I watched the video of that CS6, and looked at the in-stock posting for the guitar, and I didn't see a mention of the pickups being anything but lithium ion either place. Did I miss a mention of it?

Yes. Jeff specifically mentions they're the "new beryllium pickups." while the guitar is being played.

I like the tops on that beluga & Osiris. However, the natural colored bevels make the top colors look like super huge gigantic pickguards.

Sweet! It'll be nice to see the new ones going out. Give me some ideas and fill up the GAS tank...

I don't like the "tummy tuck" look under the bridge. I highly prefer if they just carved it out like on the vaders. Makes it more compact, less weight, and gives it a more overall agile look (not the brand).

The twisty mustache bevels are going to look very dated in the future. Do not want. the SCB is fine, as a few other ones but I don't like this style they're going with. It's a pity because they went from taking forever to make more headless to now they have 3? and two of them look silly.

Just goes to show how much variety is out there in the world. I think the SCB is just generally a Nuclear Nope, the almost childlike drawing of the bevel curve (although there are a couple of examples, like Bob's korina tobacco burst that shows the racing stripe, which tick off all the right bullet points to make a nice guitar) imho shows the design maturity evident in the Osiris that was lacking back when the SCB was done.

Whoah... this model with Lundgren Vertigo tele pickups just got a major thrust forward because of this:

Eh, I'm nonplussed by inaccurate intonation via the 3 barrel bridges.

Do or do not; there is no understand.

Supposedly compensated and pretweaked for perfect intonation. I'm all for trying it at least.

The sound difference on this design vs modern "improvements" is significant enough that I'd give it a whirl.

Yeah, my PRS SE Ones have a wraparound bridge with no individual string intonation adjustment, and the intonation is perfect. For a Tele bridge, though, I'd prefer something with some sides like a Fano or Schroeder.

Absolutely. And a Tele style guitar is one that I absolutely would have no problem sticking to a single string gauge, because of 1) "that" Tele sound is enhanced by using a thicker string (that I typically use, which is a 9 or a 9.5, and I'm guessing precompensated saddles are set up for 10's), and 2) keeping it simple and stable, because of the fact of the desire to strain to the breaking point to cull the advantage of barrel saddles and make them work. They sound soooo much more authentic.

Hello Osiris owners! Can someone please tell me how many inches it is from the 19th fret to the bridge saddles, and how many inches the pickups have between them?
