RE: Pickup position balancer.

Would the Pups be able to slide along a track mounted to the body? Could be awesome. Do they make guitars with such a thing?

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.

Interesting concept...

I've been struggling with this problem using texas specials; I have them set very close to the body for the jazz blues stuff I like to play, but I would love to be able to raise them quickly when I want them a little hotter for texas stuff.

I don't know why they don't have them (as far as I know); I think it would be easy to design a pup system that will get rid of the adjusting screws and instead depress a spring loaded button along a slider on either side of the pickups to raise and lower them... you could even have preset positions. Somebody get busy

EDIT: SRV's Butter Strat... love the tone and look of that guitar.
