I was surfing the SD website and listened to a few demo's, and liked the sound of this set recommended by SD...

SCR-1n in the neck position along with an SHR-1b Hot Rails in the bridge and an SVR-1n Vintage Rails in the middle.


Anyone ever play a Strat with this or a similar combo, or any one of these pups? Thoughts?

they sound like crap in the bridge position.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

I like the Hot rails in my tele as a rhythm guitar, thought it was too hot in a strat though. Although the strat i heard it in was cheap and crap.

I still like the Vintage Rail sound for the neck and middle, but after hearing the Hot Rail demo's more, thinking of something a little less-hot in the bridge, like a JB-jr or a Little-59. Thoughts on those?

i had a little '59.
actually i still have it. its just in the box taken out of my strat
thats mainly cuz i play more of blues, not hard rock.
but it does imitate the sound of a '59 les paul.

I need the bridge pup to be able to do decent distortion for classic rock and hard rock, but not metal. I have a Hellraiser for that. I am trying to keep the sound in the general ball park of a traditional strat sound, but want something a little hotter in the bridge for when I do use distortion, but nothing super hot.

^ I'd probably go with something along the lines of a hotter normal single coil, then- bareknuckle irish tour, fender texas special, something along those lines.

I have a Hot Rails in the bridge of my old strat. I'd probably recommend against it. Way too hot.

EDIT: Although, if you can sweep out 6 string arps cleanly with one of those you can probably play cleanly upside down while being attacked by killer bees.

I've got all 3 hot rails. I don't really use the middle pickup that often so I would say get a hot rail in the bridge and a cool in the neck or something like that.

Well, I like the sound of the Vintage Rails, which are Strat-like, but not true Strat sound, so want something similar but a tad hotter in the bridge.

i have a hot rails in the bridge of my strat is a bit too hot.. i only can use it for metal distortion or really light picking or struming when clean otherwise it starts to break up and distort a little and not in a good way... they are ok for metal only really
