Here's a copy paste of the reply. "Sorry man. Not anytime soon. They look so cool but there really are some serious downsides to the exposed poles. The next b-axis pickup that will be released is an MM 5 string in the DL shell. They are proprietary to MTD for the time being" "The exposed metal can lead to corrosion, and the biggest downside to us is the horrible sound you get if a string strikes one of them."
