New PuP Day!

Love the sound of Railhammers in my Sensei, so I reached out to Railhammer and asked for a recommendation for my 535 based upon my playing style.

Recommended a Nuevo90 Neck Pickup (P90) and a Hypervintage Railhammer for the bridge.

Wow.  They nailed it.  Clean/Jazz blues in the neck for a mellow yet clear tone and some serious grit in the bridge that takes high gain to the next level.

Wow!

I am not familiar with the pu's but that is a nice guitar love the top!

They were invented about ten years ago by Joe Naylor founder of Naylor amplification and Reverend Guitars.  He has them as an upgrade pickup for aftermarket and also stock in many Reverend models.  I tried a set once about 8 years ago, but they were the original type that were way too much for my H150 I had.  Most recently, I rediscoverd their hypervintage lineup which is voiced more like a vintage PAF style pickup.  Even at high gain, the note definition is very clear.  Rather uncanny how they work, but they sound great.  Almost like you are running a stereo setup with a mildbreakup/clean amp mixed with high gain.  Hard to explain, but I really love this setup.  The Nuevo90 is new to me, but when I played it the first time, I was blown away.  My favorite blues tune is Stormy Monday and this Nuevo90 sounded amazing.  Cleans up when rolled back on volume, and the tone knob is key to mellow it a bit.
