See All Seymour Duncan Humbucker Pickups
OVERVIEW

A humbucker pickup set 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 mismatched coil configuration. The P-90 pickup 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 from your Seymour Duncan pickup, 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, 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

Been playing for 30 years + and this is the most versatile pickup since the stratocaster!I used to carry 2 or 3 guitars to a gig, now only one due to the airline baggage restriction! I've got a Les Paul and a PRS, both with a set of PRails and triple shot mounting ring. For me the best way to really get a very usable rail sound is to mount it further away from each other, meaning the P90 closer together and the rails further apart. I can get a very close tone of a strat that way.I love this setup and the P-Rails!

I installed a matched set of P-RAILS in my Carvin DC-127. This guitar has a neck-thru solid body, maple neck & center and alder wings. Following the diagrams on SD's site, I wired each pickup to a 3-way toggle that let me choose parallel humbucker, rail, or P-90 modes.

At home, playing by myself, they sounded interesting. Live, though, when bass and keys were involved, my guitar completely disappeared in the mix.

Output was not the problem. These are plenty hot in HB and P-90 modes. (The neck pickup is quite a bit hotter than the bridge, which forced me to install separate volume controls for eah pickup.)

The P-90 sound was best IMO, although I wouldn't mistake it for a "real" P-90. I could never get a good live tone in humbucker mode; I was looking for a full sound with a nice sparkle on top, and it just wasn't there. Rail output was so low as to be almost unusable.

Maybe it was this guitar, I don't know; but the P-RAILS just didn't work for me. Fortunately, I was able to sell them for most of what I paid.

Seymour Duncan P-Rails Set

Ask me a question

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

I used these pickups in a guitar I build using Warmoth parts. I'm very happy with them, great usable humbucker and single coil sounds. In the past I've tried coil taps/splits, and have never gotten a good single coil sound out of it.

These really do the trick, when in the rails mode I can get the 3 sounds I use most out of a standard strat, twangy bridge, sizzley combined, and blusey neck. The P-90 mode is really versitle, a little more punch than a strat single coil, so it works well for going back and forth from rhythm to lead. And the humbucker mode has that Les Paul sound to it, fat, creamy and a lot of punch.

These might not be for everybody, I really like them because I prefer pickups with a classic sound/output. Definately not for people who want high output, or super heavy sounds. But they do give 3 accurate classic pickup sounds in one guitar.

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

These are without a doubt the best pickups that I have ever played through. After 30 years playing professionally I've finally found the perfect pickup. It does it all, single coil tone for chord work, P90 tones for raunchier stuff, and amazing humbucker tones. I have them in my Les Paul going into a Fender Super Reverb and without anything else I can get 90% of any guitar tone. I can't say enough about how great these are.

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

These pickups are just "WOW!" I own an '86 PRS & (for a spare) a PRS SE 24. I put a set in the SE & it actually can do more than the '86! Pro wired with 2 mini-switches, I get 15 sounds! 3 sounds each alone & 9 duals! I can't say enough about these fantastic pickups! Well-worth their price.

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

    Love the way these sound and the versatility of these pickups. The only reason I wouldn't give them 5 stars is the fact that I had to bend the mounting tangs on both pickups to get them to sit in the center of the SD mounting rings. I was also dissapointed in the craftsmanship. QC seemed a little lax compared to several SD products that I've had in the past

    Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

    I just installed a P-Rail in the bridge (59' humbucker in the neck) in my Ibanez Artcore Hollowbody and wow. I mean WOW! I love these pick-ups! I used the Seymour Duncan TS-1 mounting ring switch for the installation and they work great together. I am now planning on swithcing out the stock USA Fender neck/middle pick-ups and previously installed "Pearly Gates" humbucker in my USA Stratocaster for 2 P-Rails (neck & bridge).

      P-Rails pair in PRS 24 SE

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

      Had a friend install a pair of these with the triple-shot mounting rings on a PRS SE c24. The flexibility is incredible, and the tones are overall outstanding, especially when using the p'ups in combination. Gave it 4-stars instead of 5 only because the P90s sound just a bit lighter than a full-out P90 roar, and the series humbucker doesn't have a deep crunch to it - but my goodness, if they could do all that then they'd be the only pickup that anyone would ever use. The most intriguing settings (both clean and overdriven) include Bridge Series/Neck P90, Bridge Parallel/Neck Rail, and Bridge Rail/Neck Rail. Major kudos to Seymour Duncan for this innovation.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-1s P-Rails - Neck and Bridge Pickup Set:

      Great pickups and super cool concept.
      Extreme tonal range for an extreme tonal palette.
      These things are rock solid. The only problem I had was that the magnet spacing of the bridge pickup did not perfectly match my string spacing. The neck pickup matched just fine though. Sound quality is fantastic and you will spend endless hours exploring new tonal ranges. I was a little disappointed in the tone of the rail single coil; it just didn't have enough midrange for me. However, the P90 and the series and parallel humbucker positions sound great.
      I would say that these pickups are priced just right for their possibilities you are getting out of them.
