Instructions
Railhammer's Chisel pickups are aggressive and thick, but clear, for heavy rock and metal. Tight clear tone on the wound strings, without the plain strings sounding thin. Harmonically rich, with a cutting upper-mid attack.

There's no mistaking the look of a Railhammer humbucker, or the great sound!
They're the result of a personal tone quest by guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor, founder of Reverend Guitars. Joe was tired of hearing mushy distortion from neck-position humbuckers.

His solution: narrow-sensing height-tapered rails for the wound strings, to reduce note smearing, and oversize 6mm polepieces for the plain strings, to increase note thickness and sustain. "I thought if I can keep the clarity of rails on the wound strings, but build in the fat tone of large round poles for the plain strings, it'd be perfect." And he did it, without volume drop-out anywhere on the pickup!

Railhammer humbuckers have universal string spacing that works for practically any guitar, thanks to the oversize polepieces and long rails. They fit any guitar with standard size humbuckers. The non-adjustable poles, vacuum wax-potted coils and 6-screw baseplate (standard humbuckers have 4) reduce internal vibration to prevent unwanted feedback.

Railhammers are available in Chisel, Hyper Vintage and Anvil models.

Includes height screws and springs. 500K pots and .022 microfarad tone cap are recommended.

Versatile 4-conductor hookup wire with ground allows custom coil-splitting, phase reversal and series/parallel wiring.

Wire color codes:
Black = hot
Green = ground
Braid = ground
White = red: Solder together and tape off

Surprised they do as they say :-)

I'm using this hammer PU on a Duesenberg Starplayer. I'm playing Crunchy Sounds with the need for Metal sounds on certain songs. This works perfectly...and even the twang is still here...what more to be happy?
