That was cool to watch no? I wish someone would make a guitar where you could move around the pickups like on a slider or something.
Onamac pickups made 24 pickups (blade style) to go into a special run of Billy Gibbons telecasters with only a bridge pickup visible. The 24th fret is also the neck pickup!! Hidden under the fretboard.Very cool. I've often wondered what a pickup sould sound like closer to the 12th fret. I thought of burying a small pickup in the fretboard, (like Taylor does on their older acoustics) but right at the 121th fret. Obviously it would only work for playing below that fret. This vid shows roughly how that would sound. Thanks for that tip!
They did. It was the clear lucite Dan Armstrong guitar which had a sort of rack for sliding the pickup around. Actually, let me correct that. The earliest ones were clear and allowed the user to slide different pickups in and out. Later wooden-body models allowed for the single pickup to slide forward and backward, for different placements.That was cool to watch no?

Beat me to it. I think the Grabber was the earliest example of this idea. It didn't sell.... except to Gene Simmons who had a good few of them.The Gibson Grabber has a sliding pup.
Or series/parallel switch (less noise, sounds about the same).Coil split/coil tap?
