Trey Gunn: Progressive Rock Innovator with Touch Guitars and Cycfi Pickups

I am super surprised how much I am loving the multi-pickup. This is not what I was expecting. And, to be honest, not exactly what I was planning on. In fact, it is going to make my live rig way more complicated than I like if I end up really going for it. But…it just sounds so great. I thought I would just dabble with it for recording here and there. But I am getting so many great things out of it.
