Strings to the Max

Seymore Strat / Hotrail

Recommended Posts

I've done many p/u change out's.............But this ax is my pride and joy so I'm being carefull

1983 American :D Standerd Stat W/ the noise cancelling tone pot .

I put a Seymore Hotrail on bridge and wired it for bucking (Hot) soldered

the two remaining wires were the single coil once was ..............

It just Isn't as Crunchy as I'd like it and it seems very un balenced with the other two P/u .............................Any Schumatuic wiring Idea's or bag it

go back to Original!!!!

hotrails are never going to sound as crunchy as a true humbucker.i think there is just not enough room to wrap the coils enough

Wes you've got a point , but my "Super Distortion's or SH- 6's

Scott you soldered the red and white together correct!! and green and Sheild

we are talking about the single coil hot rails correct?the one made to fit in a single coil cavity but in actuality has 2 coils?i just don't find them to have the bottom end like a true humbucker.on lead they do have alot of extra highs though.he said crunchy so i assume he meant for rythm.i guess it depends alot on what you are playing of course.i thought a screaming demon is a true humbucker.hot rails screamin demon
