Some images of the guitar pickups and their placement during an experimental recording session in August 2008. Note that in many of these experiments the pickups were positioned along the wire, which is a different orientation to a guitar string. Also note that it is possible to use the pickups from the back, and also with additional magnets. Finally the vibrations induced on the straining wires were also recorded at a number of different orientations. Manipulation of the position of the pickups produced some interesting eq/filtering effects.
