I know there was a little ( very little) talk of these a few years back. I think Matthew even chimed in that he was considering a build to put on the RS-4.

What do you think of the P-Rail

Are you aware of any Larrivee P-Rails

Do you mean P-90 pickups with a blade rather than separate screws?

this is the p- rail that I'm more familiar with...and it's a beaut...but the soapbar version does look interesting

I owned one of the very first Godin Icon guitars, pictured here.

Sadly, I found the P-rails not very good at either job there were attempting to do.
For the company, the solid neck join was a big step, as well as the "tone enhancer" (made the guitar sound "active") at the flick of a switch.

The guitar had no where near the response as either my HB RS4 or the P90 RS4 so it went to a new home.

The single coil aspect of the P-rail, was weak, the p90 aspect of the pick up was non descript.

 perhaps if the Larrivee folks took this concept a bit further, and put it in their guitars the results I'm sure would be better....

"Senior" member means "old" right?
Like over 50?

Too many guitars to list here.
 Too few brain cells to be bothered with...
