Alnico II pros in alder LP ???

I Have an European SX Les Paul Style guitar, it has an alder body, maple neck, and rosewood fretboard. I want to put in some a2 pros to get a sound that is closer to GNR. Help ?

Sure, why not, they're Slash's pickups, so; that'll help.

It does depend on what guitar you put them in, what amp you use, but, getting the right pickups is a step in the right direction.

It will probably sounds great. The A2P is made for "brighter toned instruments" so I can guess it mean brighter toned woods like alder and maple neck would work. I'm also planning on a A2P set on my Mahogany/mahogany with ebony fretboard guitar but worry that it might sound too dark for my taste.

If you play classic rock, Id like to suggest something.



I think a lot of those old Ekos are Vox derived so have you ever tried cranking up the volume to the max? It'll probably produce a really nice sounding gain tone. Especially if you boost it with an overdrive. (not a modeling one a real one. Set the level to max, and the gain at a very low point)
