Default A modern version......

There's much more modern light sensor pickups out there, but I'll be damned if I have been able to find them.
I've seen them in Popular Science and on several TV programs.

The modern ones use lasers and I must say the samples I heard on TV proved they completely blow away passive and active pickups.

No noise, absolutely no sustain cut out or phasing and the utmost tonal purity.

Thing is, I can't find the damn things anywhere!

Hey if anybody knows, clue me in. Until then, guess I'll keep searching......
