Seymour Duncan – Slash Set - APH-2s Zebra Humbucker Pickups
The classic tone of Appetite for Destruction in a pickup.
When Slash was given the honor of having a Gibson Les Paul Signature model built, Seymour Duncan sent over the same Alnico 2 Pro humbuckers that he had used for decades. Turns out, the new guitars sounded noticeably different than the original. So they accepted the challenge to make him a new pickup that would make all of his new signature guitars sound just like the original AFD Les Paul. The result is the Slash Signature Model humbucker. Seymour Duncan used a different mag wire and winding spec, that, when combined with the alnico 2 bar magnet, provided exactly what was needed to push a stock Les Paul toward that familiar sustain, crunch, and midrange that was so characteristic of the tone of Slash’s original Derrig Les Paul copy. The Slash humbucker set is hand built in Santa Barbara the same way they built his originals in the 80s, using a nickel silver bottom plate with long mounting legs, single conductor braided lead wire, maple spacer, paper tape, and wax potting.
