So I've heard mixed opinions on hot rails. I want to make a Warmoth guitar out of northern ash, and I want to put a hotrail for the bridge. What would that sound like? The sound I want is a very clear, articulate, yet high-gain tone with good palm muting and harmonics. Not really looking for a dark tone. Is that too much to ask from a hot rail?
i like my hot rails that are on my jackson
hot rails are very good
Hmm.....why not just get a real humbucker?
hot rails are a good pickup(in my opinion it is better in the bridge position) but u will get a sound very similar to iron maiden
