    TBX sounds cool. I have one laying around here somewhere, but both my tone controls will be PP's for this specific wiring scheme.

            I had PRails and Triple Shots in my 335 for a long time, tried both orientations on both pickups, and eventually landed on the “as designed” rails-in configuration for both.

            The reason for this was simple: 90% of the time on those pickups was spent in P90 mode, with the remainder Parallel (which kinda-sorta got towards PAF-ish tones). Series was too dark and sludgy, rail-only too thin.

            I’d always thought of PRails as a P90 with benefits, so I was happy with them in that context - though eventually went back to PAF style HBs for that particular guitar.

            Interesting little coda, though - I flipped a Music Man SUB1 guitar earlier this year - restored and cleaned, upgraded some parts, etc. puts those PRails in that guitar and it truly came alive - so much so that I almost kept it!

              That's why I put an A8 next to the rail coil...to beef it up a bit.
