Dean Zelinsky Sidekick Pickup: Cool Idea, Not New

For the last few days I’ve been reading about Dean Zelinsky’s new Sidekick pickup. It sounds like a killer idea, and I’m looking forward to hearing some clips of it in action. My only issue is that this isn’t a new idea, so the claim that it’s the world’s first true humbucker that switches to an authentic single coil sound isn’t quite accurate.
