Rail pickup question.

My friend was looking to upgrade the bridge on her Telecaster. I recommended she'd try one out to coil tap and get both single coil and humbucker sounds. She said she was thinking about it but the other guitar player in her band has one on his strat, and she heard that if two guitars have rails near each other they will interfere with each other.

I've personally never heard of this, is this true?

Thanks

I've got two rail HB's in my V and I've never had any problems with interference.

i call bullshit on your friend.

if i had an X2N and a X2N on a Washburn idol with the X2N being one of the hottest around. there was no prolem there, i don't think you will ever have a problem.

however i hate X2N's and didn't have them long. but hot pickups, big magnets, etc. if i got by with that i think anybody could.

Sounds like someone was trying to act like he knew what he was saying in front of a girl to impress her.

They do what now? Go around to this other guitarist's house late at night and steal his stash. He's got some damn fine shit.

I heard that if you use the CrunchLab/Liquifire combo that using the middle position on the toggle switch will send you into Killzone Mode. The two center coils become active, then, when you shred, you'll kill people instantly.

I'd like to know what this guy's theory is behind his ridiculous claim. Quantum entanglement perhaps?
