        Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

        I wasn't sure how bad the hum would be on this single coil pickup but with the bridge pickup interacting with it there's hardly any hum at all. It's got this old 60s garage band twang to it that reminds me of the old Silvertone line, which were also equipped with a lipstick styled pickup. I like the raw unrefined sound that allows me to shape whatever tones I need for the deferent types music I play.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

        I love these pickups! I was looking for that vintage single coil tone without all the hum. I installed 3 of these in my Carvin Bolt strat copy along with some EVH 250K pots and new 5way switch and installed a mini switch instead of a second tone pot to get a little tele sound out of it if so desired and was very impressed. I also used a new jack with some good quality shielded wire and did my home work on shielding and grounding and this thing had little to no hum or feedback with it cranked up and standing right next to the amp. I've not had really any other experience with SD pickups, but I like these so much that I got the STK-T2 bridge pickup to put in my Tele. That will be happening soon. Way To Go SD. Well made, good quality sound and well shielded. I had tried 500k pots at first but ended up changing them out for the 250Ks. Not as trebly.

                Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

                I first heard these from Stevie Ray when he was given one by Charley Wirz from Dallas. I heard him play this guitar live twice and it always gave me chills. Life Without Out, the tone... Then a few years after Stevie passed, I happened to play a true Charley's Strat that was one of a very few that were made in tribute. I loved it. I just wasn't at the right place to own one. This is the next best thing. I am going to order a set very soon. I know exactly what guitar that I want to try them in too. Like Stevie's, it is a un-named Strat-like guitar. Go with the formula. Hope it turns out well! Thanks SD for offering these!

                Theese pickups are amazing. There is absolutley no noise at all. The sound is beautiful. It is very glassy and jangly. in the 4th position I drool just hearing it. This is great for anything except metal, but i have a nice humbucker in the bridge for that.

                Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

                I bought 3 of these pickups and new pots and cap and some vintage cloth wire and the end result just blew me away. Position 3 sounds like a Ric! They still give me a classic Fender sound in position 1 and 2 and like I said 3 sounds like a Ric and 4 and 5 are really hot. They have that famous Fender "quack" too! Excellent pickups, Duncan did right with these!

                Comments about Seymour Duncan SLS-1 Lipstick Tube Guitar Pickup:

                I put three of these in a Strat and what a tone monster. In position 3 it almost sounds like a Ric! They growl, snarl or go very clean, I couldn't be happier with these pickups. I can see a mid-boost kit in the future.

                I have this in a neck , with a SH-4 HB at the bridge on a Schecter 006. This pick up is amazing! Both are strong pick ups, and make a hard team to beat! The lip stick is awesome. Great "twang" and bright brights....even when you lay on some chrunch, it stays great sounding. At times you may forget you are only playing on a single coil, it is that deep!
