    Paul didn't quite spill the beans but alluded to a project to do with pickups and electronics including a pre-amp, which could be part of the 'strat' style guitar ie single coil with an amp, maybe mixture if passive and active?

    unless i'm reading the the leaves wrong....

    from around 13mins, and then later in broadcast

    I haven't watched the video, but it would be.. interesting.. to see them try active electronics again. I don't know if you ever saw the McCarty II, but that guitar prominently featured active electronics (which IIRC were bypassable). The forums were all like "a McCarty with a batter? WT actual F!?"

    I think they sold like 3 of those. Willcutt's still had one on clearance a month or two ago.

    That’s how I understood it, too. I wonder if it’s some sort of active hum canceling circuit.
