    Rotating pickups.

    Not sure what to make of this. It’s a gimmick, but it looks well engineered. Props to the R&D team

    That's quite interesting. It looks like there would be a lot of tooling costs to get the mechanism to this level of fit, finish and function. I wonder how many prototypes were made along the way?

    Well if there's any merit to it (???) I would think that a simpler method would be a knurled thumb wheel on the pickup mount itself. Honestly. I mean, is the rotating pickup the point here, or the gimmicky levers?

    I want one with three rotating pickups. That way if I get three cherries in a row I get a gum ball.
