Seymour Duncan APH2 Slash Signature Set of Zebra Humbuckers
To get closer to the ultimate Slash tone, we recommend these signature pickups from Seymour Duncan. These medium output Alnico II humbuckers have balls, but won't oversaturate your amp leading to the rich, smooth, classic rock tone that Slash is famous for.
This page is for a set (one neck and one bridge humbucker) of Seymour Duncan APH-2 pickups with a "Zebra" finish.
Here's what Seymour Duncan say about the Slash Signature Pickup Set
Though he has dozens of amazing guitars, since 1986 Slash has used pretty much one very special single cutaway for all recording. The Alnico II Pro Slash was designed to give Slash's other single cutaway 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 single cutaway 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 single cutaway.
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 single cutaway, this pickup works well in any well-balanced humbucker-equipped guitar. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.
