I want one now - even if I have to build it!!!!!
You don't see that everyday. It seems like it would be awkward resting your picking arm on raised pickup
Wow. I'd love to see how THAT is wired up.
All those pickup routes and they are just stuffed with Duncans. ...and no neck pickup? Is that revolver even California-legal?
We had another thread about this guitar. My guess was "wiper contacts". That would make it all real easy.
Slip rings are the way to go. It's how the vehicles that have steering wheel controls work, in the jeep world its referred to as a clockspring.
Tracking satellite antennas also use them to enable 360 degree connectivity.
With some strategic ring breaks, it could be used to select whichever PU is under the strings
Also there was a Gibson model to dealers that had holes in it and you would plug in the different pickup modules. I almost got my hands on one. I can't find it anywhere on the web right now, shhh I'm supposed to be working haha. But here are some that have been around awhile
Ahh here is one, from here no less. Go to post #20
Les Paul "Push Tone" was the one with the overly complicated way of changing pickups through the back of the body. Each pickup had to be mounted to a proprietary plastic bracket and have a molex plug put on it. Neodymium magnets held the plastic brackets in place against the back of the body. Neo magnets are not something I want around my pickups, personally. It's a nice product for swapping between the same 2 or 3 sets but if you want to swap among any pickup you come across quickly, alligator clips are more universal.
Never trust a guitar without tone pot.
