Single coil pickups were the first types of guitar pickups created, yet despite countless new technologies, the design still holds weight to this day. A single coil pickup is a relatively simple design that uses one of a variety of magnets wrapped many times in thin copper wire. Using different magnets or a different amount of winds, as well as varying the placement of the pickup in the guitar, vastly different tones can be achieved.
Single coil pickups generally have a clean and clear sound, with a lot of high end and present yet loose low end. They can be twangy and bright and also very responsive to pick attack. Blues and country players tend to be right at home on a single coil equipped guitar, but they are not limited to these genres in the slightest.
