Can anyone identify this rail?

Hey, i got this pickup in a trade. I was told they thought it was an older SD hot rail. I can figure out how to wire it, because i dont know what diagram to use.

The reading is 12.04k if that helps. Altough its looking like it is an old hot rail.

Black is hot green is ground and red/white together if you just want humbucker or wired to a switch if you want coil splitting, it does look like an old hot rails, some imports also look like that but the wire colors are in different locations on the pup, how did you get the 12k reading? did you connect the red/wht together? if your using them with std fender pups you may have to make green hot and black ground.

To get 12k i did green and bare as ground and black as hot (just like the SD website.)

if you connect the red/wht together and test it you should get around 16-17k if its a bridge model

Alright guys, wiered problem. It's like only one of the coils is working. No matter what I do, I get a reading around 5.85. Just under half what the normal reading is.
