    If you guitar's old enough, say 50+, no more need to consult the calendar. It's that way ALL the time.

    O-L-D ? You bet! Old enough to have co-written the first published report on ScUNGe, along with a couple of fellow chemistry & physics students, around 1970. Scandium Uranium Nitrogen Germanium. One...

    World's first? Maybe the first that you know of Mr. Benham. Search back issues of Recording Engineer/Producer magazine, about 1980, you'll find ads for a similar product. The one offered back then...

    Imagine the furore that must have set off at Fender's engineering department. Beaten to the punch by some little upstart manufacturer in New Jersey. Oh, the ignominy!

    :offtopic: LtK, I remember one of these was rented for a recording session I was working on in 1985. At the time, I did notice the unusual pickup placement. Although I wasn't the hired-in bass...

    Neither. I'd use single stranded wires. Save $25 (+ shipping) and avoid the identical failure mode. Those ribbon cables are awful. And not meant to be flexed more than they need to be for...

    Hevvins sakes! That looks like a contender for Missus Murphy's Chowder. Being a Canadian specialty I expect there must be some maple syrup in there.

    Sounds like you're describing a shish-kebab skewer. I expect that would be as useful as a chop stick. As mentioned, without having been subject to salty liquids that could make it conductive.
