That case all kitted up kinda looks like a Henry J idea....
I wonder if the picture of that case is just inverted or that right handed guitar actually sits in it that opposite way that every other guitar does. That is weird.
Edit: Oh I guess it's actually wierd seeing how I can read the GyRock name on that thing in the case. This stuff IS weird.
Funny you mention... allow me to introduce you to the Les Paul Push Tone. Magnetic bases that were hot swappable, just unplug the pickup cable and replace with a different pickup by pushing into the back of the guitar until it magnetically locks in place.
You ever have your tone pushed in cop?
I digress, great idea. Bring it back.
Now that's a way better and interesting idea. You still get a guitar that you could essentially direct mount or float the pickup on, you could change that magnetic base to different "tone" materials if wanted and change them out fast enought to stlil get an idea for comparison. You just can't get that instant slot machine action going on for live perfomance. Plus you could potentially modify almost any guitar to accept a system like this. It's not a stupid idea actually, and doesn't cost $16 million dollars.
this is close to the system that relish uses.
It's new tech, so it's expensive. The idea isn't bad, but the problem is, most bands have one sound and don't need to have 3571678 pickups available.
I can assure you that the wheel is old tech.
Interesting system, but yea it needs buckers.
I would like the gibson style one and need to check out the relish apparently.
The Gibson one worked pretty good. They actually pop up from time to type for not a stupid amount. If you don't mind a little pickup surgery there are guides to converting pickups to work with the system.
I just think it looks weird without pickup rings.
Yea it just wouldnt be useful for me really. Why quick swap from one stupidly hot ceramic to another lol
I could adjust but i prefer rings in general.
...and yet the neck looks like it escaped from Sears in the late 60s
just get that Dan Armstrong guitar instead
I thought I've finalized my list of the most useless inventions years ago, but this made it straight to the top 5. Happy birthday!
It kind of surprises me that we haven't come up with a standardized solderless way to quickly swap out pickups by now. I mean, it's at most 4 wires. How hard would it be to build a sort of pickup "socket" -> take strings off, pop the pickups off, pop new ones back in, done. Nothing active, nothing moving, nothing fancy. And nothing that costs $16k.
people have done that. It's called a quick connect system and Gibson/EMG have been doing it for years lmao
That's both not what I described, and I've not seen it used by any of the other pickup companies.
I don't mean just a wiring harness - I mean installing the whole pickup in a socket, like you would with a cpu or something. Literally drop them in the top of the guitar, string it up, done.
gibson has literally done that. Same with the relish system.
And then the next company with a brain would make them thin enough so you could swap out without removing or detuning the strings.
There will never be that sort of cooperation amongst pickup builders and guitar makers. At least not in my lifetime.
Heck, in 2020 you still have to make sure the mounting tabs are compatible before swapping.
