Troy, MI (January 15, 2012) – The Chisel Neck model pickup is designed for hard rock and metal players. A high output ceramic magnet, 42 gauge wire, and reduced winding are used to produce exceptional clarity for a neck pickup. The tone is aggressive and thick but stays clear when played hard or while playing chords. Riffs are loud and distinct, even with heavy distortion or low tunings.

The patent pending Railhammers are designed by award winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor. Railhammers feature rails under the wound strings for tight lows, and poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This allows players to dial in a tight percussive tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. The result is clarity that rivals an active pickup, but with the harmonic content and organic tone of a passive design.

Touch sensitivity, sustain, and harmonic content are also enhanced by the extremely efficient magnetic structure, and the elimination of any moving parts. The strong magnetic field also prevents any dead spots when bending strings.

Other features include: universal spacing, six screw German silver baseplate, four-conductor wiring (for custom wiring such as coil split, phase, series/parallel, etc.) and height tapered rails which contribute to consistent volume from string to string.

Chisel Bridge model also available.

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
