Seymour Duncan Pickups - It's all about tone!

Seymour Duncan's APH-1 Alnico II Pro has found its way into the axes of guitarists such as Slash (Guns 'N Roses and Velvet Revolver) to Queensryche's Michael Wilton. Perfect for any genre from jazz to blues to classic rock and anything in between, the APH-1 is characterized by a warm sound and moderate output. The APH-1 is equipped with four-conductor cable to facilitate a variety of pickup switching configurations. For tones that can be classic and modern at the same time, the APH-1 fits the bill!

Seymour Duncan Alnico II Pro APH-1 at a Glance:
  • Alnico II
  • Setup

Alnico II
The Alnico II 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. The APH-1 comes with four-conductor hookup cable.

The APH-1 is often used in both 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. The APH-1 works well with brighter toned instruments and responds well to maple and ebony fingerboards. It also works great with hollow- and semi-hollowbody guitars.

  • Humbucker

Great all around pickups

If you need a pickup that does it all then this is the one for you!! It cleans up very good with just a simple roll back on your volume knob. I use these pickups in my Gibson LesPaul with 50s wiring and wow!!! Great for country type stuff, blues, jazz, classic rock, and heavy metal It does all very well!!

Rich and Hearty!

This pick up has so improved the sound of my Epi ES335. It has always had a nice sound but the SD Alnico II has taken it to another level. This neck pick up has given me just the sort of rich, creamy tones I love to hear when I'm playing blues. Crank it up and it can get pretty gritty too. I just love the sound now - a truly "sound" investment!

One of the best

This is the harmonically richest PAF neck pup that I've ever used (and I've tried a few; in an SG and a Les Paul.) It has a deeper, yet very melodic tone and a clarity that other neck pickups seem to lack. I'd paired it with a Pearly Gates bridge in a fifty-year old, hand-made chambered Les Paul copy, which was awesome, and it currently resides (with the PG) in an Ibanez ART300. (Now THAT is a combination; better than the vintage LP. Since they don't make the 300 series any more, get yourself a 200 here at Sweetwater and swap the pups. You will not be disappointed.)
Music background: Still learnin' man.
