Overview

The Seymour Duncan APH-1n Alnico II Pro is a warm, moderate-output bridge position humbucker that's great for jazz, blues, classic rock and slide. Designed for brighter toned instruments the Alnico II Pro works especially well with maple and ebony fingerboards. Also works great with hollow and semi-hollow body guitars.

The Alnico 2 magnet and moderate windings yield a warm, sweet tone with more natural string vibration for great sustain. Classic rock players who get their distortion from the amp rather than the pickup love the APH-1. It allows them to back off the crunch and get beautiful clean tones with softer attack. Compared to the '59, the Alnico II Pro has a rounder sound with a spongier bass response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable and no logo.

The APH-1 is available neck and bridge positions. Or, in the neck with a higher output pickup like an SH-11 Custom Custom or SHPG-1b Pearly Gates for heavier rock or hotter blues sounds from the bridge position.

Players using Alnico II Pro humbuckers:
Slash - Velvet Revolver & Guns 'N Roses (neck & bridge)
Michael Wilton - Queensryche (bridge)
Jeff Tamelier - Tower of Power (neck)
Tim Mahoney - 311 (neck)
Troy Van Leeuwen - Queens of the Stone Age (neck)

awesome

Comments about Seymour Duncan APH-1b Alnico II Pro Bridge Humbucker:

i bought this pickup along with the matching neck pickup about a year ago. i have just recently gotten around to putting them in a couple of days ago and i LOVE them. they have really great tone. the bridge gives you a nasty bluesy gritty and good bitting tone just like slash and it can also give a warm and cosy tone. the neck is very versitile. it can give hard bluesy sounds and really soft warm sounds too. all in all it is one of the best pickups ive ever played with.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan APH-1b Alnico II Pro Bridge Humbucker:

      I replaced the Super 58 pickups in my Ibanez AS93 semihollow guitar with both the Alnico II Pro neck and bridge pickups. It brought the guitar to life. Haven't been able to put it down. I would highly recommend these and would buy them again. Plus these qualified for the 20% coupon!
