I run an HS set up, which I have on my charvel. It started out as HH but it didn't stay that way for long. I love the functional diversity of HS.

I've had a few true single coils, some hum free singles, and some single coil sized humbuckers. Best of the bunch was the Dimarzio Chopper, but I currently have a Seymour Duncan STK-S1n, which is a noiseless single that comes in a lot of HSS Jackson's.

It's... ok. Underpowered and a bit vanilla.

Anyway since I keep seeing rave reviews about the Irongear stuff I grabbed one of their rail singles

IronGear Pickups - Jailhouse Rail II

Should arrive tomorrow.

Anybody used them?

I can't make any sweeping generalisations based on this one experience, but their description of this pickup is way off. It's Muddy, it's boomy, it's got literally no sparkle or spank to it What so ever. Like it's hooked up to a permanently rolled-off tone knob.

I was only trying it to avoid the expense of a Duncan Hot Rails but fuck it, buy nice or buy twice huh....
