Seymour Duncan APH-2n Alnico II Pro Slash Humbucker Electric Guitar Neck Pickup

The Seymour Duncan APH-2n Alnico II Pro Slash Humbucker Electric Guitar Pickup honors the guitar hero with his first signature pickup. The Slash neck pickup's tone is familiar to all who have heard Slash's recorded tone. 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 his legendary instrument.

Like the standard APH-1 Alnico II Pro, which Slash has used for years, the Slash neck humbucker uses an Alnico II magnet. However, the Alnico II Pro Slash pickup 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. In addition, the Seymour Duncan APH-2n pickup boasts some of the same appointments found on the Duncan pickups seen in Slash's '86 recording axe: a single-conductor cable, a long-legged bottom plate, and a wooden spacer. For true fans, or for players who want to capture Slash's recorded tone, this pickup is a critical part of the tone chain. The Seymour Duncan APH-2n Alnico II is same pickup found in the newest Gibson Slash model Les Paul guitar.

With the ubiquitous top hat and shades, mop of black curls obscuring his face, and a blazing electric guitar tone blasting through a wall of amps, Slash epitomizes the very reasons we first air-strummed a low-slung tennis racquet in the privacy of our bedroom. For over 3 decades he has relied on Seymour Duncan pickups for his guitar tone.

Applications:
Warm, moderate-output humbucker. Recommended for jazz, blues, and classic rock.

Complete setup:
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 (sold separately) for singing leads and authoritative chording.

Guitars:
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.

The Alnico II Pro Slash is hand built in Seymour Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop and includes all mounting hardware. Recommended for the neck position.
