The Vintage Rails is a single coil sized humbucker with a unique split-blade design that is meant to be wired in parallel to give you a sparkly, vintage style single coil tone without the Strat hum. In the bridge position, this pickup will be tight and crisp, and will give you lots of vintage Strat snap. For added versatility, its 4-conductor lead-wire gives you the option of switching it into series wiring (using a push/pull or mini-toggle) for hotter, fatter humbucker tone. In the neck position, this pickup is great for all types of articulate rhythm playing. The vintage output wind keeps even the most clustered chords expressive and spanky. This pickup is a drop-in for any single coil pickup route. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Vintage Rails for Strat pickups come with a ceramic magnet, 4-conductor lead wire, and are wax potted for squeal free operation.
