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).

The right choice!


from Mt. Pleasant, NC

This was the first step in upgrading my Epi Dot Studio. My "guitar guy" Mark at the N Charlotte store suggested one of these. I ordered the bridge p'up and ended up putting it in the neck position. Right now it's only wired for either the humbucker or the P90. Later, when I have the other one installed I'll do the full wiring for all the options. I play mostly through a Vox AC4C1-Bl, and let me tell you, this is one versatile pickup. There is a clear difference in the two modes, each of them really nice. The humbucker pairs nicely with the Epi bridge p'up, the P90 does too. The SD as a humbucker alone is warm but not muddy, and the P90 alone has a distinct sound. This pickup breaks up nicely, a little sooner than the stock Epi Alnico Classic did, a little hotter I think. I'm really looking forward to completing the upgrade with a second SHPR-1N, installing a second coil-splitting tone knob and a three way mini-switch to make full use of the options. The guitar tech at N Charlotte, Daniel, did a great job with the installation, so thanks to him too!
