Just put Slash pickups in
« on: August 26, 2011, 01:50:01 AM »
Just installed them...and while I don't want to sound like a fanboy...but Holy shit. It sounds incredible. I have an epiphone les paul custom and with these pickups in it literally sounds exactly like Slash. I play through a Peavy Vavleking 212 and IT IS AMAZING :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

Why would you want to sound exactly like Slash? :tongue:
That's cool man. I have to say I would hate to sound like someone else, but if you dig it then that's fucking cool. Ronnie Wood uses a Slash custom for some songs, so you're in good company :thumbsup:
I think it is high time for a bit of class around here, don't you?

from what i'm told the slash pick ups aren't the pick ups he typically uses anyway so they're essentially exactly the same as the metallica signature guitars in that most people have never seen nor heard the artist use them.
Apparently a new Amy Winehouse 'Greatest Hits' collection is coming out, but the tinfoil and spoons aren't included.

Glad to hear you're enjoying achieving a decent sound. And for all those harsh comments, aren't we all (including the current gnr lineup)  guilty of trying to sound like slash (or in the very least playing all his riffs ?) :D

This is false, the pickups are the ones he puts in his live guitars.

I took a swig of Jack, whacked a Marlboro red in my mouth and put on my top hat before I learned Smoke on the Water last night

Johan is not nuts. At least not anymore nuts than the rest of us. He is ruled by his own psychology, which includes jealousy that he cannot sing that high.
