Vintage Flat Strat® model SSL-2
Quantity in Basket:
Same as the Vintage Staggered, but with flat magnets. This creates a different magnetic field, producing more midrange. Some players like the tone of the staggered magnet pickups for the Neck and Middle positions, and flat magnets for the Bridge position. The flat magnets allow for the bridge pickup to be set closer to the strings. Robert Cray uses this type of configuration in his autograph model Stratocaster®.
