SLASH’S 1959 GIBSON LES PAUL STANDARD REPLICA VIDEO UP ON MUSICRADAR…

Posted on December 13, 2011

When most working guitarists experience a problem with their instrument, they rely on their tech or local music shop to help solve the problem. But if you’re SLASH and your number one guitar is acting up, you go to the source.

Although he’s retired his 1959 Gibson Les Paul Standard replica from live performances, SLASH still relies on it his for recording. Recently he noticed that he was getting some unwanted feedback and squeals from the instrument and after exhausting various remedies, he brought the guitar to Seymour for an expert fix.See what they had to say below:

“The pickups – Duncan Alnico Pros – were what I would call ‘subbornly microphonic,”” says Scott Olson from Seymour Duncan. “Through so many gigs and various weather conditions while traveling, on stage, whatever, Slash wore out the wax potting. They were exposed, and they were starting to squeal. If everything is still in working order, once you stabilize the components, you can work wonders and that’s what happened here. All in all, it was a very happy ending. Slash was thrilled at the results.”
