      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

      Get the most versatile pickup made!

          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.

          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.

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

            I play in a church band. These pickups work great for me as I have a large variety of sounds I need to emulate during a normal church service. These do the trick. While they won't replace a really nice strat or set of humbuckers, overall they do sound really good, and I doubt many of the people listening would be able to tell the difference between these and the real thing.

            I installed 2 push pull pots on tone knobs on my Epiphone Les Paul standard and dropped these in place of the old stock pickups. I got a wiring diagram from Seymour Duncan's website. These are definitely much better than stock pickups I previously had.

              I purchased a set of p-rails to replace the humbuckers that came with my 1991 fender jaguar. I've had them installed with the triple shot mounting rings for 2 days now and i am blown alway with the wide range of sound you can get from these. the bridge pickup is a bit quieter on some settings but other than that they are a great choice. Love the clean jangle quack single coil sound, the fat p-90 sound, and the muddy humbucker sound as well as the ability to mix and match them. They took a guitar that i was already in love with and forced me to marry it!

                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.

                  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 decided to replace the godawful pickups in my 70's Ibanez Doubleneck with P-rails and Triple shots. I didn't want to hassle with switches. The Triple Shots give you great flexibility, and getting Strat, Tele, and humbucker textures is very handy. The big surprise is the 12-string. Using those additional combinations gets me much close to my idealized Rickenbacker sound. I own a 360/12, so I could make an excellent comparison.
                  The triple shots are a bit flimsy feeling until installed. Somehow, I don't see these being trouble free for the long haul, but work great and super-easy installation. I only wish I had done this sooner.

                        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.

                        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.
