From the manufacturer:
Vintage output single-coil-sized "rails" humbucker with the sound of a vintage Strat®. Perfect for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock.
Vintage Rails use a unique split rail, twin coil design and special (parallel) wiring to achieve true, vintage, single-coil tone without hum. The sound is clean, clear and bright, with all of the "quack" you love in the notch positions. Though tonally similar to Duckbuckers, the rails design eliminates any potential dropout in string bending. Comes with four-conductor cable. USA Patent No. 5,525,750.
Available for both bridge and neck/middle positions. For an incredibly versatile guitar, use an SVR-1n in the middle position along with an SHR-1b Hot Rails in the bridge and an SCR-1n Cool Rails in the neck.
For all well-balanced instruments. Works equally well with maple and rosewood fingerboards.
Choose white, black, cream and parchment housing. Wire in parallel for Vintage Strat&grep; tones, or in series for higher output.
