OVERVIEW

A new pickup design that generates improved tone no matter what your style.

The classic vintage P90 tone, evolved to perfection and fit it into a standard-size humbucker box. All the fat lower mids, raw attack, and greasy tone you'd expect, plus the tonal balance and enhanced response of the Railhammer design. And the full-metal cover makes it much quieter (less hum) than a standard P90. Perfect for blues, classic rock, old school punk, or for any player looking for that vintage vibe but wants the Railhammer advantage.

Rails under the wound strings for tight clear lows
Thin rails sense a narrow section of string, reducing note smearing and muddiness. There's still plenty of low end, it's just more defined and less mushy. Aggressive fast riffs, complex chords, and palm muting are tight, clear and cut through the mix. Clean or dirty, standard or low-tuned, the clarity is beyond other pickups.

Poles under the plain strings for fat singing highs
Oversize 6mm diameter poles sense a wide section of string, increasing thickness and sustain. Slow bend, double stops, or fast shred, the tone stays fluid and soulful without any thin, nasty harshness.

Efficient magnetic structure
The rails/poles are larger than traditional polepieces, and have a very large surface area contacting the magnet. This produces a strong and wide magnetic field which is very touch sensitive and responsive to your playing technique. It also means no dead spots when you bend, even on the pole side.

Height tapered rails
The rails taper up, with the highest point under the D string. Volume of the D string is now increased, which is typically weaker. This gives you more consistent volume overall from string to string.

Six screw baseplate
A traditional baseplate has four screws securing the bobbins to the baseplate. We added two extra screws which reduces internal vibration, preventing uncontrollable feedback and squealing.

No moving parts
Non-adjustable poles, along with vacuum wax potted coils and the six screw baseplate, result in a solid pickup with no moving parts. Excess vibration of parts has been eliminated to avoid uncontrollable feedback and squealing. Another benefit is enhanced clarity and response, because when the parts don't vibrate, they more accurately sense string movement.

Universal spacing
The oversize poles and long rails cover a wide string spread, which means the spacing will work with just about any guitar in any position.

    Comments about Railhammer Gnarly 90 Humbucker Size P90 Pickup:

    I installed a bridge Railhammer Gnarly 90 in my Puresalem Brave Ulysses and the result is dastardly. Every note bubbles to the surface in full Mesa saturation. It's like a tidal wave of greasepaint and liquid glass. I haven't even gotten to the clean because the distortion is so immaculate. Tide is high and it's smooth sailing. Thank you for you're innovation Mr. Naylor. I'm sure these will sell like bacon hotcakes.

        Comments about Railhammer Gnarly 90 Humbucker Size P90 Pickup:

        These pickups just plain rock. I have them in a Reverend Bob Balch Signature model. I still cannot believe how great these pickups sound. They perform as advertised, the lower strings have a tight bottom end without getting flabby. They really hit a home run with these!
