Seymour Duncan APH-1n Alnico II Pro Humbucker Nickel Cover Neck Guitar Pickup
The Seymour Duncan APH-1n Alnico II Pro is a warm, moderate-output neck position humbucker that's great for jazz, blues, classic rock and slide. Designed for brighter toned instruments the Alnico II Pro works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.
The Alnico 2 magnet and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Classic rock players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APH-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the '59, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable and no logo.
Oftenthe APH-1 is used in both neck and bridge positions. Or, in the neckwith a higher output pickup like an SH-11 Custom Custom or SHPG-1bPearly Gates for heavier rock or hotter blues sounds from the bridgeposition.
