the in-between positions. The bridge pup has a great bite to it without getting to sharp. I suspect that the middle pup is not reverse wound as both in-between positions is a little lower in volume. Summed up this is a very nice pickup set from seymour Duncan that should upgrade about any stratocaster-type guitar to a vintage tone machine. Great for surf rock!

Excellent product!
03.05.2016
Have had these installed in my Strat for the past few months and I am very happy with them. Compared to my stock Fender pickups these have more clarity and sparkle. Tonally I can achieve sounds remninissant of John Frusciante, Rory Gallagher, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Niall Rodgers etc. with a few amp tweaks (Blues Jr.).

Other than that there isn't much to say - great pickups!
