Seymour Duncan APH-2s Alnico II Pro Slash Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup Set
Seymour Duncan APH-2s Alnico II Pro SlashHumbucker Electric Guitar Pickup Set
A warm, moderate-output humbuckerpickup set designed to produce Slash's unique recorded guitar tone.
TheSeymour Duncan APH-2s Alnico II Pro Slash Humbucker Electric GuitarPickup Set honors guitar hero Slash with his first signature pickups.The tone of this pickup set will be familiar to anyone who has heardSlash's recorded tone. Though he has dozens of amazing guitars, since1986 Slash has pretty much used one very special Les Paul for all ofhis recordings. The Alnico II Pro Slash was designed to give Slash'sother Les Paul guitars (what he calls his "live guitars") the exacttone of his legendary guitar.
Like the standard APH-1 Alnico II Pro, which Slash has used for years,the Slash APH-2 set uses Alnico 2 magnets. However, the Alnico II ProSlash is wound with just enough boosted output to push a stock Les Paultoward the sweet sustain and rude crunch that characterize Slash'ssound. In addition, Seymour Duncan enhances the APH-2 pickups with someof the same appointments found on the Duncan pickups seen in Slash's'86 recording axe: a single-conductor cable, a long-legged bottomplate, and a wooden spacer. For true fans, or for players who want tocapture Slash's recorded tone, these Seymour Duncan pickups are acritical part of the tone chain. These are same pickups found in thenewest Gibson Slash model Les Paul guitar.
With the ubiquitous top hat and shades, a mop ofblack curls obscuring his face, and a blazing electric guitar toneblasting through a wall of amps, Slash epitomizes the very reasons wefirst air-strummed a low-slung tennis racquet in the privacy of ourbedroom. For over 3 decades Slash has relied on Seymour Duncan pickupsfor his guitar tone.
Warm, moderate-output humbucker. Recommended for jazz, blues, andclassic rock.
The Slash aficionado will use a pair of these pickups to capture thatunmistakable tone. This pickup matches well with the SFX-11 Twin TubeBlue all-tube overdrive-distortion stompbox (sold separately) forsinging leads and authoritative chording.
While designed for use in a Les Paul, this pickup works well in anywell-balanced humbucker-equipped guitar. Also works great with hollowand semi-hollow body guitars.
The Alnico II Pro Slash is hand built in Seymour Duncan's SantaBarbara, California workshop and includes all mounting hardware.Recommended for the neck and bridge position.
