A Very Hot Pickup!!!

By Jaybo377

from Prestonsburg, KY

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I dropped a Seymour Duncan Shr-1 Hot Rail in my strat and saw a big improvement. This pickup gave me all of the sustain I could handle. The single coils that came in my strat just didn't give me the overdrive I needed. A humbucker that drops right into a single coil slot is the only way to go. I dropped it in my strat in about 10 minutes and it was ready to go. This pickup is awesome for lead work.

Perfect affordable upgrade

By EvanA3546

from California

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

This thing is pretty nice! First of all it sounds great, gives you great sustain and a lot more presence than most stock single coil pickups, and humbucking of course for an affordable price. I'm using this in a standard mexi strat, it's the perfect afforable upgrade if you are looking for a more "beefy pickup" single coil slot upgrade. I recommend putting this into the bridge position of a strat, you'll need to cut away a little bit of the pick gaurd (it's a little bigger than the standard slot). Did i mention it also looks AWESOME, and being a rock guitarist, everything has to look cool. :) WELL worth the purchase.

Hot Rails Rock!

By Henry

from Boulder, CO

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

Just upgraded my son's MIM Fat Strat with an SHR-1N (hot rails neck) to complement the SD JB in the bridge position. The MIM Strat has proved to be an great platform to build on, and the Hot Rails in the neck position really screams while providing excellent definition and clarity. Whether he's using the increased output to over drive his tube amp, grabbing some pinch harmonics, or playing clean, the hot rails pickup delivers a dramatic improvement in sound quality and dynamics.

What an upgrade!

By TJ07043

from Montclair, NJ

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I cannot imagine a better upgrade for the money. I have a recent vintage American Standard Strat and, although I've always been a Fender guy, didn't use the bridge pup much - didn't really care for the sound. On a recommendation, I dropped one of these SD hotrails in there - what did I have to lose? - and it literally transformed the guitar! Sustain, bite, grit - very much like and LP, but in a Strat body! And, since the American Standard has a 5-way switch, I'm blending the SD in on two out five settings. The best $ I've ever spent on anything related to a guitar. I can't recommend it highly enough!

HotRailed right into the wall!

By austin

from Independence, Missouri

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I put one of these in a project strat two summers ago. the add is right. its extremely high output. it puts you in the unique position of having a humbucker that sounds like a humbucker, but also manages to keep the guitar sounding like a strat. its super-hot. and super-loud. but the best part? its SILENT! there isn't even a shadow of a hint of a buzz coming from this thing. only very rarely do i even hear the 60 cycle hum from the amp! it was an easy install, and the directions were very clear. unless you're crazy, buy this pickup.

This pickup scorches

By Mike

from Philly, Pa

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I had the good luck of buying a mexi strat with one of these already installed. The tone of this pickup in even something unassuming as a three color sunburst strat made it a vicious tone machine. I worked at Ibanez at the time, and this cheap Strat with a minor pickup addition would absolutely lay waste to some $1200 Ibanez Jem. No Joke, Hot Rails are the real deal. I'm gonna buy a cheap Squier and drop one of these in the bridge. It's like instant Iron Maiden, with wicked harmonics. Buy this pickup.

Tone, or Power?

By Mark

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I think that is what it comes down to. If you want an ultra-power humbucker for your strat, this is it. You will get the sustain and squeals. The price you pay is tone. If you want more "umph" in your strat and you like humbucker tone, then my opinion is the JB-jr. It has more tone than the hot rails. Lastly, if you love the single coil tone but want a bit more edge, the SSL-5 is great. I find that after a few years of playing a strat, I have simply come to love single coil tone - in my opinion the best tone for a strat. I took the hot rails out and put an ssl-5 in. Can't do metal, but oh does it freakin' sound good.

Powerfull!!

By Mark

from Rockfall, CT

Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

I just put this pickup in the bridge of my American Standard Strat. All I can say is WOW what an amazing sounding pickup. I can get those nice heavy chunky rythyms and soaring solos. And it doesn't sound too bad clean either. If you can - wire this up so you can use your tone with the pickup this will give you so many more options for your sound.

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

      I love the way Stratocasters feel and play but I'm not a fan of their jangley sound. I have owned about 5 Fender Strats over the course of few years trying to "find my tone" and I sold each and every Strat do to the way the pickups sounded.....don't get me wrong I love single coil guitars and I own several Danelectros which have phenomenal single coils that my Strats just couldn't do. I am a Stratocaster player because they just call my name and I feel they are hands down the best all around guitar out there.
      I ended up finding "the one" out of all the Strats that I've owned and I simply could not sell this one so I started to do some research and I came across the SD Hot Rails.......wow what a difference this baby made for my tone! All the benefits and versatility in a Strat with a big LP humbucker sound! I need to make one thing clear..... this pick up sounds better than a stock Les Paul which I find to be way too dark, the Hot Rails will give you the treble that you need to retain your Strat sound. I installed my HR in the bridge position in about 15 minutes........Just buy it you will love it.

      Hot Rails= Awesome

      By James

      from manassas. va

      Comments about Seymour Duncan SHR-1 Hot Rails Single-Coil Sized Humbucker Pickup:

      I was having a problem with not being able to get feedback from some Fender Pickups I bought and put into my guitar. (1969 specials or something.) I just took it out, put this in. And this is hott! Its basically like having a humbucker in your guitar. (i put it in the brigde position.) i give 5 stars and i plan to replace the other 2 pickups as well. oh... PS.. the 4 conductor wiring instructions for coil tapping is really easy to read.
