Color me interested. Wonder if they'll do multiscale versions and if they're splittable.

I'm not a betting man, but I've got a hunch they'll be described at some point as "rad."

Did they have some recent breakthrough in R&D? Because just 2 or 3 live Q&As ago Jeff stated very explicitly what he thought about active pickups (for guitar).

I assume these PUs are used in the coming Andy James signature guitar, too, or did Kiesel go really wild and will release a whole line of new active guitar pickups?

Very curious and always happy about more options as long as these don't erase the Fishman option from the configurator.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, I think he left some lingual wiggle room. Hes also said he really liked their A series actives.
