Guitar players want it all and they want it now. Fat humbucker tones. Beefy P-90 tones. Traditional single-coil tones. With P-Rails® you can have it all.
Now P-Rails are available in wider Trembucker spacing for tremolo bridges and modern Gibson guitars.
The groundbreaking, patent-pending P-Rails design—exclusive to Seymour Duncan—allows a full-size humbucker to split to either a "real deal" P-90 or a traditional single-coil sound for ultimate versatility. The humbucker sound is full and expansive, owing to the mismatched coil configuration. The P-90 is super fat. And the Rail coils, when used together, sound like the "2" and "4" positions in a great Strat®.
P-Rails are best used in a matched neck and bridge set. Match the Trembucker P-Rails pickup in the bridge position with a traditional-spacing SHPR-1 P-Rails pickup in the neck position. 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). Wire the pickups in series for a high-output, heavy sound in humbucking mode, or parallel for moderate output tones with less of the phase cancellation often associated with standard parallel-wired humbuckers.

Instrument: Trembucker P-Rails are a direct humbucker replacement designed for the bridge position of guitars with the wider string spacing associated with Floyd Rose or vintage vibratos, often called tremolos, measuring 2.070" or 52.6mm over the bridge pickup from the center of the high-string to the center of the low string.
