I saw this and went wow. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MS02YaLw1uM
It got me thinking how much I would like a bass with two sliding pickups on a single rail, each on a pivot so you could turn them from perpendicular to slanted across the strings.
The idea is that they could slide from neck to bridge, and also pivot.
Of course one would have to use blade pickups to avoid problems with the poles lining up properly with the strings when pivoting.
Probably use a 6-string blade pickup on a 5-string bass for the pivot feature.
Anybody know where I might get parts for such a beast?
Anyone have great ideas for how to do it / how NOT to do it?
I understand it will not be cosmetically super but that's OK. I mainly just want it to play around with. I think it may be the Holy Grail of my ToneQuest.
