See All Seymour Duncan Humbucker Pickups
OVERVIEW

A full-size humbucker that splits to either a full-size P-90, or a special Alnico-powered single-coil Rail pickup.

Until now, if you wanted humbucker, P-90, and vintage Strat tones, you'd have to haul three guitars to the gig. But that was before the Seymour Duncan SHPR-1 P-Rails pickups. P-Rails feature a ground breaking, patent pending design allows a full-size humbucker to split to either a real deal P-90 or a traditional single-coil. Perfect for a wide variety of styles including country, pop, surf, jazz, blues, classic rock, and heavy rock.

The humbucker sound is full and expansive, owing to the mis-matched coil configuration. The P-90 is a super fat. And the Rail coils, when used together, sound like the 2 and 4 "in-between" positions in a great Strat.

P-Rails can be used in any guitar set up for a traditional humbucker or Trembucker. A single P-Rails will bring added dimension to your guitar sound. However, to optimize the unique splitting capabilities and get the best single-coil Rails tones, use a neck and bridge set.

To get both humbucker and P-90 tones, use a two-way switch (push-pull or mini-toggle). To have humbucker and P-90 tones and bring in the added dimension of the single-coil Rail guitar pickup, use a three-way switch (DPDT on-off-on).

FEATURES
  • Full size humbucker
  • Patent pending design
  • Perfect for a wide variety of styles
  • Three distinct modes
  • Humbucker
  • P-90
  • Single-coil

This incredibly versatile Seymour Duncan pickup gives you loads of tonal options!

          I bought it the sound was awful. The humbucker was so muddy, the P-90 not to clear, the single coil sounds like playin in tin can. Worst I asked seymour duncan to change it but ignored my request after sending several email request. They replied once but thats it. Don't buy this

              Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1b P-Rails - Bridge Pickup:

              Put it in the bridge of my telecaster and it absolutely sings. Every position is great, and most of all, completely unique. Humbucking mode is thick and meaty, rail retains that strat sound, and the P90 is fat, yet articulate. Get this pickup. I don't know if I'll ever go back to any other pickup after this.

                    Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1b P-Rails - Bridge Pickup:

                    I wired these up with all options available for every combination in a Les Paul, looking for the answer to everything. Nothing does everything and neither do these. They do a pretty good P90 tone, average humbucker tone (kinda loose, lack definition) and the rails are terribly thin and weak. Great idea, just not quite there yet. Hopefully, they can somehow make it work but until then, I'd rather have one good set of pickups than 3 average ones. My experience being an intermediate/advanced player with 20 years experience who has owned over 100 different pickups.

                    P-rails open a guitar to a lot of sounds.

                    By Stacy Fenton

                    from southern Iowa

                    Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1b P-Rails - Bridge Pickup:

                    I put the set in a Chinese built LP copy and at first wasn't happy with the sound so I changed the wiring setup and now I'm blown away with how these sound. I used 2 push-pulls in the tone positions and regulars in the volumes. Ive always changed pickups in my guitars and I always series-split-parallel them with a mini on-on-on switches cause I want all the sounds I can get out of them. I can get almost any sound I want out of these with all the options I have. The only thing I can't get is a high output sound which is not what they were designed for. Definately glad I picked a set of these up and that I've been a SD fan for years, they fit my sound.
                    You get a P90, single coil rail and humbucker in one pickup. The people at Seymour Duncan really put their thinking caps on for this one.
                    As always Seymour Duncan quality through and through.
                    I would have given more for this pickup. I bought the bridge and neck set. But lets be honest here, pickups just plain cost too much.

                    You get the sounds of the P-90, Rails, Humbucker

                    By Not-So-Slim Tim

                    from Fresno, CA

                    Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1b P-Rails - Bridge Pickup:

                    I put these in place of the Duncan Designed pickup (which were pretty good to start with) with the Duncan P-Rails and the 3 Shot. In my opinion the combination makes the perfect stage guitar. You can get the sounds of the P-90, Single Hot Rail Fender and both Series and Parallel all in one guitar. You can also have 2 different tones out of each pickup. I like the Neck on the Rail and the Bridge on Parallel Humbucker.The more I use this setup the better I like it. I used this on an expensive Samic guitar and am hardly using my Les Paul.
