Looks good Ive got a white one on my Strat and a Black one on a Tanglewood SG?...I gave it 4 stars 'only' To the sound when in H/B mode? its not the best Humbucker sound I've heard but, its a way of getting two different single coil sounds!.....
I play in quitar heavy band. Lately i do mostly home recordings. I own Les Paul type quitars so to cover all sound specter i needed Fender type sounding quitar. Clarity - Buying one SD P-Rail is the same as buying 3 different sounding great quitars. P-90 has destinctive nice and warm sound, with rail you get twangy strat sound and by combining both, one gets great sounding, not too hot, kinda vintage humbucker sound. Pros - insert P-Rail in your favorite quitar, set it properly and you do not have to change, retune, reset different quitars Cons - let you know when i find/hear it Recomend it for all types of music, for quitarists who can not afford 3 different sounding quitars. The best thing for couch quitarists or home recording musicians.
I bought these pups to replace the lifeless humbuckers on my Gibson 2012 Les Paul. I installed and wired them up useing Triple Shot mounting rings...everything worked fine and they sounded good through my effects pedals linked to my computer at home. My band had a gig on the same night that I installed them, so I took this Gibson Les Paul with new P-Rails along with my old faithfull Gibson SG to try these new P-Rails out. For the first half of the gig I used my Gibson SG its an old one and always sounds good. The second half of the gig I put on the Les Paul with the new SHPR-1 P-Rail pups. I play in the style of Gary Moore and co..rock n blues. So how did they fair? Well I wasn't disapointed they sounded fantastic, I thought they might be good but not this good, the p-90 and humbucker sounds were great. I can recommend these pickups they certainly put life into my Gibson 2012 Les Paul they realy compare to the old P-90 and Humbucker pickups you won't be dissapointed.. I wasn't.
I like these pickups but don't expect genuine P90 sound. If you want something different with interesting sound options then yes, this might be an alternative but if you're looking for P90 I'd rather get a humbucker sized P90. If you have to have it all in one guitar this might be a good compromise but that's it. Sound quality is good non the less, it's a SD and in my experience they're always dependable. Humbucker sound is pretty much normal and single coil mode is like a stacked single coil and P90 is more like a hot single coil and lacking some of the width normally associated with that type of pickup.
