@Durero @Winspear Would you guys care to elaborate on Cycfi pickups. I'm not entirely sure of all the systems that these pickups can come with. My initial reading of his blogs gets me into geek overdrive even though I'm still wrapping my head around some of the concepts. The Nu multi are individual string pickups that can be arranged in any shape right? His concept of virtual pickups feel like just a matter of when not if: I feel that it's only a matter of time until there become pickup sims akin to Axe Fx and Kemper. Where you select something like Invader for a certain rhythm part, then switch to a PAF Pro for lead, and then like an Aftermath for the bridge. Obviously that's overkill but similar idea. Durero, could a full bucker take the place of a sliding rails system? Stacked single coils or buckers from the very edge of the bridge until the end of the fretboard? Then via software or foot controller you could activate which coils would be active on the guitar (patches from software). It wouldn't be as precise as a rails system since there would be minor spaces between the poles, but might be a compromise?
