OVERVIEW

A direct humbucker retrofit pickup with three distinct voices: full-size humbucker, P-90, and Rails.

The ground-breaking Seymour Duncan SHPR-2b P-Rails delivers 3 distinct tonal voices in a single guitar pickup: a fat humbucker, a beefy P-90, and a traditional single-coil Strat tone. This Seymour Duncan pickup is truly for guitar players who want it all and it's specifically designed to provide a punchier, more aggressive tone in the bridge position.

The Seymour Duncan P-Rails Hot pickup is armed with a beefed up coil wind and 2 powerful Alnico 8 magnets-which rival ceramic magnets in power but maintain the sweet sustain Alnico is known for. The P-90 coil in the P-Rails Hot pickup is wound with a special wire, selected for output and clarity. This P-90 is loud! The rail mode is hotter thanks to the power of the Alnico 8, and the series humbucker mode is huge.

Seymour Duncan P-Rails Hot pickups are a direct humbucker retrofit and can be used in any guitar set up for a traditional humbucker or Trembucker spacing. To maximize P-Rails Hot's unique splitting capabilities and to get the most tonal versatility, Seymour Duncan recommends using them in tandem with a standard Seymour Duncan P-Rails (sold separately) in the neck position with a 2-way switch (push-pull or mini-toggle) to get both humbucker and P-90 tones. Use a 3-way switch (DPDT on-off-on) to bring in the single-coil Rail tones. Or, for the ultimate in versatility, use Seymour Duncan's Triple Shot switching mounting ring (sold separately).

Normally, in humbucking mode, P-Rails are wired in series for a high-output sound that works great for classic rock and heavier tones. However, when wired in parallel, the coil mismatch produces very usable moderate-output humbucker tones with less of the phase cancellation often associated with standard parallel-wired humbuckers.

Seymour Duncan P-Rails Hot pickups are recommended for all styles of music. They are built in the USA at Seymour Duncan's Santa Barbara, California workshop.


Get a punchier, more aggressive tone for the bridge position when you order the SHPR-2b P-Rails Hot pickup today.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-2b P-Rails Hot Bridge Pickup:

      Sounds great, has quite a high output and an interesting sound. Because of the mix of the p-90 and the rail, it travels the line between thick and heavy, and distinct and clear , very well. I was able to hook it up to give me the full range of pickup selections in my CIJ jaguar. Very nice sustain, but not the overbearing midrange that a lot of pickups have. Really all around great, every mode from series humbucker, parallel, and the two coils individually sound unique and great.

        Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-2b P-Rails Hot Bridge Pickup:

        It's a great idea and in the standard version it works much better. This is just way too hot and muddy to be used in any situation in my opinion

        Comments about Seymour Duncan SHPR-2b P-Rails Hot Bridge Pickup:

        It's not hot output. Can still hear hums. Voicing is not
        Close to the original. Plus customer service is poor can't give
        Their customer a good wiring diagram. Bad purchase. I use
        Dimarzio brand now I learned my lesson to stick with Dimarzio
