Seymour Duncan SSL-3 Hot for Strat Pickup for Stratocaster

Seymour Duncan

Sold out.


High output true single-coil for warm instruments. Recommended for country, pop, blues, classic rock and heavy rock.


This is the next step up from the SSL-5 Custom Staggered and SSL-6 with more sustain, fullness, and output - and less treble response. The raised flat Alnico 5 pole pieces are taller for a stronger and deeper magnetic field. Extra coil windings provide extra power making this pickup great for heavier music styles. White cover included.

Complete Setup

Calibrated set available with RW/RP middle pickup. Many players use an SSL-3 in the bridge position with vintage output pickups, like SSL-2's, in the neck and middle for tonal versatility.


For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or rosewood fingerboards.

Available Mods

Reverse wound, reverse polarity (RW/RP) middle pickups for hum canceling in positions "2" and "4" on the five-way switch.
