Railhammer presents the Billy Corgan Signature pickups, a series of two different pickup models (neck and bridge) for electric guitars.
Presented last January at the NAMM as part of the new Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature guitar, Railhammer’s Billy Corgan Signature pickups will also be available on their own as part of the brand’s Humcutter Series.
According to the manufacturer, the Neck version is based on the classic vintage P90 output and tone, but adds a slight treble bump, giving it a more open treble chime and extra articulation (plus, as a humbucker, it’s of course hum-free). As for the Bridge pickup, it claims to combine the clarity and articulation of a P90 with the thick tone and low noise of a humbucker. Announced as versatile, both models were elaborated in collaboration with Corgan and combine rails (to tighten the tone of the wound strings) and poles (to fatten that of the plain ones) – a combination aimed at enhancing the overall tonal balance.
Available finishes include silver and black, and MSRP is $109 for either of the Neck and Bridge models. More details available at Railhammer’s website.
