Pickups Model
The Custom Shop Slash “Appetite for Destruction” Les Paul is equipped with a pair of Seymour Duncan's new Signature Series Alnico II Pro Slash humbucking pickups, calibrated for depth and definition at the neck position and added power and sustain at the bridge position. These pickups replicate the glories of Gibson's original PAF humbucking pickups of the late ’50s and early ’60s, for a full, singing tone with outstanding clarity. Pickups
Magnet Material
The pickups are made with Alnico II bar magnets, just like many of the most prized original PAF humbuckers. Magnet Material
Tonal Characteristics
In the neck position, the Alnico II Pro Slash model is thick, creamy and vocal, with a rich, singing quality that excels at evocative rock and blues-rock lead work. In the bridge position, this pickup has more bite, aggression, and an enhanced treble response. Between them, they perfectly capture the tone that Slash himself has made famous.
Electronics
Volume and Tone Controls

These consist of high-quality 500k audio taper potentiometers, with .022 Sprague capacitors wired to the Tone controls for a smooth, musical roll-off of high frequencies. Tone and Volume Controls
