Railhammer Pickups Launches the Huevos 90

Classic P-90 tone with extra fat and punch.

Troy, MI (August, 11, 2016) -- Part of the new Humcutter series, the Huevos 90 is designed to capture classic P-90 tone, but with extra balls! We took our Nuevo 90 and beefed up the low end, slightly smoothed out the highs, and increased the output by about 10 percent. It all fits into a standard size humbucker box, and you get the tonal balance and enhanced response of the Railhammer design. Plus the dual-coil Humcutter design means it's hum free! Perfect for blues, classic rock, old school punk, or for any player looking for that P-90 tone but with a little extra fat and punch! And like all Railhammers, the improved clarity on the wound strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.

The patent-pending Railhammers are designed by award-winning guitar industry veteran Joe Naylor. Thin rails under the wound strings sense a narrow section of string, producing a tight, clear tone. Large poles under the plain strings sense a wide section of string, producing a fat, thick tone. This allows players to dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. The result is improved clarity and tonal balance across all the strings.

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 (including on the round pole side).

Other features include universal spacing, German silver cover, brass baseplate, four-conductor wiring with independent ground (allows custom wiring such as phase, series/parallel, etc.) and height tapered rails which contributes to consistent volume across all the strings. Bridge and neck versions available in chrome or black.

$99 US street price.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
