From the manufacturer:
Hot true single-coil pickup with increased output. Great for country pop, rockabilly, blues, jam, and classic rock.
Imagine taking the Vintage models and turning up the output. You get a fat and full punch in both the low frequencies and mid-range, yet it retains the muscular twang of the Vintage. The sensitive coil combined with custom length flat pole pieces provides more sustain. The rhythm pickup has a similarly designed high-output coil for full, clear sound and comes with a chrome-plated brass cover.
Available for both rhythm (neck) and lead (bridge) positions. Often used in the lead position and matched with a lower output rhythm pickup like the STR-1 Vintage.
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
Lead version available tapped for dual output levels.

Check out this clip to hear the amazing single coil sounds you can get with the Seymour Duncan Hot For Tele STR-2 neck pickup. This is a hot pickup with a very high output and a beautifully crisp, almost Strat-like sound. The tone is fat and punchy with accentuated low and mid-range frequencies -- without sacrificing the Tele twang, of course. Jump to 0:25 to hear how arpeggiated chords resonate effortlessly, with endless sustain and warmth for a lush sound. Add a bit of overdrive to the mix and this pickup will give you smooth bell-like lead tones with killer attack and sustain (2:16). The STR-2 brings vintage single coil tone to a whole new level with its high-output sound.
The player is Lyle Watt and he is playing a Fender Telecaster through a Cornford Roadhouse 30 amp.
