Product Description

Seymour Duncan Hot Rails are one of the highest output pickups Duncan makes.
It's a humbucker that fits into a normal single coil slot, so you get the noise canceling effect without cutting a large hole in your guitar. The two thin blades with powerful coil windings give you the incredible sustain and a fat, full sound that's needed for playing heavier rock music. This pickup responds to the subtlest finger movements.

The Hot Rails is a high output single-coil-size “rails” humbucker. Great for classic rock, garage, punk, heavy rock, thrash, classic metal and nu-metal.

It works for all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.

Players

  • Janick Gers & Dave Murray: Iron Maiden
  • Troy VanLeeuwen & Josh Homme: Queens of the Stone Age,
  • Greg Camp: Smashmouth
  • Jim Wilson: Rollins Band

Seymour Duncan completely re-vamped their rails and side-by-side single coil-sized humbuckers for Strat®.
Gone is the plastic bobbin topper. In its place is a sleek body cover that makes installation easier and eliminates errant high-E strings from catching under the old topper. Even though they updated the look of these popular pickups, rest assured the one thing that remains the same is the great tone. To make sure they captured the same tone in the new versions, they undertook a rigorous bench testing and sound testing regimen. You can review the results yourself.

Good pickup, even in my bad guitar.
The quality is excellent. The pickup is dependable and AMS is dependable without a doubt.
This pickup is extremely reliable. I would never advise someone to worry about wheter or not this pickup with just quit working on them or not, Seymour Duncan is excellent at what they do.
Your general opinion of this product.
This is a great product. I bought this pickup to replace a crappy stock pickup in my Fender Squire. If you own a Squire or something to that effect and want a better high gain sound, I strongly recommend purchasing this pick up, it will fix your problem instantly. It's much deeper and fitter for high gain playing like power chords and so on.
It feels fine. I have not noticed anything different as far as playability and feel after installing it.
I didn't give it a 5 because it's not perfect, but I believe that a 4 is an exceptional rating for it. It's pretty much hot, like the name suggests. If you are scared that this pickup would be too hot and would burn you, than think again. It's pretty smooth in my Fender Squire, but of course it isn't super-professional-cure-all, I'm not going to lie. It's a great buy, no doubt. Bottom line: I compared this to some DiMarzio pickups to fix my Fender Squire's crappy bridge pickup problem and I choose this. Of course pickups are all about preference, but I think that Hot Rails by Seymour Duncan are better for their ability and price than DiMarzio in this field.
It looks good, but not beautiful, at least in my guitar. It is also available in white, and that's what I did. It doesn't look out of place or bad, but I wouldn't' say it looks like it is extremely natural. If you are looking to replace pickups though, that will probably happen no matter what.

Great pickup, very powerful, dynamic, and raw.
Your general opinion of this product.
This pickup is great for Strat Players who require more sound versatility, especially when used in bridge position. Really helps guitar solos jump out of the mix. Great fat raw distortion sound "ala" AC/DC. Great Classic Rock Pickup! Louder than most pickups so don't expect a balanced output amoung your other non-hotrail single coil pickups. I use stock strat pickups in neck & middle and 1 hotrail in bridge.
