Summary
Warm and sweet vintage output bridge humbucker for Blues and Rock.

Description
The Alnico 2 Pro bridge humbucker uses the soft treble attack and low string pull of an alnico 2 bar magnet, combined with a special vintage output coil wind to create a warm, sweet tone that is smooth and full, with tons of natural sustain. The highs are articulate and smooth, and the lows are warm and spongy. This is a great pickup for all types of blues and rock.For over 25 years Slash has been the champion of this pickup and used them exclusively on Appetite for Destruction, which has gone on to become the biggest selling debut album of all time. Pair with the Alnico 2 Pro neck model for a perfectly matched setup.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Alnico 2 Pro humbucker uses an alnico 2 bar magnet, nickel silver bottom plate, 4-conductor lead wire for multiple wiring options, and is wax potted for squeal free operation.Though he has dozens of amazing guitars, since 1986 Slash has used pretty much one very special Les Paul for all recording. With the release of his new signature Les Paul, however, the Alnico II Pro Slash pickup was necessary to give Slash’s new Les Paul guitars (what he calls his “live guitars”) the same classic tone as this legendary instrument.

Crystal Clear Humbuckers
I can't tell you that these are the pickups for you, because every guitarist wants to have a particular sound and the particular pickups are key to that.  However, these are the model I use in my guitar:  cocobolo body, quilt maple top, maple neck, ebony fingerboard.  I wanted my pickups to accurately translate the warm and clear sound of my tonewoods into a clean and confortable sound.  These pickups do just that.  They are clear and bright in the bridge (no tinniness or overdrive) and clean and warm in the neck (no muddiness or dead spots).  I use these with 1 Meg pots and no tone pot with the ability to blend the sounds with a selector switch.  I can get a variety of creative tones with this configuration and all are clear and smooth.

I would recommend these to anyone who wants a clean tone that they can shape with effects or amplifiers after leaving the guitar.  And, these are Seymour Duncans, so you know they are going to last!
