When Slash was given the honour of having a Gibson Les Paul Signature model built, we sent over the same Alnico 2 Pro humbuckers that he has used for decades. Turns out, the new guitars sounded noticeably different than the original. So we 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. We 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 we 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.
