It's a cosmo Original Edge with piezos. The piezos, when activated pick up the signal from pressure at the saddles and give a more "acoustic" sound when playing clean.

Re: WTF is this contraption?

You only need to post the item number. It's easier than changing the URL.

130153531203

Stick that in yer search box.

As for the Double Edge, that thing rocks.

This thread shouldn't be in the JEM section of the forums, btw.

I had one in a 620gx. It is no where near as good as the piezo set up in my nite fly, imho. I sold it to a drummer.

Re: WTF is this contraption?

Re: WTF is this contraption?

The saddles have a piezoelectric material that generates an electrical current from pressure differences. When this electrical signal is amplified, it sounds more acoustic, and it is generally only sounds good clean. It has a different clean sound than magnetic pickups.

I would suggest trying to find some soundclips so that you can get an idea as to how it sounds.
