About This Listing

  • Vintage Style True Single Coil Strat Pickup
  • Alnico 2 Magnets, Flat Pole Pieces
  • Black Cover with Seymour Duncan Logo
  • Waxed Hookup Cable, "Keyed" Bottom Plate
  • Made in USA

The Seymour Duncan APS-2 Alnico 2 Pro is a flat pole piece, vintage-style, true single-coil Stratocaster pickup. Recommended for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock. Includes removable cover.

The APS-2 pickup combines the same coil design as the APS-1, with hand ground rod Alnico 2 magnets of equal length raised above the flatwork. The flat magnet pattern provides the balanced field necessary for an even response using today's strings (unwound "G") and flatter neck radii. The more even output response is noticed when bending strings. Like the APS-1, the pickup is clean and vintage-like and will distort "earlier" compared to similar Alnico 5 pickups like the SSL-2. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable and vintage-style "keyed" bottom plate.

For warmer toned ash, alder or basswood body instruments. Works with maple and rosewood fingerboards. The APS-2 is usually used in the neck and bridge positions, with the APS-2 RWRP Reverse Wound, Reverse Polarity pickup in the middle position for hum cancelling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch.

Players include Charlie Crowe / Brooks and Dunn, Albert Lee, Jerry Donahue, Danny Flowers, Alan Kendall / Bee Gees, Ben Mauro / Britney Spears.
