From the manufacturer:
Smooth and bluesy single-coil-sized "rails" humbucker. Recommended for blues, classic rock, jazz-rock fusion, heavy rock and aggressive instrumental rock.
Created by popular demand, Cool Rails™ use the same twin coil design as our Hot Rails™, but are wound to produce a clearer, brighter, and more dynamic sound. Hotter and louder than both the Vintage Staggered (SSL-1) Hot Stack® (STK-S2) pickups, Cool Rails are for players who need a louder, punchier, and fatter single-coil sound. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
Available for both bridge and neck/middle positions. For an incredibly versatile guitar, use an 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.
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
Choose white, black, cream and parchment housing.
