    Hello Rob,

    I thought that was over a long time ago. When is it going to be out?

    Regards

    Hey 666,

    Right now I'm waiting for the official release date to be announced by Lion Music. So I can tell you that it will be very soon!

    Cheers,

    Rob

    No, it's a RMC Polydrive with a 13 pin output.
    The MIDI electronics are inside of the guitar and connected to the piëzo bridge pickups. This system works great!

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Well, there's a seperate switch for MIDI, MIDI/magnetic or just magnetic and you can add the piëzo to the magnetic signal with the blend knob or in my case with a seperate volume knob.
    My bass has the following knobs and switches:
    -Magnetic neck (Conklin custom) pickup volume knob
    -Magnetic bridge (Conklin custom) pickup volume knob
    -Piëzo (RMC) volume knob
    -Synth (RMC Polydrive) volume knob
    -MIDI, MIDI/magnetic, magnetic switch
    -Patch selector
    -3 band equalizer (treble eq, midrange eq, low eq)

    Cheers,

    Rob

    For my basses I use Snakeskins strings (by Conklin). And since I have a deal with Conklin I can get them for an extreme low price. So I don't buy them at a store (cause they're not available at stores) but Conklin sends them to me.

    Cheers!
