NOTE. For left handed guitars with single coils it is best to use a rail-type pickup if not a proper left handed staggered or flat stagger pickup. Rail-type pickus are interchangeable between left and right handed guitars. 


From DImarzio: "The Super Distortion® S offers the performance of the famous Super Distortion® in a humbucking Strat® bridge direct replacement-size pickup. We've built in the same blend of power and tone that made the original Super Distortion® the worldwide standard for high-output humbuckers. We also tweaked the sound to take into account the fact that the Super Distortion® S will be installed in the classic slanted bridge position. The new model has 4-conductor wiring for parallel humbucking and split-coil modes.


Since the Super Distortion® S will usually be installed in the slanted bridge position of a 25 ½” scale guitar, we've adjusted the specs of the original Super Distortion® humbuckers to compensate. Treble response is smoother, and bass response is tighter. Because of their narrow magnetic fields, dual-blade Strat® replacements are not generally well-known for their splitting ability. However, the Super Distortion® S has a very good single-coil sound in split mode that isn't brittle or weak."
