Seymour Duncan P-rails

Hi,

Does anybody have installed into their guitar, or heard somebody else's guitar which has them installed, the pick ups as mentioned in the pre-wired guard link below?

https://920dcustom.com/collections/920d-loaded-pickguards/products/seymour-duncan-hsh-p-rails-loaded-strat-pickguard-white-pearl-white

If so - are the pick ups really as good as the reviews seem to point towards?

Kind regards,
Rufus

Ok, so I'm two months late here with the reply, but here goes;
Good, in this case, is far too subjective.
Are these good quality pickups ?
SD pickups usually are very decent.
Will they be 'good' for you, style wise ?
Can't answer that without more info.
What are you going to play, what kind of amp and guitar will you be using, etc. ?

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to reply, Dan.
I had intended to place them into a Strat, but since that date I have read that whilst it isn't exactly an easy job (routing wise for the layman) I have read that they sound really good in a Les Paul type (not a Gibson).
I intend to build the guitar myself and I'm looking at using either 'Crimson' or 'Guitar Build' to take the pain of messing the routing up as they offer the service.
At the moment I'm limited to what I can and can't do on the building side of things, although I still manage to practice my chords/Tab regular as clockwork on the geeeetar.
The amp that they will be played through is a Mustang V2.
I have, of late, been hooked on Blues and would quite like to give that a bash, although I must say that my real love is 'Rock n Roll' (not heavy metal although I do enjoy listening to some) / Surf / Shadows. I don't think for 1 second that I'll be playing anything of substance for at least 12/18 months but that's fine.
I am very basic novice with a capital 'N' but I'm getting somewhere, albeit slowly - but slowly, slowly catchy monkey all the same.

Kind regards,
Rufus

For what you want Irongear might be worth looking at, I’ve used them in the past and found them exceptionally good.
They will also give advice freely as regards what to look at for what you want to do, it’s really well worth speaking to them - it will cost nothing!

Hi,

Thank you for the heads-up, Darrell - I'll give them a call in the next couple of days.

Kind regards,
Rufus
