    Default Slash model pups

    Hi guys, new to this site & was wondering if Seymour Duncan makes a Slash model pup with an Alnico 5 magnet? If not can they be custom ordered or is there something very similar with the 5?
    Thanks,
    Jerry

    welcome to the forum!

    the aph-2 slash pups have alnico 2 magnets. slash used to use the aph-1 which also have alnico 2 magnets. the aph-1 and jazz pups are the same coils but the sh2 jazz has alnico 5 magnets. there is no "slash" model with a5 pups. you could buy a set of aph-2 slash pups and swap a5 magnets in

    If you didn't want to do the swap yourself, you probably could order it as a "shop floor custom" to avoid paying CustomShop prices.
    Slash bridge is a really sweet pickup but I've often wished I could split mine. Too bad they don't make a 4-wire version.

    If you like the Slash and also like the extra ‘oomph’ of the A5 magnet, consider The Whole Lotta’ Humbucker / SH-18, TB-18. Just dropped one in a hard-ash strat with a maple neck and a 2-point Hipshot trem. I’m all done swapping pickups.

    A Jazz bridge would come very close.

    To read what options are covered under the Shop Floor Custom program (and to learn what this program actually is), check this out.

    That's handy. My Slash set was already in the guitar when I bought it but if ordering a set new I'd definitely request 4-wire.

    There's nothing on the list about getting an A5 magnet instead of A2, but I think the OP probably could get that as a shop floor custom rather than custom shop.
