Summary

The ultimate overwound Strat single coil pickup, found in the bridge position of the David Gilmour Signature Fender Stratocaster.

Description

Mr. Gilmour needed a pumped up sound for his famous Black Strat, so Seymour wound what became the Custom Staggered. It has been, and continues to be, an honor to work with such a legend.The Custom Staggered is a special overwound single coil that strikes the perfect balance between increased output and bouncy Stratocaster tonal character. It will deliver bigger, fatter chords, and will cut through the mix more clearly than a traditional Strat pickup, without losing the sparkle that makes a Strat sound so unique. Single notes will be bold and loud, and your solos will really sing.Use in the bridge position with pair of Vintage Staggered strats in the neck & middle for the Gilmour style setup. Or use an SSL-5 in the neck and bridge with a SSL-5 RWRP in the middle for noiseless setup in the 2nd and 4th positions. The bobbins are built with hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, lacquered then wound and are 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.
