Re: pick up trick - OT but need to receive opinions/experiences

Hi Luca,
fwiw, i just spent about 3 weeks with a guitar with Bartolinis--1 sc and 2
hb--and didn't notice any problems at all with noise, with or without the
active electronics engaged.  On the other hand, i wasn't deliberately
pushing the strings toward the pickups, except with the trem bar.  What 
of guitar is it?
