Seymour Duncan SHPR-1N P Rails Neck (Cream)
Compared to Original P-Rails, the Hot bridge features a beefed-up coil and a more powerful Alnico 8 magnet to deliver the same tonal flexibility as its predecessor, but specifically designed to provide a punchier, more aggressive tone in the bridge position. The P-90 coil in the P-Rails Hot is wound with a special wire type, selected for output and clarity. This P-90 is loud! The Rail mode is hotter thanks to the power of the Alnico 8, and the series Humbucker mode is huge!
This Seymour Duncan-exclusive design is a direct humbucker retrofit that allows up to three distinct voices: full-size humbucker, P-90, and Rails. Recommended for all styles of music.
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 three-way switch (DPDT on-off-on).
P-Rails can be used in any guitar set up for a traditional humbucker or Trembucker. A single P-Rails will bring an 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 P.A.F.-style humbucker tone with less phase cancellation associated with standard parallel wired humbuckers, complete with present upper-mid “bloom” and pronounced string articulation.
