Welcome to the jungle!
Ever wanted the same amount of sustain, response and uncompromising tone as the man in the tight leather trouser? With the APH-2s Alnico II Pro Slash Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup Set, all you need now is the top hat!
Slash wanted a pickup set that would replicate the same Les Paul that he's been using to record since the mid 1980's and so developed one. Wound with just enough boosted output, this pickup set will push a stock Les Paul closer to the legendary sustain and gnarley crunch that we have all come to know and love about Slash's sound.
Here's what Seymour Duncan say about the APH-1N ALNC II PRO ZebraHumbucker:
Though he has dozens of amazing guitars, since 1986 Slash has used pretty much one very special Les Paul for all recording. The Alnico II Pro Slash was designed to give Slash's other Les Paul guitars- what he calls his "live guitars"-the exact tone of this legendary instrument.
Warm, moderate output humbucker. Recommended for jazz, blues, and classic rock.
Like the standard APH-1 Alnico II Pro, this pickup uses an Alnico 2 magnet. However, the Slash model is wound with just enough boosted output to push a stock Les Paul toward the sweet sustain and rude crunch that characterizes Slash's sound as heard on hundreds of tracks. In addition, it comes with some of the same appointments found on the Seymour Duncan pickups in Slash's '86 recording axe, including single-conductor cable, long-legged bottom plate, and wooden spacer. For the true fan, or the player who wants to capture Slash's recorded tone, this pickup is a critical part of the tone chain. This is same pickup found in the newest Gibson® Slash model Les Paul.
The Slash aficionado will use a pair of these pickups to capture that unmistakable tone. This pickup matches well with the SFX-11 Twin Tube Blue all-tube overdrive-distortion stompbox for singing leads and authoritative chording.
While designed for use in a Les Paul, this pickup works well in any well-balanced humbucker-equipped guitar. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.
Available in black, zebra, or reverse zebra. The infamous Slash recording guitar has a reverse zebra pickup in the bridge position and a zebra pickup in the neck position. This pickup is available individually or in the zebra/reverse zebra set.
