What about this kind of HB for strat?
Sound-wise, yes, aesthetically, no
Why not? If you like the sound, do it.
I know lots of fantastic players who use rail pups so if you want a hum bucker l’d say go for it.... single coil tone is way more dynamic and less generic in my opinion but l have to have a tone control for the bridge or else it’s to shrill so ld take a rail bucker over a single coil with no tone control any day but it all comes down to what you like? A good in between would be a tele bridge pup or and overwound...
Dual rails in middle and bridge - white one has an American Pro in the neck, and the burst has a true vintage 65 in the neck (both are right handed pickups played upside down, one of my favorite sounds) they give me some great sounds and when I need a stratty sound those neck pickups do it.
No, not for me, not humbuckers. Not ever.
But for you? Whatever floats your particular boat.
Why not ?
I've done a lot of them...no problems... and remember... it's your guitar, You don't need our approval... the only reason anyone needs for anything relative to their guitars is, "I wanted it that way dawggone it..."
Of course, you should be able to back up your decision with a few stunning riffs.. followed by, "it makes me do that...."
Sounds are good. Higher power and more chunk. But I don't like the appearance of them so I don't use them.
You can always revert.
Not me but we’re all different.
here's a bit of a factoid . . .
It was Bill Lawrence that gave us the split rails in the 70's... but like many today, few could accept the non-conventional appearance, so Bill deserted the design... when a young employee left Bill, Bill gave him the rights to manufacture pups under his name, using that design... the "kid". was Joe Barden...
Since then many have used the design to create pickups of similar designs. And Becky Lawrence still manufacturers Bill’s latest designs of the originals..
and for those researching... digging through the archives to counter the above ... I'm sure someone somewhere made something similar, prior to Bill's development.... But it was Bill that brought them to the fore-front..
Just like Seth Lover didn’t really invent . . . he just incorporated pre-existing electromotive engineering into pickups...
Absolutely yes. But... put one in all three positions. No single coil hum, nice humbucker sounds if you want them, but also nice single coil sounds too. Yes... a dual rails pickup can sound like a traditional single coil. Don't believe those who say it can't!
Is that a Chopper? I am generally not a big fan of bumhuckers but I have a Telecaster with a DiMarzio Chopper T in the bridge. It sounds great!
Yes they sound good, but I do not like the look at all.
I don't particularly like the look, but I got a good deal on a used set of DiMarzio's with creme covers that included a Dimarzio Chopper.
Now that its in the guitar I like it so much, it ain't coming out.
Hell yes!!!! Rock on!
