- P-Rails SHPR-2b HOT P-90 Bridge Pickup, Black
- Alnico 8 Magnets
- Switchable P-90 and Single Coil Pickups
- Standard Humbucker Size
- Made in USA
Guitar players want it all and they want it now. Fat humbucker tones. Beefy P90 tones. Traditional single coil tones. With P-Rails they can have it all. And now, with the new P-Rails Hot, they can get a punchier, more aggressive tone for the bridge position.
This Seymour Duncan-exclusive design is a direct humbucker retrofit that allows up to three distinct voices: full-size humbucker, P90, and Rails. Recommended for all styles of music.
Compared to Original P-Rails, the Hot bridge features a beefed up coil and a more powerful Alnico 8 magnet to deliver the same tonal flexibility as its predecessor, but specifically designed to provide a punchier, more aggressive tone in the bridge position. The P-90 coil in the P-Rails Hot is wound with a special wire type, selected for output and clarity. This P90 is loud! The Rail mode is hotter thanks to the power of the Alnico 8, and the series Humbucker mode is huge!
A complete setup would include a P-Rails Hot in the bridge and a P-Rails Original in the neck. To get both humbucker and P90 tones, use a two-way switch (push-pull or mini-toggle, not included). Use a three way switch (DPDT on-off-on, not included) to bring in the single coil Rail tones.
The P-Rails Hot can be used in any guitar set up for a traditional humbucker or Trembucker. It can be used singly, however to maximize the P-Rails unique splitting capabilities and get the most tonal versatility, use a neck and bridge set. The R-Rails Hot is recommended for bridge position.
