P-Rails : Versatile Pickup
Lex B. 17.05.2013
I fitted a set of P-Rails into an Epiphone ES-339. They have transformed the guitar completely. It is now incredably flexible tonally. I installed the pickups in conjunction with a set of Tripple-Shot Mounting Rings. These permit me to select P-90, Single Coil, Humbucker Parallel or Series for each of the pickups seperately from the pickup rings discretely. I have also rewired the guitar so that one volume push/pull permits phase selection while the other volume push/pull permits parallel/series selection. As a result it is a very clean setup without toggle switches all over the guitar or drilling holes etc. The phase selection also helps reduce hum when using single coil type modes.
The pickups have a really great tone and are very resilliant at higher volumes, no microphonic issues. In P-90 mode the pickups are very hot as you would expect from a P-90 type pickup. Lots of attitude with a full tone, definition and a bit of snarl. In single coil mode it has a totally different character to the P-90, light and rounded, interesting in a semi-acoustic guitar. Parallel and series modes work well, I've never had a pickup wired in parallel so very interesting for me at any rate.
In all modes these pickups are outstanding. They have great definition and warmth. These are very much passive pickups done right, they have that classic sort of honk and in a really cool way. The huge variety of tones available are fantastic fun.
Massive improvement and change from the Epi PUs that came as stock. The stock PUs were OK but these are too much fun. The Seymore Duncans are fantastic fun and just give you loads of variety.
Seymore Duncan has wiring diagrams on their site for loads of different configurations too.
I would most definately recomend these pickups. Never mind anything else, they are just so much fun.

These pups are good, but I'm not over excited with them. They are the 5th pups that I've fitted on a Hagstrom Viking. I first changed the stoch HJ50s for SD PhaTCats, but they just didnt sing, they worked ok, but for me, didnt have tonal quality. Since then I've tried other HBs and P90s but beginning to think that the guitar was not inherently producing the tones. The guitar I love, it looks good, has a good unplugged tone, and the neck is a dream, so all I needed was a pup to finish it. My music style is complementary to the ES335 image, blues and classic rock.
When I installed the Prail pups I was very pleased with their build quality, and also their appearance, i was a bit aprehensive about the black finish after chome casings, but against the cherry red body they look bril!
I simply wired them with a double pole 3way switch, so selection became either neck, or bridge , or mixed pup could be run as a P90, HB or single
I like the P90 best, it is very precise and powerful, esp in neck or mixed pos'n and will break up nicely with drive. In bridge position I dont think they are the best pup, the sound is a bit too sterile and thin. HB is good, but ordinary. The single is ok but doesnt bring out the acoustic sounds of the semi which i thought it would. Maybe that is a sonic problem with the guitar.? But the singles esp in mixed are ok for clean rhythm strumming.
But overall, ilike the pups and they will remain on the guitar. I find the three sound options very usable. I dont know how the P90 sound or HB compares with other P90 / HB industry benchmarks but for me they work and are recommendable.

Pour commencer, situons le contexte. Ces micros sont venus remplacer la paire SH-2 / SH-4 d'origine de ma Mayones Setius GTM. Je les ai câblés moi-même et sans expérience préalable avec les Triple Shot (cadres de micro avec des mini-switch incorporés) et un push-pull en/hors phase pour exploiter au maximum leurs possibilités.

Le premier constat est sans équivoque : si vous voulez un son couillu, gardez vos humbuckers classiques, ce n'est pas le terrain de jeu de ces P-rails. En revanche, si vous voulez une guitare extrêmement polyvalente, c'est pour vous.
En effet, avec les innombrables possibilités de branchement, vous pouvez choisir votre configuration micro en temps réel : simple type strat, P90, humbucker série ou parallèle, sans compter que vous pouvez le faire individuellement sur chaque micro (imaginez donc le nombre de possibilités avec un simple switch 3 positions !)

Le risque est de perdre en route un peu de l'identité de votre guitare. En ce qui me concerne, le côté extrêmement pratique (mais néanmoins plus authentique que les solutions de type Variax) compense largement.
