P-Rails in an H-575 (jazz box). Pics, clips in third post.If anyone has info or sound clips, please respond.
I think it might very well in a poplar or maple body but that Mojo is all Mahogany so it is a bit too warm a tone for a fender sound.Very cool Alex. Do you feel that the single captures that Fender single vibe, and the P90 the P90 vibe, etc? Also does anyone else have experience with this pickup?
After watching the P-Rails demo video on the Seymour Duncan site, they appear to have the same problem as other splittable humbuckers - a big drop in volume and anemic, thin, screechy tone in single coil mode. A few people have commented that the pickups have some extra bass, but aren't muddy.
While I wouldn't expect a split humbucker to retain the same volume level, it seems the P-Rails design might offer some improvement. The idea of parallel/P-90/single coil combinations is very intriguing. I played a Grosh with a Fralin Unbucker bridge and 2 single coils (not sure what brand/model sc), and although the humbucking mode wasn't the greatest, the split to single coil was surprisingly good, and matched up very well with the 2 single coil pickups.
If anyone has info or sound clips, please respond.
