The Seymour Duncan STL-1 Vintage '54 Lead (bridge) Pickup. FREE shipping in the USA!

Application
Vintage-correct reproduction of 1954 Tele® lead pickup. Perfect for traditional country, country pop, chicken pickin', rockabilly, blues, and blues-rock.

Description
Like the 1954 originals, this pickup features standard .187" diameter Alnico 5 pole pieces, raised for the "D" and "G" strings. The result is a twangy, bright and biting sound. Compared the STL-1b, the Vintage '54 has slightly reduced output and a bright and biting high-end detail. Comes with waxed cloth hookup cable.

Complete setup
Available in lead (bridge) position only. The STR-1 is the correct match in the rhythm (neck) position.

Guitars
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.

About the Guitars: We used all brand new Fender American made '52 with a light-weight ash body and a maple fingerboard and a fresh set of American Flyer 10-46 gauge strings. We kept the pickup-to-string heights consistent between each change of pickups.

About the Amps: We employed the "highest common denominator" philosophy in our amp selection. For clean tones, we used a silverface Fender Super Reverb with stock 4x10 "blue frame" speakers. We kept the Bright Switch "On" throughout. For crunch tones, we used a well-worn Marshall JCM 800 50 watt master volume head through a new Marshall 1960A Celestion®-loaded 4x12 cabinet. We plugged into the High output. With both amps we close miked straight-on with SM-57s through a Soundcraft Spirit Folio Mixer.
