Does anyone have these pickups and do they sound better than stock Epi's?

I am thinking of picking up a used set for a future project

Yes, In my opinion they do. But its also aided by upgraded pots, and caps.

I have the regular SD Alnico Pro's in my Standard and the Slash Signature set in my Custom, to me they sound better then stock.

As noted above, upgrading the electronics and wiring will usually be a nice improvement to tone as well.

To the OP - 4 weeks ago my stock Epi LP std sounded better than my Ibanez RGR421 (mohogany body/maple cap). Then I put a Hotrodded humbucker set in my Ibanez and it now sounds much better than my LP. :) I'll fix that though when my SD Vintage Blues come in! :naughty:


1000 posts for me!! :dude:

they are literally exactly the same they just stuck slashes name on them to sell more :thumb: :slash:

They are not exactly the same. The Slash set is wound a little hotter, are single conductor instead of four, have a long-legged bottom plate with a wood spacer.

The Alnico II Pro's have changed over the years. The Slash Signature set are made close to the same specs as the ones in Slash's Derrig Les Paul replica.

I heard slash had to have them rewound about 2 years ago anyways so there not even really the same pickup anymore.
