Railhammer Pickups – HYPER VINTAGE BRIDGE HUMBUCKER

Railhammer’s take on the age old traditional PAF design.

like all Railhammer pickups,the first glance reveals a rather unusual pickup style…the theory being Rails sensing a narrower range of the fatter lower strings, and oversized poles sensing a wider range of the thinner high strings…equaling a more even tonal range.

SPECS

Alnico 5 Magnet

4 conductor cable

Measured DC resistance – 8.7K ohms

This is a sweet vintage styled bridge humbucker that nails all the familiar characteristics of the PAF type. Very similiar to my trusted 59 (almost 20 years old, 8.4K ohms) but the Hyper Vintage just produce a tad  more beef in the lower mids, without  sacrificing any clarity or being overly bright.

Definitely a worthy choice if you are seeking a “PAF on steroids” type bridge humbucker.
