Flexible coil-splitting humbucker is ready for anything.
The Seymour SHPR-1 P-Rails Neck Humbucker lets you split a full-size humbucker pickup to either a "real deal" P-90 or a traditional single-coil. Perfect for a wide variety of styles including country, pop, surf, jazz, blues, classic rock, and heavy rock.
Until now, if you wanted humbucker, P-90, and vintage Strat tones, you'd have to haul 3 guitars to the gig. Enter the P-Rails pickup: A full-size humbucker that splits to either a full-size P-90 or a special Alnico-powered single-coil rail pickup. The humbucker sound is full and expansive, owing to the mis-matched coil configuration. The P-90 is a super fat. And the Rail coils, when used together, sound like the 2 and 4 positions in a great Strat.
Seymour Duncan P-Rails are best used in a matched neck and bridge set. To get both humbucker and P-90 tones, use a two-way switch (push-pull or mini-toggle). To have humbucker and P-90 tones and bring in the added dimension of the single-coil rail, use a 3-way switch (DPDT on-off-on).
P-Rails pickups can be used in any guitar set up for a traditional humbucker or Trembucker. A single P-Rails pickup will bring added dimension to your guitar. However, to optimize P-Rails' unique splitting capabilities and get the best single-coil Rails tones, use a neck and bridge set.
Normally, in humbucking mode, P-Rails are wired in series, for a high-output sound that works great for classic rock and heavier tones. However, when wired in parallel, the coil mismatch produces a very usable Patent Applied For-style humbucker tone with less phase cancellation associated with standard parallel wired humbuckers, complete with present upper-mid "bloom" and pronounced string articulation.
