    Re: New Rails vs. Old rails, on appearance

    My main problem with the JB Jr, and the lil 59 was that they weren't spaced correctly. MY strat's single coil slugs were directly underneath the string, ,HOWEVER, when I put in my JB Jr. and lil 59 the two middle poles appeared to line up, the next two out (b and a) appered to both be moving tword the outside of the string, and the outer poles (E and e) were even more 'outside' the strings. -Why?

      Never spaced correctly, eh? Lemme guess, you have a Korean-built Strat. I'm going to go further out on a limb and guess that it was built at the Cort factory.

      How close am I?

        I like them both but think that voice on the sound comparisons is hilarious!

        EDIT: actually just looking at them i dont like the new ones much at all just cos they look so shiny and fatter, but thats probably the photography. But i welcome the changes as i hate catching my high e string on the bottom of my JBJr and having it rip the top of the pickup cover off!

        The voice is still ridiculous

          They're made of the same material as Strat pickup covers. And, actually, they're thinner then the old ones.

            I wld personalyy go in for the new ones. The bridge and neck sit pretty high on my (current) axe, so I have wld have to raise the pups. I am planing on a cool rails for the neck, currently a JB sits on the bridge. It was really bothering me all along regarding the pup not being covered totaly.My stock pups, which sucked big time [super low out out and very very bright making rhythm playing even in the neck position with tones turned off virtually impossible] are totaly covered. I know they lokk like EMGs and kind take of the cllasic look, but I believe the nes pups are more practical.
            Yes I too wld welcome the same for Humbukers (maybe at least on a small scale, or as an option.)

              I like the look of the new ones, though I would really like them better if they were flat colors and not shiny.

                I am EXTREMELY happy for the new design. I bought 10 of them with old design: a set of duckbuckers, a set of vintage rails, one lil 59, two JB Jr. and one Hotrail. I got rid all of them for one reason or another. The new design seems to capture the technology behind the stacked or rail buckers. The new desing answered my desire to have more moderned and sophiscated appearance. If anyone prefers a real traditional design, he or she should get a classic stack or hot stack.

                Cheers
