    New pups with 2 coils; a P-90 and a Rail- have you heard about these yet? I've been considering changing the pickups in my Hamer Special FM and it seems like you'd get a lot of versatility out of them. I wonder how they would stack up sonically in a shootout against a regular P-90 or rail pup?

    I found a clip on youtube so you can hear them:

    I spent a few hours with the SD guys and this P-Rails is KILLER!
    They've spent a couple years on this, making it the best it can be and to work out any "bugs."
    It will get you 99% of the way there, but with only ONE guitar.
    Top Notch. They really got a nice product.

    There is another thread on them around here somewhere.

    Anybody get a hold of a pair of these yet and A/B'd them against other humbuckers or P-90's?

    Hmm...upgrade for my Epiphone SG...perhaps...

    I saw something about these at some point, probably around NAMM and I was excited, but every time I see any piece of gear designed to do "everything," it ends up doing nothing, hopefully in the store so I don't have to deal with returning/selling it...
